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 combine membrane-like materials with lashed skeletal structures. Current artworks are inspired by ephemeral forms, such as clouds, steam, smoke and moving water. A recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, Mo 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. In 2012 she received an Artist’s Fellowship from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts. Mo has taught workshops at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, North Country Studio Workshops, Penland School of Craft, Maiwa, Snow Farm, Fibres West (Australia) and Zijdelings (Netherlands).
