Amanda Rothschild

 

Amanda Rothschild recieved her BFA in Painting with minors in Art History and Anthropology from Washington University in St. Louis. She now lives in New York City as she continues to produce amazing pieces while working at The Met (Metropolitan Museum of New York).

Her paintings, primarily done in oil, focus on emphasizing and beautifying otherwise mundane places and objects through the physicality of a painted surface.  She works with overlooked objects, often those found in an average home, including microwaves and countertops, especially focusing on sinks and drains. These paintings use areas of abstraction combined with areas of precise detail that give these objects a life and narrative separate from their original utilitarian usage. During her years at Washington University in St. Louis she has been featured in a number of student shows including Knuckle Knuckle: a Junior Painting show, and Community Visuals: A Student Exhibition in Two Dimensions. She has served as both treasurer and president of the Art School Council and was an active member of the Undergraduate Council, while also serving on the Undergraduate Experience Committee. She was nominated for the Eileen Battell Stoeckel fellowship in the spring of 2013 and received the Eda L. and Clarence C. Cushing Memorial Prize in Painting in 2013. Prior to her managing role at The Met, Amanda worked as a Studio Assistant in the studio of St. Louis based artist John Sarra and worked as a Museum Teaching Intern at the Saint Louis Art Museum.

Brooke Pelczynski

"Hidden behind the moody eyeliner, and her penchant for wearing all black, is an intelligent, curious, and wonderfully spontaneous spirit pulsating to a rhythm all its own" (Medium),  and according to Medium, "the Queen of Good Vibes", Brooke Pelczynski, is an Adobe Creative Jam winner, talented & colorful, illustrator, designer, and Multiple Sclerosis fighter based in Brooklyn, NY.  She graduated with a BFA in Illustration from The School of Visual arts and has work honored by the Society of Illustrators.  

After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis her main objective became to produce as much work as possible.  She has since spoken at Columbia University about the challenges MS has taken on her artistic life and continues to speak openly about the struggles it will cause in the future.
