Cassie Raihl is a Brooklyn based sculptor who received her BFA from the School for the Museum of Fine Arts and her MFA from Bard College. Raihl blends casting processes with the handmade, creating assemblages from wood, rubber, wax and plaster. Her work has been featured in New York at Sculpture Center, Thomas Erben Gallery, PS 122, Foxy Productions and Dodge Gallery.
Julie Tremeryn was born in Pittsburgh but grew up in North Carolina, in a swamp in the woods on an island that is not really an island. She writes stories about outsiders and migrants, isolation and powerlessness, violence and loss. She recently earned her MFA in fiction from the University of Pittsburgh and was honored to be selected for a Fulbright Grant to Slovenia in Creative Writing. During her time at the Lighthouse Works, she will be working on a linked story collection set on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
