Mo Kelman

Mo Kelman is a sculptor, fiber artist, and former Professor of Art at the Community College of Rhode Island, where she taught for 36 years. Her artworks, which are both engineered and organic, combine membrane-like materials with lashed skeletal structures. Current artworks are inspired by ephemeral forms, such as clouds, steam and smoke signals. A recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, Mo Kelman has exhibited her work at the Maiwa International Textile Symposium in Vancouver, the Cleveland Museum of Art’s May Show; the British Crafts Centre; Korea’s Cheongju International Craft Biennale; the International Shibori Symposia in Nagoya, Japan and Hong Kong; Brown University’s Bell Gallery in Rhode Island; and the Worcester Center for Crafts in Massachusetts. She is a recipient of a 2012 Artist’s Fellowship from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts. mokelman.com
