Margery Albertini

Margery Albertini My art involves recurring themes of irony, vulnerability, conflict, sensuality and asceticism. Current materials include vintage gloves and lingerie, ace bandages, candlesticks, and lace garments. I begin a piece by working intuitively with an immediate response to materials and surfaces. As a woman I explore the challenges that are presented while I attempt to develop a personal identity � a process that also is controlled by societal pressures to both enhance and obscure my physical self. Threads of hope and love, anxiety, doubt, depression, and healing are woven into the resulting works.

I received my MFA in Sculpture from The Ohio State University and a BFA in Sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University. My artwork has been exhibited nationally and has been displayed in outdoor public spaces including the 20th Rosen Outdoor Sculpture Competition in Boone North Carolina. I have been an instructor of Art at local community colleges and I have also taught children's classes with the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Rockville Arts Space, and the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center. My residencies include the Chautauqua Institute for the Arts in New York and in Maryland with the Rockville Commission of the Arts.
