About the Artist
Sabrina Knowles and Jenny Pohlman are seekers. They have undertaken six international two-month journeys absorbing religious beliefs, political histories, current affairs, architecture, social structure and people's personal stories. After lengthy incubation they morph their experiences into sculptural stories to share what they have learned about healing, self-empowerment, compassion, strength, grace, and the power of the human spirit through assemblages of sculpted glass and fabricated steel. Their intention is to create works that speak of our common humanity.
Knowles' and Pohlman's work has been featured in exhibitions at Bainbridge Island Museum of Art (WA); Museum of Northwest Art (La Connor, WA); Edmunds Museum (WA); Larsen Museum (Yakima, WA); Pratt Gallery at the Center on Contemporary Art. Their work has been included in group exhibitions at Allentown Art Museum (PA); Bellevue Arts Museum (WA); Coos Art Museum (OR); Museum of American Glass (Millville, NJ); Museum of Glass (Tacoma, WA); Muskegon Museum of Art (MI); Tacoma Art Museum (WA); Racine Art Museum (WI).
Their work is in the permanent collections of the Bocan Raton Museum of Art (FL); Flint Art Museum (MI); Henry Ford Museum (Dearborn, MI); Lowe Museum of Art (Miami, FL); Mobile Museum of Art (AL); Museum of American Glass (Millville, NJ); Museum of Glass (Tacoma, WA); National Liberty Museum (Philadelphia, PA); New Bedford Museum of Glass (MA); Racine Art Museum (WI); Tacoma Art Museum (WA); Imagine Museum (Saint Petersburg, FL).
