Anna Mlasowsky

Anna received an Artist Trust Fellowship in 2017, was one of the Emerging Voices in Craft Shortlist Award recipients, and was awarded an Emerging Artist residency at Centrum Foundation.

In 2018 she received the Aldo Bellini Award, the John and Joyce Price Award of Excellence, and she was a Museum of Art and Design Burk Prize finalist.
Jessica Jane Julius
Jessica Jane Julius is an interdisciplinary artist who uses glass and mixed media to create works that embody notions of interconnectedness, perception, and materiality while examining how fear infiltrates how we navigate the world, interpersonal relationships, and welcoming risk into our lives. With a desire to create order, balance, and unity, she attempts to create a new syntax of visual and experiential works. She believes that her gift of dyslexia gives her the ability to see the space in-between, to discover the undetected, and to connect the invisible attempting to show us that there is order in disorder and unity in diversity. Julius has been dedicated for 20+ years to the arts as an artist, educator, collaborator, and performer. She is currently the Program Head of Glass, Associate Professor at Tyler School of Art and Architecture, and the President of the Glass Art Society.
