Partners Alida Anderson (PhD, Special Education, University of Maryland, College Park, MD; MA, Learning Disabilities, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL; MFA Program, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL; Studies, Corcoran College of Art, Washington, DC; Studies, Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, MD; BA, Art/Art History and Asian Studies, Colgate University, Hamilton, NY) and Lenny Campello (with nearly three decades of joint previous commercial and non-profit galleries experience, combined with dozens of independent curatorial projects, as well as formal educational research) formed Alida Anderson Art Projects (AAAP) in 2006 to create a new genre of the visual arts enterprise by combining the commercial fine arts experience with both non-profit projects and educational research. Part of our mission and vision is to contribute to thinking about art, new media, technology, and social issues through an open access forum, which we hope will facilitate commentary and innovative projects worldwide.

In that process AAAP will expose the cutting edge work of artists working the new media frontiers of art. Projects using robotics, sensory perception, holographic imaging, self-contained video sculptures and others will offer an intelligent and fresh set of artwork that marries technology and art into a new creative dialogue in the visual arts.

Through our exhibition partners, curatorial projects, art fairs and other projects, AAAP will continue also to showcase artwork by emerging and established American, European and Latin American painters, photographers, sculptors and printmakers.

  • Edwin Baker III

    Biography : Alida Anderson Art Projects is proud to sponsor "Art in Public Spaces" solo wall by Florida artist Edwin Baker III. Curator Petra Wright has written about Baker: "There people whose light shines so strongly that it precedes them. People who exude love and joy and generosity with every movement and word. Ed Baker is one of those people. Love radiates from him. Ed Baker is a 26 year old painter and sculptor born and raised in South Florida with studios in Downtown Los Angeles and Palm Beach. He is a self-taught artist who first started sketching and tattooing in his teens. After years of tattooing he was inspired to explore painting, now his primary passion. Today, he teaches painting classes to beginners in Los Angeles as well as painting live at festivals such as the annual Beat Swap Meet and Art Walk in Downtown LA and Culture Sundays in Pasadena, CA. Rooted in street art, Ed has found inspiration in artists including Picasso and Basquiat. Though Ed’s subject matters and colors can be complex, at times even muted, reflecting the inner struggles we all face, you sense the inner strength that guides him through the darkness of hard times and uncertainty. It is there, like an intangible under-layer amongst his shapes. It reaches through his artwork and connects with you. He hopes to inspire others with similar upbringings and tribulations to channel their inner turmoil and transform the energy of destruction into creation through artistic expression. You may become thoughtful looking at Ed Baker’s work, you may feel energy or conflict or sadness, but never hopeless. Despair is not an option. He is right there to pick you back up to hit you with brightness and life force and messages of transcendence and love."

  • J. Jordan Bruns  (+)

    Biography : J. Jordan Bruns was born in Cincinnati, Ohio (1982). In 2004, he received a B.F.A in Painting as well as Illustration at Maryland Institute College of Art, and received his M.F.A. in Painting at Indiana University in 2007. Apart from his current body of work, he is an accomplished landscape painter, spending 8 months living out of his car painting North America. His current work focuses on balance; most specifically order vs chaos and what he describes as abstract surrealism. The imagery is driven by his love of materials and largely from his personal experiences. His exhibitions have been viewed across the United States from a solo show in the Indiana University Art Museum to SCOPE Miami during art Basel. He is represented by Alida Anderson Art Projects at art fairs around the USA, and in 2011 he was a finalist for the Bethesda Painting Award. Currently, he is the Manager of The Yellow Barn Studio and Gallery, the resident artist in the Chautauqua Tower 2nd and 3rd floors in Glen Echo Park.

    Detailed Description : Bruns notes that his "work is about balance: how opposite or contrary forces complement each other and become awe-inspiring and beautiful. At times, these forces remain independent of one another but more frequently they become intertwined, indistinguishable, and connected. For me, this balance begins in the creation process by layering non-controllable paint applications like pouring and dripping with more controllable techniques such as using hand cut stencils or classical oil applications. Balance is also mirrored in the mediums used to create my paintings. Shellac, polyurethane, and spray paint create chaos; while acrylic, ink, and oil paint create order. As the painting creation progresses and a dialog between the painting and myself is established, I coax (but not dictate) the imagery to communicate dualities of triumph vs. tragedy, light vs. darkness, and most importantly order vs. chaos."

  • F. Lennox Campello  (+)

    Biography : Florencio Lennox Campello was born in Santiago de Cuba, Cuba and studied art at the University of Washington School of Art in Seattle, Washington from which he graduated in 1981. While there Campello helped to create the Arts NW Student Gallery in Seattle, the area’s first art gallery focused on student artwork. He also organized several exhibitions at the School of Art. In that same year that he graduated from Washington, he won the William Whipple National Art Competition First Prize for Printmaking, the silver medal at the Ligoa Duncan Art Competition in Paris and the French "Prix de Peinture de Raymond Duncan," also in Paris. Campello lived in Spain from 1981-1985 and then returned to Europe, living in Scotland from 1989-1992. In addition to numerous galleries, his work has been exhibited at the McManus Museum in Scotland, the Brusque Museum in Brazil, the San Bernardino County Art Museum in California, the Musee des Duncan in France, the Frick Museum in Ohio, the Meadows Museum of Art in Shreveport, Louisiana, the Hunter Museum in Tennessee, the Sacramento Fine Arts Center in California, The Art League in Alexandria, The Museum of Contemporary Art in DC, the Rock Springs Art Center in Wyoming and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Boulder, Colorado, the Popov Museum in Russia and the Museum of Small Art in Malaysia. In 1996 Campello opened the Fraser Gallery in Washington, DC. Within five years the gallery had become one of the most important independent fine arts commercial galleries in the city and in 2000 became one of only three DC area art galleries to be invited to become a Sotheby’s Associate Dealer. In 2002 Campello opened a second Fraser Gallery in Bethesda, Maryland, at the time the largest art gallery in the Greater DC area. In 2006 Campello turned over all gallery operations to his partner and relocated to the Philadelphia area, where he lived for three years until returning the DC area in 2009. In addition to organizing and curating

  • Marianela de la Hoz

    Biography : Marianela de la Hoz is a Mexican-born painter currently living in San Diego, California. Her artwork follows the tendencies of the aesthetic trend called Hemofiction in which blood, consciousness, irony, time and space are its structural axes. In this trend the dominant instincts of the characters are revealed, producing an encounter with the own individual's identity, moving towards the unique being's interior.

  • Davin K. Ebanks  (+)

    Biography : Davin Ebanks is a sculptor whose current work primarily utilizes the medium of glass to explore his personal and cultural history. Born on Grand Cayman in 1975, the artist spent many of his formative years on the water learning the lore of seafaring heritage from his grandfather. A gifted painter and draftsman, Davin discovered glass while pursuing his B.A. with a concentration in Graphic Design, which he received in 1998 from Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana. Since then most of his work has included components of glass in their compositions while still embracing whatever materials and disciplines fit the work at hand. After graduation he embraced any venue to continue exploring his favorite medium while still working in more traditional materials like wood and steel and paint. In 2010 he received his M.F.A. from Kent State University in Ohio with a concentration in glass sculpture. His work has been displayed at the Glass Art Society’s Annual Conference, the National Biennial Exhibition: Fine Contemporary Craft and at a recent invitational show highlighting contemporary glass—21st Century Glass—to name a few among many exhibits. He has been the recipient of the McCoy Prize—a national award from the Cayman Islands for excellence in the arts and both his paintings and glass sculptures are represented in the permanent collection of the Cayman Islands National Museum and the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands. Davin has been Artist in Residence and Hot Shop Manager at Jacksonville University and has taught at Urban Glass in New York. He was a Lecturer at Kent State University’s Glass Department for two years, an Artist in Residence at Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana, USA and until recently taught glassworking at Salisbury University in Maryland, USA. Davin was recently named a recipient of the 2016 Silver Heritage Star by the Cayman National Cultural Foundation for contributions to creativity in the Arts and ten years “consistent an

  • Elissa Farrow-Savos  (+)

    Biography : Elissa Farrow-Savos studied at Connecticut College in New London, CT. Every piece that Elissa Farrow-Savos makes is about storytelling, each a narrative of some woman somewhere, and every woman everywhere. Her head is full of the reasons and meanings behind each piece – usually a convoluted combination of a very specific experience with a myriad of emotions and thoughts and opinions that could be many, many words, but instead is this one piece, or maybe two. There are common themes, such as physical, emotional, and spiritual burdens, connections lost and found, love and anger, dignity and strength. Meanwhile, they keep company with rusty chains, weathered wood, decaying bones, abandoned objects, and scraps of fabric – the debris of life, lived. Her women are the same, they show their scars and wear them proudly because after all, they make a good story, if nothing else.

    Detailed Description : Elissa notes about her work: "I often think of the sculptures that I create as being inside out. Thoughts, feelings, and memories, which normally reside in the privacy of our own minds are here represented through form and found objects, on the outside of the figure. The effect is to take what is hidden and make it known, and thereby show that what often feels so personal, is actually quite universal. My sculptures give physical form to stories most can recognize, but perhaps have not spoken of. They are each a narration of an inner world revealed – because deep down we all long to share the feelings that we are not quite sure we should feel, about our bodies, our families, and our choices. The making of the actual pieces are a process all my own. Because I use polymer clay, which is a medium that was intended for other artistic purposes, the process of making a sculpted piece sometimes as large as five feet has required me to invent my own techniques and has freed me to experiment with various methods. I sculpt each piece around an internal armature as well as often an external found object. Because I am pushing the polymer clay past its intended size and boundaries I frequently sculpt in parts or slice the actual piece in half and rejoin it after curing. Then the sculpture is painted with layers of oils. Finally additional objects may be added. All parts share importance, but the actual objects – rusty metal and weathered wood, decaying bones and empty boxes, scraps of fabric and bits of paper - this abandoned debris connects the sculptural world I have created to the actual world of the viewer, who seeks to recognize and identify the objects, creating a bridge from my imagination to theirs. I trained as an artist in NYC where I grew up, and later at Connecticut College. I have worked as a sculptor since 2006 and have shown work all across the United States and sold internationally. I am proud to say that my work has been acquired by the Racine Art Museu

  • Aimee Garcia Marrero

    Biography : Aimeé García Marrero was born in Limonar, in the province of Matanzas, Cuba in 1972. She studied art at the Professional School of Fine Arts in Camagüey, Cuba and finished her post-graduate work at the renowned Superior Art Institute in Havana, Cuba. Despite her youth, Aimeé García is considered by many Cuban critics and curators to be among the leading painters of her generation, and at the tender age of 21 she was already exhibiting in two collateral exhibitions to the V Havana Bienal. It was there that her work caught the eye of several international gallery owners and curators. A year later she had her first international exposure via exhibitions in Jamaica, Mexico, Israel, Austria and her first US showing as part of the “Women Beyond Borders” show at the Contemporary Arts Forum in Santa Barbara, California. In 1998 she had her first solo exhibit in the United States at Art in General Gallery in New York. A year later she had her first California solo exhibition at the Robert Berman Gallery in Los Angeles. Her work has been also exhibited in the Dominican Republic, South Korea, Spain, Argentina, Israel, Mexico, Ecuador, Costa Rica and Lebanon. She is in the permanent collection of the Havana Museum of Fine Arts. Her work belongs to a genre where the most important issue is symbolism. Her employment of pictorial references to the classics, in a discourse of her own, often employs elements that are not generally used in painting. Elements such as lead, hair, thread, photographs and others are sometimes used to finalize and cement the ideas being created by the artist.

  • Sean Hennessey  (+)

    Biography : Sean Hennessey creates sculptures in glass, concrete, found objects, paint, steel, light and video that are playful narratives based on mythologies, religions, science, fiction, and personal experiences. By using imagery of common and slightly nostalgic items he tells stories of hopes and dreams, and of memories and transformations. His pieces are interpretations and psychological landscapes of the unseen forces in our lives—being judged by others and ourselves, finding inspiration and will, and dealing with obstacles that may hold us back. His sculptures are kiln formed slump cast glass panels, that he trowels and paints with concrete and stains and frames in steel or wood and backlights using electroluminescence. Hennessey is thus presenting pieces that have a feeling of relics, of archeology, and of the study of the past and the way we thought. He likens the presence of glass in his art to the ethereal aspects of our lives, our spirit, and our hopes and dreams. He equates the concrete with the realities of earth, and life, and the shell that we use to protect ourselves from exposing our soul to the world. Tattered and stained. Covered and encrusted. Yet the glass, our humanity, and the narratives of our lives still shines through.

  • Jeannette L. Herrera

  • Michael Janis

    Biography : After a 20 year career as an architect in the United States and Australia, Michael Janis returned to the U.S. with a focus on working with glass. In 2005, Janis became the co-director of the Washington Glass School in Washington, D.C.

  • Lori Katz  (+)

    Biography : Lori Katz works as a ceramic artist in the Washington, DC area. Her work has been selected for juried and invitational exhibitions in the US, Europe and Asia, and is included in public and private collections throughout the world. Lori’s first experience with clay was on a table-top potter’s wheel that her parents bought for her when she was twelve. Lori's current focus is on work for the wall. The pieces are stoneware with some mixed media. Additions to the raw surface can include contrasting clays, slips, underglaze and high-temperature wire. Post firing additions can include acrylic paint, oil paint, cold wax and metal leaf. "I am intrigued by contrast, the play of dark against light, the pull of empty space against the inclination to fill it up, the placement of line and shape, the use of subtle texture, balance," she notes. "Several years ago, I began working almost exclusively in a palette of black and white in what was a conscious effort to simplify process and design. Lately, color is finding its way back in as my work continues to evolve. I have learned that in the end, process is never simple and good design is always balanced and strong."

  • Laura Beth Konopinski  (+)

    Biography : Throughout her artistic career, Laura Beth Konopinski has kept her material concentration primarily with glass, although uses other mediums including photography and metal. She has taught and worked in facilities such as the Pittsburgh Glass Center, Penland School of Crafts and the Corning Museum of Glass, which has allowed her to explore many methods of the glass making processes. Though to satiate her desire to be outdoors, she has held various environmental conservation positions in conjunction with pursuing her artistic endeavors. Arising from her passion and labors with environmental conservation, Laura Beth repurposes used materials and integrates carefully preserved organic compounds into sculpted layers of glass. She uses transparent glass as a lens for distortion to emphasize the ambiguous nature of human emotion. Laura Beth facilitates the idea of comparing reason and sentiment by combining figurative imagery with biological materials. To keep her mind flowing, she continually questions human rationale in relation to the evolution and adaptations of all things.

  • Korda  (+)

    Biography : Alberto Díaz Gutiérrez, better known as Alberto Korda or simply Korda, was a Cuban photographer, whose photographs generally chronicled the early days of the Cuban Revolution. He is best-known for his famous image Guerrillero Heroico of Argentine Marxist revolutionary and adventurer Ernesto "Che" Guevara.

    Detailed Description : We have access to a collection of 17 vintage Korda photographs, acquired by an American collector and available to museums and art institutions for exhibition loans. The collection includes the vintage photograph of "Guerrillero Heroico" that hung in Korda's studio for many decades. All of the photos were part of Korda's own collection of his own works.

  • Matthew Langley  (+)

    Biography : New York based painter Matthew Langley says about his work: "I have always been drawn towards creative approaches that generate a friction between actions performed as an artist and the visual frameworks that create the artwork. Between these concerns it is critical for the artworks I produce to be able to stand alone without an exhaustive document or map telling the viewer what it is that they are seeing or how they should see it. In the winter of 2014, I gave myself “a snow day”. I took a break from my then current work, which was very structured, and allowed myself a chance to explore anything that popped into my head. Over the course of a week, I developed an avalanche of work that was received far beyond my modest expectations. In what I initially started as a way to expand how I had been building images, I found a new body of work that has energized my studio. My focus on approaching this work is with openness, eagerness, and a lack of preconception of the final outcome. I have found new ways of working and discovered qualities about my work that were unknown to me. In this latest work I have become far more sensitive to the idea of balance. Visual concerns such as color and process, mark making and field, scale and relationship, planning and improvisation, allow me to develop artworks that interest me intellectually as well as visually. The resulting body of work consists of markers that observe, comment and gauge the decisions made."

  • Amy Lin  (+)

    Biography : Art critic Dr. Claudia Rousseau wrote about Amy Lin: "I first became aware of Amy Lin’s work almost exactly ten years ago, having reviewed one of her first exhibits in the area at the Heineman-Myers Gallery in Bethesda in 2007. Lin’s hand-colored penciled dots were a huge success then, generating widespread fascination with her technique—hundreds of small circles in curving strings with little tail-like curling ends that “wowed” viewers. A good deal of the commentary about her work at that time tended to focus on the amazing number of dots, and was based on incredulity that anyone could be that patient and that skilled to produce those large works on paper. In my review I asked the questions “does this emphasis do it justice? If there were nothing more of interest here than the dazzlingly meticulous way they were made, would they really be worth looking at?” My own answer to those questions was that once past the level of “how amazing,” there is much to be seen and thought about here, particularly in terms of the artist’s self-expression in their creation. Since 2007, Lin has had more than 13 solo exhibits in cities both here and in Asia, and been granted residencies in Tokyo and Singapore where she was able to interact with local artists. Lin’s own Taiwanese background is relevant to the character of her work, the curving lines and the meditative character of her practice being connotive of Far East Asian art and philosophy in general and Chinese calligraphy in particular—an art which is not simply mechanical, but deeply meditative and spiritual. Technically, Lin began creating forms with cut layers of paper, combining these with painted and drawn lines and marks in exquisitely minimal compositions, generally on a smaller format. The simplicity of her forms, which nevertheless fill the fields of her compositions in a remarkably compelling visual manner, is fundamental to the strength of her work and can be seen as the thread of co

  • Simon Monk  (+)

    Biography : After graduating in Fine Art from Camberwell in 1989, Simon Monk lectured in Art History at various colleges in and around London, as well as writing on art and architecture. Since returning to painting, he has exhibited in open exhibitions such as the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and the Discerning Eye as well as various group shows and international art fairs. Monk has recently been selected to exhibit in East Wing Ten at the Courtauld Institute. He lives and works full time in his studio in Southend-on-Sea, Essex. His recent paintings of objects in bags initially arose from an interest in scale and representation; despite being depicted exactly life size, the subjects themselves present a dislocation of scale characteristic of toys and models, ranging from enlarged insects to radically miniaturized dinosaurs. The paintings themselves are on a domestic scale; they represent illusory objects on a fictional wall and are designed to inhabit a real wall in a domestic environment. The subjects are bagged and centrally placed on a pegboard or tongue and groove background in an attempt to raise questions about the context in which they are depicted: are they presented for sale; for anthropological perusal; do they offer a glimpse of the odd taxonomies of an unknown collector or the prized booty of an eccentric shopper? Despite the bag paintings constituting the core of his recent practice, other series of paintings are informed by a consistent but evolving set of interests and concerns: the use of ephemera and overlooked objects; the exploration of illusion and the inescapably fictional nature of images; the uneasy relationship between the exotic and the banal; whether it is possible to view the past without nostalgia. Each painting is slowly and gradually built up from many thin, translucent layers of paint over a number of months. The subjects are painted directly from life rather than photographs in an attempt to represent the subjects with simple clari

  • Cirenaica Moreira

    Biography : Cirenaica Moreira was born in Havana in 1969 and graduated from ISA in 1992. Formally trained as an actress, Moreira’s work begins with a complex and intelligent tableau that she builds around the center character of her own image. Coupled with Cuban proverbs and sayings, they deliver sharp, intelligent criticism that touches many taboo subjects of Cuban society, such as sex, racism, emigration and lack of freedom as they freeze a moment where the actress becomes the subject of the photograph. She currently lives in Havana, Cuba.

  • Georgia Nassikas

    Biography : Georgia’s paintings reflect the intersection of natural reference and abstract form. Working on a heated palette with wax from her beehives, she scores and scrapes the multi-layered surface to reveal subtly colored and textured compositions. Over the past decade, influenced by both ancient and modern masters, she has pushed the contours of encaustic art with technique and form that critics have called luminescent.

  • Sandra Ramos  (+)

    Biography : Sandra Ramos is without a doubt one of the most important contemporary Cuban artists in the world and her challenging artwork has been exhibited worldwide in many museums and galleries. She represented Cuba in the VIII Havana Bienal... and her dissident work marked her as someone who challenged the stark realities of the Cuban dictatorship. Ramos studied at the prestigious San Alejandro Art Academy in Havana and later the Superior Institute of Art, also in Havana. She has exhibited and curated several exhibitions in several Havana Biennials, starting with the third Bienal in 1989, but it was in 1993 that her work began to get noticed by international curators and dealers. It was in that year that Ramos won the grand prize in the National Printmakers Salon in Havana and she was invited to exhibit at the First International Printmakers Biennial in Maastricht, Holland and the International Printmakers Triennial at the Alvar Aalto Museum in Finland. Her work addresses many taboos of contemporary Cuban society, such as migration, and the resulting separation of families and loss of loved ones, racism and issues dealing with liberties and rights. The works on exhibition at the Fraser Gallery are from that groundbreaking 1993 series that put Ramos on the international art scene. Ramos' art is remarkable enough on its artistic merit alone. But it is even more so because she's a leading edge, vanguard artist inside Cuba, part of a generation that in the past decade has attempted to break through some of the constraints of censorship and made art, music, movies and authored works reflective of the starkness of Cuban reality. Prints from this important series are currently in the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Grafik Museum in Bad Steben, Germany, the National Royal Museum of Art in Ontario, Canada and many others. Ramos’ works have been also exhibited at many important international exhibitions

  • Alma Selimovic

    Biography : Alma Selimovic was born in Croatia, but was brought to Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) when she was really young. She had the benefit of being raised by her grandparents and often watched her grandfather carve figurines out of wood to keep her entertained. In early 1992 when war broke out in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Alma and her family lived in Sarajevo which was besiege for 1,425 days. They experienced constant shelling, sniper attacks, atrocities and constant shortages of food, water, electricity and gas. In 2006, Alma got involved in LGBTIQ activism with the Organization Q. At that time she was already enrolled at the Academy of the Fine Arts in Sarajevo. Her work “Metal” was exhibited at the the first Queer Sarajevo Festival in 2008 when the festival was attacked at its opening. Alma received her BFA degree in 2009. As one of the more prominent LGBTIQ activists and artists in BiH, she faced violence and threats and in 2009 she came to the USA where she was granted political asylum. Alma finished the MFA program at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) in 2015. Work that Alma makes explore the idea of identities and life that occurs as a result of those. As a foreigner and a new native, Bosnian, woman, lesbian, asylee, an LGBTIQ activist, and an artist, she has often had to feel dual nature of those identities. Sense of loss of home mixed with the world of opportunities, building a community mixed with isolation of individual. Alma is interested in the identity or aliveness that is no longer based on typical acceptance and validation nor impacted by rejection and exclusion. It just is what it is, influenced by circumstance while now standing beyond them. There is still life, rawness, and unimaginable depth and beauty to enjoy and learn from.

    Detailed Description : Artist Statement Blending a traditional craft with new media technology gives me the framework in which I fit my artistic narrative. In my work I explore moving images and endless mirrors to achieve my interest in contemporary work with the aesthetic of Victorian techno-fetishism, which emerged from my fascination with Jules Verne as a boy. Artwork and video I believe will be societies relics of the future. I like to reference many possible histories, and will do so with video or mirrors, to show our common artistic ancestry and illustrate alternate paths. Perhaps centuries from now my work will have the same presence as abandoned archaic machines from the turn of the last century, as people marvel over what could have possibly been its intent. My work hovers between subjects of scientific curiosity, Contemporary video imagery, relics, rituals and dreams. My interests lie in finding the relics of the future while honoring the past. To me, these works are transparent reliquaries of sorts in which bits of saints’ bones or hair — relics — are displayed, with simultaneous intimacy and distance. . In many cultures and religions, relics are believed to have healing powers. My relics can be temporal; sounds and moving images formally enshrined, encapsulating experiences like cultural specimens. And perhaps, to the contemporary soul, they are no less reliquaries than those containing the bones of a saint. With technology rapidly changing the way we perceive art, the current day contemporary landscape closely mirrors Victorian times in the arts. We marvel at and invent bridges between past and present in an effort to define our time and make sense of this highly transitory moment in artistic history.

  • Jodi Walsh  (+)

    Biography : jodi left her native country of Canada in 1967 for the Far East and Europe, a move that would influence her life and work forever. She moved to the United States in 1979 and while art and design has always been a part of her life she first began to emerge as a serious artists in 1995. Although jodi has received private training, she has never studied painting or ceramics at an academic institution. This has allowed her the independence and freedom to develop her own unique style. Using environmentally safe materials is as important to jodi as the images she creates. Layering clay on textured surfaces and suspending ceramic from stainless steel thread and hemp has taken her work to a new level of expression. “Once my hands touched clay it opened up a world to me that I didn’t expect. The thought of creating hand made forms from clay sent me down a path that is never ending.” j Capturing the energy she experienced while living in Taiwan, Thailand, Bangladesh, Africa and Europe is a joy to her and she hopes to others. “My goal is to creating never ending lengths and heights of textured imagery using earth friendly materials” jodi Walsh

  • Audrey Wilson  (+)

    Biography : Audrey Wilson, a native of central Ohio, is currently a student at the MFA program at Kent State University (in 2010, she graduated from Kent State University with degrees in Glass and Art Education), although her work has been exhibited widely for the last several years at the Miami art fairs during Art Basel week. As an intern at the Chrysler Museum of Art Glass Studio, she has worked as a coordinator and assistant in the museum’s public glass general operations, classes, and demonstrations, often working with world-renowned visiting artist. For several years Wilson was also the studio coordinator of the Washington Glass School, she also taught classes, maintained studio upkeep, and assisted with multiple large public art projects, including the cast glass doors for the Library of Congress Adams Building. Since first working with the medium, configuring glass with other materials has always been a challenge and fascination for Audrey. Her current series delve into unrealized and underappreciated theories inspired by science, as well as extraordinary claims, which require extraordinary evidence (in the words of Carl Sagan). A major influence for her work has been through her volunteering at the National Institute of Health as a healthy patient volunteer for clinical trials. Other inspiration stems from working with students who have Autism and discovering the way students think in unconventional ways, which in return challenged her to think resourcefully. As a young emerging artist, Audrey has already exhibited worldwide in museum and gallery shows, as well as art fairs.
