Donald Trump flips truth on its head. This is a dangerous game. Our democratic system depends on asking questions and getting truthful answers in order to understand the complexity of our world. I believe that artists have the ability to help cut through Trump’s nonsense. In response to Donald Trump’s assault on truth and everything I value, I have felt compelled to create political graphics in addition to my sculptural work.
I have been exhibiting my sculpture and drawings in museums, galleries and artist residency programs throughout the United States including in group shows at the Trestle Gallery, Central Booking and the Johnson Museum of Art. My solo exhibitions and projects include, Ann Reichlin: Counterpoint at the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute Museum of Art and site specific works, Trace and Translucent Home on Sculpture Space grounds in Utica, NY.
I have participated in several artist residencies, including, Cimelice Castle Residency in the Czech Republic, Sculpture Space in Utica, NY, and the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown. I am the recipient of numerous grants and fellowships, including two fellowships from the New York Foundation for Arts in the category of Architecture/Environmental Structures. Images of my work have been included in publications such as the Broad Street Review, Stone Canoe Number 4 and Number 6, NYFA Current, and Sculpture Magazine.
I received a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA from the University of Colorado, Boulder. I was a Visiting Assistant Professor in Sculpture and Drawing at Hamilton College from 1997-2001 and an Artist-in-Residence at Brandeis University from 1990-1997. I taught Introduction to Sculpture in fall 2016 at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, teach art on a freelance basis to young children and currently serve on the Ithaca City School District Board of Education.
