Callie Dowe is a ceramic artist who works and lives in Cecil County. She enjoys working with darker stoneware clays and using various surface design techniques. Focusing on wheel throwing and surface decoration, her mugs exhibit intricate designs with contrasting colors. Using colored slips, she carefully adorns each piece with repeated dots or marks to create patterns. Callie has participated in several community art events including a workshop at the Falling Leaves art festival, a demonstration at Unity in the Community festival, and art auctions. She has exhibited at the Elkton Station Gallery in Elkton, MD where her work earned multiple awards. Callie is currently pursuing an Associate of Arts in Ceramics from Cecil College.
Jenn Katzmire got her start in photography with a simple digital camera she kept with her during family vacations. As she got older, she continued to practice and pursued digital photography in college and,
through her work-study job, got experience as an event photographer. Her favorite thing to photograph is cityscapes and landscapes, with the purpose of capturing not only its appearance, but the personality and atmosphere of each location. For her, photography is the best way to remember her travels and share those experiences with others.
Laura May Maloney
Laura May Maloney, from Oxford, PA, received her Associate of Arts in Ceramics from Cecil College in May 2016.
Laura retired from the United States Air Force in 2008 as a Chief Master Sergeant with 25 years of honorable service. Today, she is pursuing her passion for art. Laura considers herself both a functional and a sculptural ceramic artist, a lifetime of gardening, hiking, camping, and outdoor activities informs her work. She is drawn to the organic shapes and lines that are inspired by nature. Her work often explores ideas and emotions, her hope is that it will encourage her audience to reflect on their own lives, strengths and vulnerabilities, as well as, their own inherent connection to Earth as a vital source of their existence.
Julia Matsen is freshman at Washington College, and is a biology major with an art minor. She went to Elkton High School and graduated in 2017. Most of her artwork is inspired from animals and nature. She uses acrylic and water color paints for most of her works.
Lauren is 18 years old and has lived near Chesapeake City her entire life. She just wrapped up her first quarter at the Savannah College of Art and Design where she plans on studying film and television. Lauren has been creating art most of her life. She attended the Upper Chesapeake Summer Center for the Arts five summers in a row studying two and three-dimensional art. Interested in all forms of art from sumi-e brush painting to jewelry making, photography has been one of her favorite mediums. Her love of photography started with disposable cameras, taking pictures of just about anything as soon as she was able to learn how to click the button. This passion continued throughout high school where she took photography all four years learning how to perfect her craft and composition from her teacher, Leonardo Jackson. Lauren is always looking for inspiration from all artists. Working as an intern at The Palette & the Page is one of her favorite ways to do that.
