Kortlander’s paintings and short films have been exhibited in numerous juried, invitational, and gallery exhibitions and in film festivals throughout the United States and Europe. These include exhibitions at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC, the Wexner Center in Columbus, OH, the Studio Arts Center International in Florence, Italy, and the Kulturrathaus in Dresden, Germany.

McCauley’s work revolves around the effects that diseases like multiple sclerosis have on the body and mind. His paintings combine two-dimensional media, including acrylic paint, watercolor paint, graphite, and ink, with fabric and paper that are mounted on materials like wood and muslin. McCauley’s work has been widely exhibited throughout Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan.
