We are excited to invite you to hear Brooklyn based Sculptor Marsha Pels talk about her work with multimedia and site specific installations. Her work defines spaces within site specific contexts in order to create poetically charged psychological and political landscapes. She is internationally known for sculpture which includes a range of labor intensive processes from casting metal and glass to working with mink coats. She will be producing an exciting new work here at the National Casting Center Foundry.
She has been featured in Sculpture Magazine and the recipient of numerous awards including the NYC Public Art Fund Grant, Prix de Rome, Fulbright Senior Scholar in Germany, Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant, and most recently; the Adolf and Esther Gottlieb Foundation Individual Support Grant.
She serves on the board of Triangle Arts Association and has maintained a studio in Brooklyn, NY since the early 1970’s.

The image ‘To Fly, To Drive’  is from her ‘Detroit Redux’ series and uses Fluorescent lights, cast epoxy resin and fiberglass, 1997 V-8 Lincoln engine, plastic and bronze chains, ivy, steel cable. <>  <>

The Cohen Gallery, School of Art and Design, Alfred University, will be showing Parallel Frequencies, an exhibition of six glass artists– Robin Cass, Kait Rhoads, Amie McNeel, Rachel Moore, Jackie Pancari, and Norwood Viviano. These artists were the 2014 Hauberg Fellows at  the renowned Pilchuck Glass School in Washington State. This fellowship at Pilchuck allowed each artist in residence to discover and experience common issues related to pattern, scale, science and natural phenomena while exploring collaborative practices.

The Cohen Gallery seeks to create opportunities for students, faculty, and alumni to engage in the professional activities of curating and organizing art exhibitions from the ground up, thus providing valuable experience in the business aspects of art. The gallery provides a supportive environment for exhibitions that serve regional constituencies, such as regional arts councils, public schools, and exchanges between regional art programs at the university level.

The Cohen Center for The Arts was created with a gift from University Trustee Michele and Martin Cohen, parents of Adam Cohen, AU Class of 2003. Contact director, Kala Stein, for more information.
