ALICE PIXLEY YOUNG

Alice Pixley Young’s installations look at the relationship between physical environments and the psychological experience of those spaces. She uses mirrors and bell jars to reference the mediation that occurs between looking and distilling a memory. Her work has been supported through grants from the Ohio Arts Council, the City of Cincinnati, Summerfair, the Surdna Foundation and the NEA. Her work has appeared in Sculpture Magazine and Hyperallergic and recently was exhibited at A.I.R Gallery (NYC), London Print Studio (UK), NYC Governors Island Art Fair, the 21c Museums (KY/NC/OH/AK), and Currents International New Media Festival (NM). Young was awarded Best in Show for her installation at 1708 Gallery’s InLight exhibition at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. She has been awarded residencies to the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Jentel, Ragdale, Hambidge, Vermont Studio Center and the Contemporary Artists Center. In 2019 she had a solo exhibition at the Taft Museum of Art and in 2020 her work will be included in the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art’s ‘State of the Art II’ exhibition. Her work will also appear at the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation in NYC and in ‘Ohio Women to Watch 2020’ in Columbus, OH. Raised in Washington DC, she studied Painting and Printmaking at the Ringling College of Art and Design and the New York Studio Residency Program, and received an MA from the Art Academy of Cincinnati and an MFA from the University of Maryland. She maintains a studio in Cincinnati, Ohio and is affiliated with A.I.R Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.
