Maggie Avolio

Maggie Avolio is an emerging visual artist who works with ideas related to the body. Her work often incorporates fabric, thread, and other textiles to create sculptures and paintings that embody a quiet sense of oddity with a subtle essence of violence or an element of that which one cannot control.

Avolio was raised in a small rural town in Central New York and received a BFA in Studio Art and Art Education from The College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY. She is currently pursuing her MFA in Studio Art at Stony Brook University where she was awarded a scholarship and teaching assistantship for which she teaches a foundation studio course.
