Ellen Rebarber – “Moonlight Solitude” fused glass with various colors

Ellen is a sculptor, working with a variety of materials, including metal, wood, stone, cement, plaster, clay, glass and most recently acrylite. She welds, solders, enjoys making clay raku sculpture and loves to design fused glass jewelry and platters. Ellen is a risk taker reaching as far as she can, so to create beautiful objects that are pleasing to her and to others through sharing and exhibiting her work. Throughout her adult life, Ellen’s eagerness to learn inspired her to continue her art education so to enhance her development as an artist. She studied under George Segal, the sculptor, who made a profound impression on her and influenced her work. There, she learned about form, texture, composition, painting, drawing, art and music. “He really taught me how to see and comprehend our surroundings, for which I am grateful.” After retirement from teaching in Highland Park, Ellen enrolled in sculpture classes at Middlesex County College as well as Mason Gross School of Visual Arts at Rutgers University. She also studied with Rudy Serra, who was very inspirational and encouraging to her. Ellen works diligently in her home studio where she spends much of her time. She recently completed a commission for an indoor water fountain for the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development in New Brunswick, NJ, and most recently is a participating artist in City Without Walls 2013 Metro 30 traveling exhibition. Ellen has works in private collections throughout the metropolitan area and is available for commissions. For more information about Ellen visit: http://ellenrebarber.wordpress.com
