Molly Sanger Carpenter, Salem
"I have been fascinated by art for as long as I can remember," writes Molly Sanger Carpenter. "I attended The Frudakis Academy of Fine Art working with sculptor Evangelos Frudakis in figurative and portrait sculpture and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, while continuing to work with Charles Parks. Later, after establishing my studio, I continued my education, studying glass art and getting my certificate in welding. Most recently I have learned the mosaic techniques ofPhiladelphia artist Isaiah Zagar."
"In 1986 at the age of 26 I received a major commission from the Delaware Heritage Commission for the Constitutional Compass Rose on Legislative Mall in Dover, many private and public commissions have followed. Most recently I have installed work at the Cumberland County Library (NJ) and Atlantic City’s Sculpture Walk.
My work has been widely exhibited throughout the Northeast, and is in many private and public art collections worldwide. I am constantly seeking opportunities to learn new materials and techniques. I seek to create images that resonate with childhood wonder and delight."
