Myra Mimlitsch-Gray

Myra Mimlitsch-Gray (b. 1962) is a metalsmith and educator. She is currently a Professor of Art in the Metal Program at the State University of New York at New Paltz.

She received her BFA from the Philadelphia College of Art and MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. She produces both jewelry and figurative pieces. Though her work clearly gives credit to function, it would never be confused for functional. Mimlitsch-Gray’s work blurs further the already elusive lines between craft, art, and design. Her work can be found in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Cranbrook Art Museum, the Mint Museum of Craft and Design, and the Renwick Gallery.
