2016 Spring/Break Art Show Quiz (with answers)

UPDATE: We have a winner! The identities of the artists have been posted below. Thanks to all the readers who participated–I enjoyed the show and hope you did, too.

Spring/Break Art Show is best known for installations resembling teenage bedrooms (fake pink fur, glitter, etc.), dimly lit rooms with video projections, loads of kitsch, and at least one big sculpture with moving parts, but plenty of paintings line the walls this year. Here are images, from the press preview, of a few pieces that caught my eye. Can you identify them? Send your answers to twocoatsofpaint@gmail.com with SPRING/BREAK QUIZ in the subject line. Whoever has the most correct answers will be awarded a post about his or her work or upcoming projects. Deadline: March 7, midnight. Get out there and see some art. Good luck!
