Shea Hembrey's spellbinding biennial, Seek, showcases 100 artists from around the world, all of whom were imagined by Hembrey himself.

SHEA HEMBREY grew up in rural Hickory Grove, Arkansas in a family of farmers, factory workers, hunters, trappers, musicians, and cockfighters. Though he has developed the majority of his craftmanship skills on his own, he has a varied formal art education, including an MFA from Cornell University and a year studying Maori art in New Zealand. His studio is now based in a sleepy town in New Jersey.
