Animator, dancer, model-maker—Clarissa Gregory’s art is interdisciplinary in nature. Her formative years in dance and theatre, plus a fascination for the natural world flavor her tactile environments.  Past collaborations include Effervescent Collective, Dan Deacon, and Baltimore Independent Dance Artists, Goucher College, Towson University, Delaware Center for the Arts, Arlington Arts Center, School33, Maryland Film Festival, have all exhibited Clarissa's art.  Her most recent animation investigates the life cycle of a cicada via stop-motion in graphite and charcoal drawing.  Clarissa teaches at Maryland Institute College of Art, moms, and makes art in Baltimore, MD.
