Charlie Bloede received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with a Concentration in Printmaking from Kansas State University in 2023. During her time at Kansas State, she was awarded the Mark A. Chapman and Cheryl Mellenthin Fine Arts Scholarship and two Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Inquiry Undergraduate Research Scholarships. She has exhibited work in the Mark A. Chapman and Cheryl Mellenthin Fine Arts Scholarship Exhibition, the Kansas City Artists Coalition’s 2023 Undergraduate College Student Exhibition, and multiple other print-based exhibitions.
Cozette Ellis is a visual artist and illustrator. Her preferred medium is watercolor and colored pencil, but she has spent most of her time at Alchemy honing in on her screen printing and block printing techniques as well as learning ceramics. Her work is largely focused around emotion and how that is expressed and experienced in the physical body.
Camila Giraldo is a mixed-media artist based out of Chicago, Illinois. She works with ceramics, crochet, drawing, and photography. She has been working with clay for over 10 years but recently has been enjoying practicing different hand-building techniques, as well as glaze chemistry. She has also been crocheting since childhood, a skill taught to her and practiced by her Colombian aunts and mother. Her diverse skills allow her to create pieces that seamlessly blend various mediums, resulting in artwork that is personal and thoughtful. She currently works with teenagers at a Chicago park district studio and has an internship at GnarWare, a community ceramics studio serving the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago.
