We invite artists to the Center for Creative Connections (C3) to celebrate creativity and the artistic process. Join us for an artist-led workshop for lively conversation and hands-on art-making projects.
Upcoming Visiting Artists
Tina Medina is a visual artist and Professor of Art at Mountain View College in Dallas. She earned her BFA at Texas Tech University and her MFA at the University of North Texas.
Kendra Greene - Writer-in-Residence
A. Kendra Greene hung up her white gloves at the Museum of Contemporary Photography to earn an MFA from the University of Iowa—and she has been writing about shipwrecks, exploding negatives, and stolen woodpeckers ever since. She lives in Dallas, where she is finishing an essay collection about museum collections. Anomalous Press will publish her chapbook, Anatomy of a Museum, next March.
Natalie Macellaio combines the materials and techniques of a metalsmith with alternative materials such as resin, plastic, and guitar strings to push the boundaries of sculpture and installation. In her work, the influence of the natural world becomes layered and parallels the emotional experiences with barriers and relationships.
Lesli Robertson is a textile artist by training, but in her creative process she often combines materials that are a sharp contrast to the usual fibers. Robertson currently teaches fibers courses at the University of North Texas.
Magdalena Grohman, Ph.D.
Dr. Magdalena Grohman received her MA and PhD in psychology from Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland. Her background is in creative thinking, problem solving and education. Currently, she is an associate director of the Center for Values in Medicine, Science, and Technology and a lecturer at the School of Behavior and Brain Sciences at the University of Texas at Dallas.
