When we look at a work of art we enter into a conversation. We bring our own histories, vocabularies, our beliefs and wonder to the table. For me, I bring my hands, chisel, brush and materials as primary tools to accomplish and image. But that image is not yet complete. It too is yet a tool— a flayer to strip past and cut through our preconceptions and touch and arouse and stimulate and remind us of a shared view of our being.

Glenn Doell’s work has been shown nationally and internationally as part of the Smithsonian’s ‘American Porcelain Show’ and through the Theo Portnoy Gallery in NYC and Foster Goldstrom Galleries in San Franscisco and Dallas. 

One man shows include Denison University, Ithaca College, Suny Oswego, Gallery 200, The Barth Gallery, Hamilton College, University of Dayton, Wells College, Cornell University, and SUNY Potsdam where he holds degrees in both Philosophy and Ceramics. Permanent collections include the Everson, Arnot, and Roberson Museums and the Kohler Company where he completed a four month residency as an ‘Artist in Industry’ participant. 

His set designs have been produced at ‘The Kitchen’ and ‘P.S. 122’ in NYC, at the University of California, Fresno, George Washington University, Cornell University, Middle Collegiate Church NYC, Point Park College, Cooper Hewitt Museum as well as several at The Ohio State University.

Grant Support has come through the NEA, the OAC, the GCAC, the NYS Council on the Arts.
