Cost to Attend: Free/Open to Public

Join the School of Art and Design for a lecture/presentation presented by Karen Donnellan, candidate for College of Ceramis assistant/associate professor in glass.

Karen Donnellan’s work is informed by the metaphysical. The potential for healing through the manipulation of energy and material are the driving forces behind her work.

Points of departure include the Flower of Life, Tibetan Sand Mandalas, and the Zen Enso, each of which uses the circle as a symbol of balance, wholeness, and enlightenment.

The role of glass is also crucial, given its ability to speak of the mystical. Her experimental practice comprises a wide range of processes including kiln-formed and blown glass, iron and bronze casting, metal fabrication, wood turning, sound, film, performance, and photography.

Donnellan earned a B.Des from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin and attained a MFA in glass from the Rochester Institute of Technology. She is a past board member of the Glass Art Society and regularly contributes to their publication GASNews.

Donnellan is also established as an educator having taught and assisted in academic and workshop settings in Ireland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

She has exhibited nationally and internationally at venues including the Irish Museum of Contemporary Art and the World Craft Council Prize for Applied Arts, in Belgium. Donnellan was the recipient of the Langley Kenzie Endowment Award in 2011, which funded a six-month solo show at the Burchfield Penney Art Center, Buffalo. In 2012, her work was shortlisted for the World Craft Council Film Festival.
