GLORIA GELO - Instructor at MISSA 2020

Gloria Gelo is a contemporary abstract artist, designer, photographer, printmaker, and instructor. Originally from the Midwest, Gloria has always been drawn to the seasonal shift of nature and organic shapes, exploring the space between shape and form. Her artistic philosophy is the fundamental search for balance, a recurring theme in her work. Working in layers, she balances the tension between chaos and organization.

Her work has an elegant simplicity, allowing it to breathe and resonate with a unique sense of design and composition. The result is a modern aesthetic with a graphic edge. Her work is distinctive in the contemporary art scene, whether as an artist, designer, or instructor.

Gloria studied fine art in Ohio and works out of her studio in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
