Ransom, who was born in Italy, earned her first degree in graphic design and photography then received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in studio art from UWF. After earning a master’s degree in painting and photography at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, she moved back to Pensacola and is now an instructor in the CFPA. Her resume grew even more when she was chosen to be the resident artist this year.

Raul Vega specializes in textured canvasses, using a rich mixture of layered paints, which are often applied with brushes in combination with pallet knife creating a dramatic and very intriguing optical and dimensional effect.. He has developed a unique technique that benefits the artist's creative vision. His work is evidence that his patience and artistic development from his days formally studying art at the College of Mayaguez, University of Puerto Rico, and Catholic University of Ponce, PR, and later, at the prestigious Pratt Institute, have remarkably paid off....

Featuring DJ Qc...Growing up in New York, the New York City club scene has been a big influence in Vincent James' path as the electronic vibe pulled him at at 13 years old. Legendary artists such as Sasha, Danny Tenaglia, Victor Calderone and Eric Prydz helped shape his music interests and sounds. During his sets you can expect underground, pounding beats with a bouncy Miami vibe while being able to maintain the underground tech house/techno sound we all love.
