cheryl prisco

Cheryl Prisco is an abstract artist based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. She was born in
Connecticut but has lived most of her adult life in the South: 16 years in Savannah, Georgia; 11 years in Boone, North Carolina.


Prisco heeded the call to create at the age of 55, after nearly losing her partner; after that incident, the reminder of mortality and transience has motivated her intensity and urgency to create. Now two years into her creative career, Prisco has participated in 15 exhibitions, honors including two artist grants, purchase prize award, best of show award and a public art commission.

mark mcleod

Mark Mcleod is an Associate Professor of Art and Design at Middle Tennessee State University with research interests in the fallibility of memory and the use of new technology in the creation of sculptural works. Before moving to MTSU he served for 10 years as the only full time art faculty at Cleveland State Community College where he was awarded 12 grants to support both his own works of art and the self directed international artist residency Accessibility.

Having earned an MFA in Sculpture from Syracuse University, Mark’s most recent work makes use of digital and CNC technologies to create layered sculptural drawings. These works explore the error prone and ever changing nature of memory and its ability to affect how we come to
understand ourselves.
