Glen Kaufman’s art experience and influences were extensive — studying, then teaching, at Cranbrook Academy of Art, a Fulbright Scholarship in Denmark, a year as a designer in Dorothy Liebes' New York studio, and study visits to the UK. He landed at the University of Georgia where he headed the fibre program for 20+ years, spending one-half of each year in Japan for much of that time. The work in browngrotta arts’ Glen Kaufman: Elegant Eloquence, dates from1960 through 2010. It includes double weaves, macramé and a freestanding cylindrical form from the 60s, silk-screened and gold-leafed damask works from his years in Asia, collages, works of indigo on shibori, and gold leaf on paper.
