7 PM MST (Phoenix time)
On Monday evening at 7 PM Arizona Glass Alliance, in partnership with the Pittsburgh Glass Center, will proudly host a virtual presentation by the award winning glass and steel sculptor Kathleen Mulcahy. Kathleen’s work is encapsulated in her quote “Glass is the verb of my work revealed through the primal form of a drop”. Kathleen’s instantly recognizable glass drop sculptures and installations incorporate bent and etched plate glass on patinaed or textured steel. Her inspiration is drawn from the natural world of water and rivers, and merges sculpture with craft to create wonderful works in glass and metal. An image of one of Kathleen’s pieces is shown below, and to see more take a look at her website, www.kathleenmulcahy.com.
After receiving her MFA from Alfred University Kathleen directed glass programs at both Bowling Green University and Carnegie Mellon before founding the Pittsburgh Glass Center. For a number of years Kathleen has lived and worked as an independent studio artist in Pittsburgh and her work and installations can be found in major museums such as the Corning, the Carnegie and the Renwick, as well as corporate collections. Kathleen credits Alfred University’s mission statement as her creative mantra: “A liberal arts college, majoring in the human experience”.
