Angela Gleeson has been working with clay for more than two decades and teaching ceramic arts in Charlottesville, VA since 2005. Born in the late 70’s, she spent her childhood in the Bronx and Mount Vernon, NY. Her family moved up the Hudson River to Newburgh, NY giving her the opportunity to focus on the arts in high school and develop skills that would eventually lead to a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Alfred University in 2002.
Angela is currently enrolled at Hood College in Fredrick, Maryland and is pursuing a Masters of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in Ceramic Arts. She was awarded the Ceramic Arts and Technology Graduate Scholarship in 2016 and is currently working on her spring exhibition: Storytelling in Transit scheduled for May 18– June 3, 2018 in the Hodson Gallery at Tatem Arts Center.
