Chanda Glendinning is a ceramic sculptor whose work draws from her interest in the virtual communication networks that enable us to share and acquire information on a global level. Her thoughts on our modern communication systems are translated into formally arranged sculptural works composed of groups of softly gleaming, white slip-cast components and found objects. While at HCCC, she plans to develop a new body of work that addresses concepts of disposability within our society.
Chanda is from rural western New York, where she received her BFA from Buffalo State College, before moving to Kansas in 2008 to obtain her MFA in ceramics from Kansas State University. This past summer, she worked in the studio at Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts in Newcastle, Maine.
Chanda’s work was recently featured in a solo show, 37 Tributes to a Bridge, at the Center Gallery in Olean, NY, and has been exhibited both nationally and internationally. She served as Student Director at Large for NCECA from 2010-2012 and organized a fundraising exhibition in April of 2011, Kansas Arts for Japan, to help raise money for tsunami victims in Japan. Chanda will be with HCCC through August of 2013. For more info, visit www.chandaglendinning.com.
