graduated from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design with an MFA
Christina Kolozsvary was raised in South
Florida, and spent several years of her life living in Spain, Hungary,
Germany and France.
Her mother, a dancer, had a profound impact on her interest in the
allure of the female performer. Always surrounded by older generations,
she became fascinated by narratives of the past
and quickly realized that film is an excellent vehicle to teleport a
nostalgic mind. Christina received her first video camera when she was
eight years old, and she has been using it as a tool for capturing her
wistful or delirious performances of lucid dreams.
Ariel grew up in foothills and mountains of
Colorado. Having experienced childhood in the easy going western
culture of the United States, she decided to move east after earning a
BFA from the University of Colorado Boulder. She graduated this year
with an MFA from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where she
developed work that reflects some of the baroque domestic aesthetic of
New England domestic spaces.
She has exhibited nationally in Colorado, Illinois, Maine,
Massachusetts, New York, Texas, and Washington, DC. She has also been
developing a practice in curation, with a focus on artists that utilize
the language of myth in deconstructing western identity.
Maria Y. Liebana earned her Masters of Fine
Arts degree at the Maine College of Art and her BFA in Art and Design
Education at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn.
She currently is a faculty member at a Reggio Emilia inspired school,
(progressive, learning through play and process art approach), in New
York City where she resides.
Cathy McLaurin received an MFA from The
School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston/Tufts University in 2013. She
has received numerous grants, including The Final Berwick Research
Award, a Berkshire Taconic Artist Resource Trust Award and twice she has
received a Puffin Foundation Grant.
Her work has been shown in numerous venues including: Grace Space,

Vermont Art Zineencourages contributions from Vermont art critics and reviewers, as well as unsolicited contributions on topics in the visual arts from a diverse range of artists’ voices from around the Green Mountain State.
Our facebook page is updated frequently with headlines and images. Please COMMENT and discuss what's happening on VAZ and in the visual arts community! Post your own news and links!
How to submit a PRESS RELEASE
We'd love to post your venue's press release. Please send us a prose paragraph of text about the exhibition/event AND one or more jpeg images. Please DO NOT send just an electronic exhibition card. We reserve the right to decline inadequate press releases.
We want Vermont Art Zine to be a commons for our Vermont visual arts community, with information and pictures about shows, artists, and venues around the state. To make that happen, we need artist/writer participation from many, many different voices in many different places in Vermont.
Do you have ideas about issues and hot-button topics in the visual arts? We post questions for response and debate. Let us hear from you!

How To Add Your Link
If you're a Vermont artist or a visual arts presenter, we'd be happy to list your website or blog (one of each) in our LINKS. Send your link to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you'd put up a reciprocal link, that would be great!
Blog Listing Policy
Vermont Art Zine offers to link to one blog per Vermont artist. Send your request to the addresses above. We reserve the right to remove blogs from this list if they have been without a new post for 6 months. If you use your blog more as a website (that is, you put it up and then more or less leave it, with just occasional updates), ask us to list it under VT Artists instead.
We will be happy to link to one website for each Vermont artist. If you have a website and a blog, we will link to one of each. A Vermont artist is someone who resides in the state for more than half the year. Artist websites should be about the visual artwork of the artist. It's OK to sell through your site, but it should be your own work.
