The investigative nature of Agelio’s work may stem from his background in sciences – a BA in Biology from the University of California at Santa Barbara. Not wishing to pursue a career in science, he returned to his lifelong interest in art and earned a Master of Fine Arts Degree from the California College of Arts and Crafts. In 1998, Agelio’s early ceramic work was chosen by the American Craft Museum (NY) to represent the best work in the country for artists under thirty in Young Americans. In the years since, he has continued to exhibit in galleries and museums across the United States, including the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Agelio joins Workshop Residence to make new work from unexpected materials.
