Artist, Emily Connell, creates her work through a variety of media including ceramics, video, photography, and performance to name a few. Her unique background informs her work, which walks a line between two spiritual extremes. She has had the opportunity to work on her artwork at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snow Mass, Colorado and the International Ceramics Studio in Kecskemet, Hungary. She has been published in numerous local papers as well as Ceramics Monthly magazine, and exhibited nationally including the Houston Center for Contemporary Crafts. In 2012, Connell was awarded the Regina Brown Fellowship to research Catholic processions in Italy during the spring of 2013. She has served as a Ceramics Instructional Assistant to George Timock at the Kansas City Art Institute and a 2012-2013 Charlotte Street Foundation Urban Culture Project Studio Resident.
