CARMELLA SARACENO 

“The daily practice of writing has led me to a new daily practice of painting watercolors,” saysSaraceno. “these access a substrata of emotion and thought beneath the language of words—leading me into new trailheads of exploration.”

Carmella Saraceno, Artist, Sculptor, Writer, Creative Entrepreneur, earned a BFA from the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia in 1979, a period during which she also studied art in Rome. She lived and worked in New York City during the 1980s, but relocated to Chicago after participating in Sculpture Chicago’86. In 1990, she founded Methods & Material, which she now co-owns with her partner and sculptor, Roger Machin, and co-founded A+CCT (Artists and Children Create Together) a NFP community arts organization in Humboldt Park. From 1994 until 2000, Saraceno was an instructor, advisor, and the Director of International Affairs at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally.
