This week we welcome Cora Jane Glasser, a native New Yorker who lives in Manhattan and works from her studio in Brooklyn. Glasser received a bachelor’s degree at Queens College and studied further at the Art Students League.
Her work references the urban landscape using an economy of means that lets the paint hold forth. Glasser’s family has been involved for generations the city’s construction and garment trades, as well as the theater community.
“My work reflects the architecture of the city and the history embedded within it. This is expressed in an abstracted way, using natural and manmade light to capture the many moods of the urban experience.”
Her work is currently included in the exhibition, Select 2022 organized by Garvey/Simon. The show is viewable on Artsy.net and in person by appointment at the Garvey/Simon viewing room in NYC.
