Cowan Delivers Artist Talk at SU April 6
SALISBURY, MD---Glass sculptor Amber Cowan discusses her works and career during an artist talk 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 6, in Conway Hall Room 153.
Cowan reworks vintage pressed glassware produced by some of the best known — but now defunct — American companies from the 1940s-1980s, reincarnating it into opulent abstractions. Through her work, she tells the story of the rise, glory and demise of U.S. glassware manufacturing and its influence on society.
Earning her M.F.A. in ceramics and glass from Temple University’s Tyler School of Art, Cowan is a Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Grant nominee and winner of the Corning Museum of Glass’ prestigious Rakow Commission. She earned the Australian National University’s Stephen Procter Fellowship and has exhibited at venues including SOFA Chicago; the Robert Lehman Gallery of Brooklyn, NY; and the Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco.
