SwimmingST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. — Sculptor and painter Ellen Steinfeld’s work is on exhibition at St. Bonaventure University’s Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts until Dec. 1.

Her exhibit, “Explorations,” features various pieces from her advanced repertoire of imagery and techniques, including abstracted, painted “plates,” sculpture and handmade paper pieces.

Steinfeld has had a long presence in Western New York, and through exhibitions, public installations and commissions, has become known throughout North America. She has received numerous large-scale public and private commissions including a monumental 18-foot steel sculpture for the atrium of Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo and a commission to design 16 large stained glass windows for Christ Church in Detroit.

Sculpture installations in public spaces, such as the Buffalo Niagara International Airport, have greeted thousands of residents and travelers. Selected by Absolut Vodka to represent New York state, she produced a design that reached a global market through prominent publications in a campaign that raised money for AIDS research. Works in various media have been selected and incorporated into public spaces including schools, hotels, hospitals, museums, airports, stadiums and corporate collections.

Steinfeld’s work has been exhibited in museums and galleries in more than 26 solo exhibitions and included in more than 90 group exhibitions in the United States and Canada. Her works are in many permanent collections across the country.

She has won many national awards as well as fellowships from New York state’s Community Arts Partnership and the New York State Council on the Arts. She has been a visiting artist, lecturer and teacher at several universities, and is the subject of two documentary films.

Quick Center galleries are open year round and are free of charge. Hours are 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from noon–4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information, go to www.sbu.edu/quickcenter.
