Woody Othello

Woody Othello,
BFA 2013 Post Baccalaureate Studies at FAU

It's 8 p.m. and Woody Othello is just warming up after a busy shift at a local art supply store. He works full time selling art supplies, finding time to create in the evenings and on his days off. Tonight he is working on the arms of one of the three slightly larger-than-life figures he's creating for Outside the Box II, an invitational exhibition at White Space Gallery in West Palm Beach.

Woody is currently a post bac student in Ceramics, having received his BFA degree in Visual Arts with a concentration in Ceramics here at FAU in December of 2013. He commutes from his parent's home in Miami in order to save every penny in pursuit of his goal of being accepted to an artist residency or two, followed by graduate school.
