Audrey Barcio is the first in her family to earn a college degree. After graduating from Herron School of Art in Indianapolis, she earned her Masters in Fine Art from the University of Nevada Las Vegas.

Her work has been featured in New American Paintings, and in 2019 Barcio was awarded a Pollock Krasner Foundation grant.

Barcio maintains a rigorous, interdisciplinary studio practice in which notions of action, labor, and the human condition intersect with the history of Modernism to form the basis of aesthetic explorations.
