Polly Apfelbaum - sculptor, in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, represented by D’Amelio Terras Gallery, NYC
Polly Apfelbaum has been showing consistently in New York and abroad since her first one-person show in New York in 1986. Polly Apfelbaum's work is both painting and sculpture, and perhaps photography and fashion and formless material process as well. Its all these things - wildly so and wildly not so.
Her work is in the collections of The Museum of Modern of Art, New York; The Whitney Museum of Art of American Art, New York; Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY; The Henry Art Gallery, Seattle; The Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia; and the National Academy Museum, New York. The artist has received important grants and awards, including the Rome Prize, a Guggenheim Fellowship, an Academy Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, a Richard Diebenkorn Fellowship, a Joan Mitchell Fellowship, an Artist's Fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts, an Anonymous Was a Women Award and a Pollack-Krasner Foundation grant.
