Glenn Goldberg | Painter
Glenn Goldberg lives and works in New York City where he pursues his painting career and teaches at Cooper Union School of Art and the New York Studio Residency Program, Glenn Goldberg is a painter of richly colored, luminous decorative designs and objects in both abstract and realist styles. Many of his works are geometric and resemble kaleidoscopes, stained glass, or “fantastic flowers”. It has been suggested that his work “tickles” the eye.
Born 1953 in Bronx, New York, Glenn Goldberg is commonly known for his non-objective work and mod designs. Often present in his abstractions are elements that seem to evoke the image of natural objects, such as birds, flowers, cells or water. Glen Goldberg studied at the New York Studio School, and received his MFA from Queens College.
He has been represented by Willard and Knoedler Galleries, and has received grants from the Edward Albee Foundation, the Guggenheim Fellowship, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Glen Goldberg’s work is included in the National Gallery and the Metropolitan Museum collections, among others.
He has been a critique faculty of the New York Studio Residency Program since 1993.
Pamela Lins | Sculptor
“All the places we dream of going have always been accessible from the living room couch.”
Pam Lins refers to her work primarily as sculpture. Through it she contemplates the social and psychological with regard to material, process, and approach. In addition to sculpture, her wide range of adoptive methods includes painting, gardening and fiction writing. Over the past 15 years her work has encompassed both studio and project-based practices which investigate the parameters of sculpture, ones’ physical approach to the work, and the beauty of failure. In addition, the work contemplates the relationship of the built environment to the landscape, homages to past art and artists, the history of sculpture, animals, global warming, plants, Buster Keaton, the residual use of logos, hollowness, and witchcraft.
Lins’ work has been shown in Europe, Canada and the US. In New York her work has been exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Silo NY, Harris Leiberman Gallery, Sarah Meltzer Gallery, Elizabeth Dee Gallery, White Columns, Artists Space, Momenta Art, Art in General, Sculpture Center and Socrates Sculpture Park.
Lins has been a critique faculty at the New York Studio Residency Program since 1999 and she currently teaches at The Cooper Union School of Art. She has also taught at Princeton, the Fashion Institute of Technology and numerous other institutions. She received her BA in Photography from the University of Minnesota and earned her MFA at Hunter College. She has received awards from The Howard Foundation (2007)and the Pollack/Krasner Foundation.
Pamela Lins is a recipient of the 2008 Guggenheim Fellowship for the Arts.
