Liz Sweibel Art

LIZ SWEIBEL

Liz Sweibel is a multidisciplinary artist working in drawing, sculpture, installation, and digital photography and video. Her spare, personal language of abstraction transforms ordinary materials into statements about connectedness and responsibility: every action has an impact, the effects persist in space and over time, and we are accountable. Sweibel has participated in solo, two-person, and group exhibits in New York, Massachusetts, Maine, Connecticut, Michigan, and Tennessee since 1998. In 2016, Sweibel’s work was in the group shows Lightly Structured at Sculpture Space NYC, Precarious Constructs at the Venus Knitting Art Space in Brooklyn, and Appropriation and Such at 337 Project Space in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Her work is in The Drawing Center’s Viewing Program and has been presented in several online venues, including cover art for the spring 2017 issue of Waxwing literary journal. Sweibel’s work has been recognized and financially supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Vermont Studio Center, Maine College of Art, NURTUREart, and Albert Murray Educational Fund. Art New England, the Boston Globe, Bushwick Daily, and other publications online and off have written of her work and exhibits. Sweibel received her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and her MFA from Maine College of Art. She also holds a BA in English and an MA in Counseling. She lives and works in Brooklyn.
