Emlyn Taveras is a New York based artist and educator with over 25 years of experience creating multimedia works of art, and immersive art experiences. Emlyn holds a dual Masters degree in Art Education and Visual Arts from The College of The City of New York.  Emlyn is inspired by the possibilities of transforming spaces through the arts and works with a variety of partners and collaborators to realize this vision. She teaches art in the Pelham School District and has an artist studio in Mount Vernon, NY.

Charlotte Mouquin, also the Executive Director at the Pelham Art Center, is an artist who has curated many exhibitions, and taught art at public schools and private locations. Her degrees include a MA in Contemporary Art from Sotheby’s Institute of Art, a BFA from Parsons School of Design, a MAT from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston/Tufts University with a focus on grades 5-12. She was also certified at Marymount Manhattan College to teach AP Art in 2005, and completed a certificate program with UPENN and National Art Strategies in Arts & Culture Strategy in 2019. “Working at a nonprofit arts space as a teenager was incredibly inspiring for me. The connections, network of thinking and friendships formed have been strong for over 25 years, and most of my friends that I met through that experience are film makers, musicians, artists and creatives across the country. I would love to be able to inspire and bring young people together in a similarly meaningful way.”
