Mary Ade

Mary Ade is a visual and textual artist based in Indiana. Her deeply personal work seeks to encourage vulnerability within herself and others.

American Industrial:

(mornings are for suicides)


the way we dazzle

in confrontation with reality


oblong cornered cult              in the sapped death dream


tonal physique of                    the prominent doom plume


like exposed cricks in fameless antiques

bird swarm in black-thought trees


come by clock : massive grave space

all properties of ovarian follicle and soft steel


winded legs sway like daisy stems

inhabiting concrete snares


now panhandling the rouge of creased cheekbones

pinched                                   veils of late summer



pallid                                       gall of the lily flushed sour


like the whole furloughed town

that worked at the trainyard,

was shut down,


now there is no direction out

Harold Olejarz

Harold Olejarz began his career as a sculptor. He worked mostly in wood and created wood sculptures ranging from waves to figural sculptures inspired by Greek sculpture. In the 1980’s he exhibited in and participated in managing the only Soho Cooperative gallery dedicated to sculpture. Later, he turned to Performance Art and created wearable sculptures. He installed himself, as a work of art, in museums and public spaces across the country. Articles about Olejarz’s performances appeared in many newspapers and were featured on TV news programs, including NJN and WOR in the New York area. He even made the cover of the NY Daily News. Olejarz’s art has been exhibited in numerous galleries and at the New Museum in New York and The Newark Museum, The Morris Museum and The Jersey City Museum in New Jersey. Olejarz was awarded a public art commission by NJ Transit. For this commission he created two etched glass block windscreens, that are installed at the Pavonia/Newport Light Rail Station in Jersey City. Image manipulation has fascinated Olejarz since 1990 when he first explored image manipulation with early digital tools like ColorIt! and early versions of Photoshop. Born raised and went to two colleges in Brooklyn, NY. Brooklyn College, BA, 1975; Pratt Institute, MFA 1977. He now lives in Tenafly, NJ
