Risley Leadership

Georgia O'Neil

Artist in Residence, gmo28

Hi, my name is Georgia and I’m the new AIR for Risley. My pronouns are she/her/hers. I’ve spent time studying fine arts at Maine College of Art and later transferred and graduated from the University of Connecticut with a degree in Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies. Combining my passions for the arts and social justice, I began work at an Art Gallery that was dedicated to enriching an underserved community through the arts. There I was involved in creating multiple educational programs for local children and their families. My recent work has been focused in oil painting, however I have experience with many mediums and am looking forward to exploring all different crafts here at Risley. I’m excited to work among other artists and am so happy to do that here at Cornell.
