Artist of the Year - Delanie Jenkins

September 14 - November 4, 2007


About Delanie Jenkins:

Delanie uses a variety of ordinary materials to create site specific installations, sculptural objects and images that are inextricably tied to memory. The collection and counting of organic materials are at the core of her artistic investigations.  Through the poetic use of the materials’ color, texture and smell combined with strong associations with language, family, home and place, she explores the life cycles of birth and decay.

Delanie Jenkins is the 2007 Artist of the Year.  She is a recognized Pittsburgh artist and Chair and Associate Professor at the University of Pittsburgh.  She has received numerous honors and awards locally and nationally.
