Celia Eberle grew up in the Piney Woods of East Texas. She received her BFA with Honors from Stephen F. Austin State University in 1974, and dates her professional career from her inclusion in Women of the Big State, juried by Lisa Phillips in 1986. Eberle commuted from Longview to Dallas to participate in the historic co-op 500X Gallery from 1987 to 1992. She has had over twenty solo exhibits and has garnered awards that include the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Individual Support Grant, the Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant, the Nasher Sculpture Center Microgrant, the Dozier Travel Grant from the Dallas Museum of Art, and an M-AAA/NEA Fellowship. In July of 2022, she presented Waiting for Robot as part of the Nasher Public program at the Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas. In 2017 she was included in Commanding Space: Women Sculptors of Texas at the Amon Carter Museum of Art, Fort Worth, and To See is to Have at the McNay Art Museum, San Antonio. In 2014, she held a one person exhibit at the Art Museum of Southeast Texas, Beaumont. Public collections include the Dallas Museum of Art, the San Antonio Museum of Art, the Art Museum of Southeast Texas, and the J. Wayne Stark Gallery at Texas A&M. She believes that, in spite of our love of technology and progress, the basic character of the human experience remains essentially unchanged.

Consuelo Jimenez Underwood was born in Sacramento, California, the daughter of migrant agricultural workers, a Chicana mother and a father of Huichol Indian descent. Crossing borders and negotiating between three perspectives has always been fundamental to her identity and the basis of her creative process. Consuelo’s work ranges from delicate miniature tapestries to monumental fiber and mixed media installations juxtaposing the natural beauty and ecological destruction along the US/Mexico border. Consuelo has exhibited and lectured nationally and internationally for more than thirty years. Her work is part of the permanent collections of museums such as the Smithsonian American Museum of Art, Museum of Art & Design in New York, the Mexican Museum in San Francisco, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the Oakland Museum of California, and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. In 2022 the artist was awarded the Latinx Artist Fellowship, a first-of-its-kind initiative that recognizes 15 of the most compelling Latinx visual artists working in the United States today. She is the subject of Consuelo Jimenez Underwood: Art, Weaving Vision, a comprehensive analysis of her work and impact on feminist textile art history.

Julianny Ariza Vólquez (1987, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic).
