A solo exhibition of works that McDaniel College assistant professor of art Chloe Irla (C’07) produced during her Fall 2022 sabbatical. Works featured include revisited projects from her “Home Work” series inspired by the COVID-19 pandemic in Fall 2020, along with projects from her newly established design studio, irladen. She documents her garden, as well as produces one-of-a-kind artworks and designs, including clothing and wearables, paintings, ceramics, handmade books, videos, and more.
Irla, who grew up in Richmond, Virginia, now considers Westminster, Maryland, her home. In addition to teaching art and design courses at McDaniel, she is involved in the community; she has established Little Free Libraries to encourage literacy throughout Westminster, is a board member of Rape Crisis Intervention Services of Carroll County and is currently working to become a master gardener of Carroll County. In addition to her bachelor’s degree from McDaniel, she holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Mount Royal School of Art at Maryland Institute College of Art in addition to a certificate in the college teaching of art and post-baccalaureate certificate in studio art. http://chloe-irla.com
