About the Artists

ANNA BOOTHE
Anna has been an active glass artist since 1980. Her work has been exhibited at the Tittot Glass Art and Bergstrom-Mahler Museums, Museum of American Glass, and Kentucky Museum of Art and Design, and is part of the permanent collections of the Corning Museum of Glass and the Tacoma Museum of Art. She spent 16 years as a Tyler glass faculty member, then moved to Salem Community College (NJ) to develop its glass art program. In her artist's statement, Anna writes, "Glass, as a material, is appropriate for what I seek to express because it is capable of conveying the simultaneous strength and fragility, as well as the translucency, or degree of visibility, of these associations. I'm thirty years into my love affair with this elusive stuff and there is so much more to explore."

 

NANCY COHEN
Nancy has been living and making sculpture in Jersey City, NJ for 25 years. Her work has been widely exhibited throughout the United States and is represented in important collections, such as The Montclair Museum, The Newark Public Library, The Weatherspoon Art Gallery, Yale University Art Gallery and The Zimmerli Museum. She writes in her artist's statement, "At the core of my work is the intense contradiction between fragility and strength, both in our personal lives and in the broader environment. My working methods merge material and formal concerns with content to explore the interplay of these ideas. I counterpose skin and structure, exploit extreme imbalances in weight, incorporate light into physical constructions. All of this allows me to make literal the delicate, ephemeral balance of my subjects."
