An avid fan of frozen treats, Gayle Forman gravitates toward things that melt, spill, and generally make a mess. Artist, designer, and administrator, her studio practice and research focuses on play, imagination, the absurd and the everyday. The work is realized as performance, video, photography, installation and sculpture. First encountering glass at the Pittsburgh Glass Center in her hometown, Forman received her BFA in Glass from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2014.
Forman has exhibited and presented about her work internationally, most recently as a Saxe Emerging Artist during the 2018 Glass Art Society Conference in Murano, Italy. Currently she is the Program Coordinator at the Chrysler Museum Glass Studio in Norfolk, VA. In February she will be relocating to São Paulo, Brazil for nine months as a recipient of a 2018-19 Fulbright U.S. Student program grant.
