Alice Pixley Young is a multimedia artist grounded in a practice of drawing. Her work pushes the boundaries of line and mark-making towards cut paper, cast shadows and smeared ash. She works with ash, roofing felt, cast glass, salt and light in experimental ways layering meaning alongside materiality and process. Young’s work has been supported through grants from the City of Cincinnati, Summerfair, the Surdna Foundation and the NEA. Her work has recently appeared in Hyperallergic, Sculpture Magazine and at NYC Governors Island Art Fair, Urban Institute of Contemporary Art, the 21c Museum, and Currents International New Media Festival. 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. Raised in Washington DC, she studied Painting and Printmaking at the Ringling College of Art and Design and the New York Studio 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.
