Lorraine Glessner

Lorraine Glessner’s love of surface, pattern, markmaking, image and landscape has led her to combine disparate materials and processes such as silk, wood, branding, rust, paper and more in her work. Lorraine is an Assistant Professor at Tyler School of Art, Temple Univeristy, a workshop instructor and an award-winning artist. She holds an MFA from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, a BS from Philadelphia University, and an AAS in Computer Graphics from Moore College of Art & Design.  Glessner has a diverse art background with skills that include painting, sculpture, graphic design, interior design, textile design, photography, digital imaging and much more. Among her most recent professional achievements is a Second Place award in Sculpture from Art of the State at the State Museum in Harrisburg, PA, a recently completed artist residency at Jentel Foundation and an acquisition by Kelsey-Seybold Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.  Glessner's work has been exhibited locally and nationally in galleries, craft centers, schools, libraries, universities, and more.  

Lorraine Glessner is exhibiting her latest body of work in Santa Fe for the first time during Summer 2017 in the Taking Wing exhibition at Ellsworth Gallery.  Taking Wing opens Friday June 16th, and runs through August 16th.
