Teresa Bramlette Reeves

I was born in Athens, Georgia and received a BFA in drawing and painting from the University of Georgia, a MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University, and a PhD in art history from the University of Georgia.
I was formerly represented by Althea Viafora Gallery and Information Gallery in NYC, and ID Galerie in Düsseldorf, Germany. In addition to solo shows at these commercial venues, I have also presented solo projects at the Jersey City Museum, P.S. 1 Museum and White Columns as well as being included in numerous group shows in Atlanta, New Orleans, NYC, Cologne and Paris. I was awarded a Pollock-Krasner Grant, and Fellowship Residencies at the MacDowell Colony, Cite International des Arts (Paris), Hambidge Center, and the P.S. 1 National Studio Program. Prior to teaching at Georgia State University (2001-11), I worked as the Curatorial Assistant at the following New York City institutions: The New Museum of Contemporary Art, the Guggenheim Museum and Artists Space. I was formerly the Assistant Director of The New York Kunsthalle and the Gallery Director and Curator for the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center. I am currently the Director of Curatorial Affairs at the Zuckerman Museum of Art.

Jessica Caldas (b.1986) is a Puerto Rican American, Georgia and Florida based artist.

Caldas has participated in numerous artist residencies, including the Vermont Studio Center in 2020, the Art on the Atlanta Beltline AIR in 2020-2021, and was a 2022-2023 MOCA GA Working Artist Project fellow.

Caldas received her MFA at Georgia State University in 2019 and received her BFA in printmaking from the University of Georgia in 2012. She is a part of Living Melody Collective, a multidisciplinary collective of femme artists that is based in Atlanta but is also nomadic along the East coast and throughout the Southeast.
