Rebecca Giles, Oil Painter
Rebecca is an autistic artist who was born in Media, PA, but grew up in Europe and the Middle East. Rebecca’s work explores light and its relationship to color, focusing on themes of luminosity, translucency, and reflection. Lights often cause a strong reaction in Rebecca, hitting her with stunning force and making her shiver, become weak, or feel dizzy. Rebecca approaches her work with the goal of recreating this experience of light’s beautiful intensity. She is fascinated with light and its power to give extraordinary beauty to ordinary objects. Rebecca is a 3rd-year student at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA).
Katie Holder, Jewelry Artist
Katie is a local artisan from North East, MD who has been designing jewelry for over twenty years. With a strong base of jewelry design in her undergraduate, she recently completed her New York Institute of Art and Design Degree. She finds inspiration in nature and even with a focus on the historical art of chainmaille, you’ll still see quite a lot of Mother Nature’s influence in her designs. She designs each piece with the understanding that we are all connected through invisible links.
