Atlanta artist Cheryl Myrbo owned a pottery business in Minnesota and was awarded a patent on a drinking vessel design in 1985. After an extensive Key West self-taught painting detour, she moved to Atlanta to study and work alongside professional artists and graduated from the Atlanta College of Art with Honors in 1997.
Ms. Myrbo directed the Spruill Center for the Arts Summer Art Camp for three years, annually coordinates the four-time award-winning Atlanta High School Art Exhibition (AHSAE) for the Atlanta Dogwood Festival (since 1999), coordinates Creation Station for the Atlanta Arts Festival, and teaches for the Atlanta Partnership for the Arts in Learning (APAL) conducting workshops and residencies in Atlanta.
Ms. Myrbo serves on the Board of Directors of StreetStage Atlanta and was on the board of the Arts Exchange, SECCC, for two years. In 2009 she was awarded the 2nd Annual Flourish Award for Excellence as a Community/Public Servant by Kennesaw State University.
Myrbo enjoys working in clay, paint, and html. She dreams of manufacturing drinking vessels in stoneware, plastic and glass. When not administrating exhibitions or writing and maintaining websites for friends, she finds time to paint the ongoing series: “Circus: Costume, Prop, and Baggage.” The show was displayed in the Atlanta Rialto in January - February 2011 and again during the Durham Arts Council (North Carolina) 2011 season -- to rave reviews. Myrbo often collaborates with her husband Tim Settimi, and their mural work can be found in Georgia, Florida, and Minnesota.
