Maria Tritico, the education director at the Lighthouse ArtCenter and a recent SNAG member, tragically lost her life after a stray bullet struck her this month.
Maria was a graduate of Texas State University and The Art Institute of Chicago, and worked at the ArtCenter since 2017. She was a metalsmith and jewelry artist. Her work features silver and gold asymmetrical patterns on earrings and necklaces and had been on display in the United States and Canada. She also worked with art-therapy programs for veterans, the elderly, and for adults with special needs.
Lighthouse ArtCenter has created a memorial fund to continue the work Maria was doing. Those interested can donate at lighthousearts.org
All of us at SNAG are so sorry to hear of this terrible loss and our thoughts are with her friends, coworkers and family.
