Theme: It's About Color

“I never met a color I didn’t like.” – Dale Chihuly


Juror: Barbara Korman  "My Dad was a playful gambler and my Mom a fabulous baker... How could I not become an artist? Having fun taking chances, and making things that are so much more than their ingredients." This is how Barbara Korman describes her affinity and lifetime involvement with art. Working in New York City and Westchester County, she maintains a studio for the design and production of three dimensional constructions, unique cast bronzes and wood installations. Korman has traveled to every continent in the world, from the National Parks in the United States to the Himalayas in Nepal, collecting regional art and making photographic notations of the land's textures and formations. In the studio, photographs are tacked to the walls, galvanizing those memories and relationships important to her current work. Her sculptures, both free standing and wall hanging, are created with a variety of materials. Layers of color are added to activate the surfaces and affect the visual movement of the forms. Korman's award winning works have been exhibited in more than one hundred solo and group shows in leading museums and galleries, including The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, Neuberger Museum of Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Grounds for Sculpture, Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, Katonah Museum of Art, Hudson River Museum and Tiffany and Company’s Fifth Avenue windows. Today, her sculptures are included in public and private collections throughout the world, including the Neuberger Museum of Art, Phelps Memorial Hospital, and Olivetti-Rome. A graduate of New York City's High School of Music and Art, she earned her Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Fine Arts at the New York State College of Ceramics, Alfred University. Korman has dedicated a large part of her life to education and the development of creative thinking. Named "StyleMaker" by the New York Times, she is listed in Foremost Women of the 20th Century and Who's Who in America. Korman is a former Board President and current Program Director of the Katonah Museum Artists' Association.
