Laura Allen Headshot

Laura Allen is a Virginia native who studied art at Davidson College and sculpture at Portland State University. Prior to graduate school, she lived in tent in Southwest Virginia for a year with her husband. After living in Portland, Raleigh, and then moving up the I-95 corridor in Virginia, she is quite pleased to be back in the mountains in Crozet. Most of her time is spent wrangling two super kids to the bus stop and activities. She exhibits in Virginia, Colorado and California. Primarily a sculptor, she is passionate about materials and process. Reclaimed objects, rich in inherent history and associations, are sewn, wrapped, folded and glued to create forms that comment on her current lifestyle and interests. She is fascinated with the hand-working processes of her grandmothers that create imperfect outcomes, adding personal, human touches to otherwise manufactured and plastic objects.  www.lauraelizabethallen.com

Elizabeth Herlevsen has taught art locally at North Branch School and Monticello High School.liz fair (1)

Lexy McCallum earned her BA in psychology and art history at UC Santa Barbara and studied art at San Francisco Art Institute.  She received her Visual Arts Teaching Credential at St. Mary’s College of California.  Lexy recently moved to Charlottesville with her family and is thrilled to be an art teacher in the Albemarle County Public Schools.  She comes to Crozet Arts with over 15 years of teaching experience to various age groups, from kindergarten to high school.  Her goal as an art educator is to help students keep their innate connection to creativity and develop the skills they need to participate in the complex thinking process that goes into making works of art.
