Gilardi</strong> (1996; 2001), <strong>Jessee J. Smith</strong> (1999; 2010), and <strong>Amanda Ohmer </strong>(2010).</p> <p><strong>Leslie Getz<br>1995 B.F.A. </strong>Drawing &amp; Photography<br><strong>2002 M.A.Ed. </strong>Art Education<br>I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (1995) with a concentration in drawing and photography then entered the Masters of Arts in Education (2002) program and completed my teaching certificate to teach art. I immediately began teaching art in Northwest Local Schools and am currently in my 19<sup>th</sup> year of teaching. I have taught 9-12 and currently k-5. No matter what grade level I&rsquo;m teaching, I teach expression, creativity, and problem solving &ndash; the innovators of tomorrow, and I teach kindness and compassion &ndash; the humans of tomorrow. Through all of this, I continue to produce my own art and submit to call for entries around the country in many different venues. My current theme is the social and political climate of this country. Good art is not about matching your sofa, but about the conversation it starts.</p> <p><strong>Anthony W. Gilardi<br>1996 B.F.A. </strong>Graphic Design<br><strong>2001 M.A.Ed. </strong>Art Education<br>After graduating MSJ in 1996 with a BFA in Graphic Design, I chose to complete my Art Education licensure the next year. After earning my teaching license, I had to make a choice &ndash; a career in Graphic Design or a life as an Art Educator. Inwardly I felt drawn to working in a classroom with young people, and have had the good fortune to work as an Art Educator now for over 20 years. I have enjoyed guiding young learners in the joys of being creative. I found inspiration and energy in teaching and working with them that often encouraged the development of my own personal artwork. Additionally, in recent years I have found opportunities to apply what I learned about Graphic Design, nicely rounding out my artistic experiences. Over the years, through my own education and learning, and the teaching I do daily, my personal work evolved. Currently it ranges from abstract mixed-media, Lettering, architectural ceramic sculptures, to simple object drawings. More recently I have started to experiment with alternative photography applications with mixed media drawing and painting. As well, I credit the growing Craft Brewing industry as inspiration for my return to Graphic Design. In it I have found unique opportunities to design items ranging from tap handle labels, custom-printed glassware, and brewery logos.</p> <p><strong>Jessee J. Smith<br>1999 B.A. </strong>General Art; <strong>B.S.</strong> Natural Science<br><strong>2010 B.F.A. </strong>Sculpture<br>A native of Cincinnati, Jessee J. Smith grew up in a semi-rural neighborhood in Colerain, where the nearby woods fostered a lifelong interest in the natural world. As a student at Mount St. Joseph, Jessee studied metalworking and jewelry-making techniques with Dottie Heil, often drawing on subjects from her biology classes as inspiration for jewelry designs. In 2002, Jessee began taking a lost wax casting workshop in Dayton, Ohio, from David Brand, an accomplished sculptor and metalsmith. This ancient method of metalworking offered a new range of possibilities, and would provide the basis for Jessee&rsquo;s thesis work when she returned to the Mount to complete a B.F.A. in Sculpture in 2010. Jessee currently works as a metalsmith, making jewelry (featured in her two Etsy shops, SilverspotMetalworks and SilverspotStudio) with lost wax casting and fabrication techniques. She continues to explore the forms and fascinating patterns found in nature through the medium of lost wax vessels and small sculpture.</p> <p><strong>Amanda Ohmer<br>2010 B.A.</strong> Graphic Design<br>Amanda Ohmer received her bachelor&rsquo;s in Graphic Design with a minor in iDesign (digital design) from the College of Mount St. Joseph (now known as Mount St. Joseph University). The summer before her senior year, Ohmer received an internship at the British company, dunnhumbyUSA, whose American headquarters were located in downtown Cincinnati. Following her three-month internship, she worked up the moxie to ask her boss if the company could still use her design assistance in the form of a contractor. Her boss agreed, and after graduation, she was offered a full-time design position. In 2015, dunnhumby was separated into two companies, one of which would be called 84.51&deg;, which is where Ohmer still works today. Ohmer is now an Art Director on 84.51&deg;&rsquo;s Creative team. Her main focus is print design, creating best-customer communications for the Kroger Company. From original conception to art directing photo shoots, Ohmer creates beautiful and engaging one-to-one print pieces. Outside of 84.51, she has the pleasure of tackling various freelance assignments, from wedding invitations to t-shirt designs.</p> <p><strong>Digital Images are available upon request.&nbsp; </strong></p> <p><strong>Studio San Giuseppe</strong> is a nonprofit art gallery located in the Dorothy Meyer Ziv Art Building on the campus of Mount St. Joseph University, at the crossroads of Delhi and Neeb in Delhi Township, 15 minutes west of downtown Cincinnati.&nbsp;<strong>Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 10:00 AM &ndash; 5:00 PM, Saturdays and Sundays 1:00 &ndash; 5:00 PM.</strong>&nbsp; Admission is free.&nbsp; The Gallery is closed on major holidays, including Monday, January 21, for Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday.
