Gloria Vasquez is a former Texan with an MFA in sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth  University(VCU), and a Bachelor of Science Math degree from the  University of Houston. She has managed to experience living in an  unusual variety of places around the world: Texas (Laredo, Houston,  Austin, San Antonio), Missouri (St. Louis), Los Angeles,  Colombia(Bogota), Moscow, and Washington. In the mid 1990’s, after a 10-  year telecommunications engineering career, she returned to college to  study art. Upon finishing her MFA at VCU, she taught sculpture at the  University of Richmond, Mary Washington University (Fredericksburg,  Virginia), Jorge Caldos University(Bogota, Colombia) and VCU. Her work  has been exhibited/performed in Texas, Colombia, New York, Washington,  Maryland, and Virginia. See Gloria's work here.

Sarah Schneiderman earned a BFA from the Corcoran School of Art and an MFA from the  California Institute of the Arts. Even though her need to make a living  interfered with her art-making, Sarah continued to work on inventive  projects, including knitting unique sweaters and making art out of  trash. After retiring, she took up scuba diving and began to study fish  and the sea. This new hobby made Sarah aware of garbage in the oceans,  so she began to make artwork representative of fish from debris. Now,  she tackles additional social, political, and environmental issues as  well.

Sarah’s  work has been seen from Seattle, Washington, to Clarkston, Georgia, and  from Santa Monica, California, to Damariscotta, Maine. She recently  published a book of portraits she made during the 2017-2021 United  States presidential administration called, You’re Fired! I Quit! A Visual Commentary on the 45th Presidency of the United States of America, which is available on  Sarah continues to use trash as her medium while exploring non-toxic  and non-plastic adhesives. Her concern for the environment has expanded  beyond art to lifestyle choices, including eating a vegan diet, using  refillable containers, and repurposing household materials.

Sarah calls Glastonbury, CT, and Bonaire, Dutch Caribbean, home.
