2022 Evergy Featured Artist

Cecilia Labora, Glass Artist & Jewelry Designer

Glass artist and jewelry designer, Cecilia Labora, of Kansas City, Missouri, a Mexico native, has been selected as the Evergy Featured Artist for Autumn & Art 2022: “Expressing creativity has always been a part of my life,” the artist said. “As a small child I spent countless hours playing with seed beads, or as they were known to me in my native Mexico, “chaquira.” In 2003 I learned about handmade glass beads, also known as flameworked or lampworked glass beads. I took a class as soon as I could find one and my love affair with molten glass began. My passion for this art form continues to grow with every bead I make.”


Starting in 2011, one artist or artist team has been selected to represent Autumn & Art as our Featured Artist. 

These artists have acted as an ambassador for our event, and we are so grateful that they have generously shared their talents with us!
