MacMurray artist to exhibit near Pittsburgh
Koffel has three works in juried show on 'shrines.'
JACKSONVILLE, IL – Khara Koffel, MacMurray associate professor of art, will have three sculptures on exhibit this month in the juried show, “Small Shrines,” in Sewickley, PA.
The pieces are: “the more portable version of mr. roger m. koffel” (pictured), “the inescapable inevitable,” and “when everything is not enough.”
Her artwork will be exhibited April 5-27 at the Sweetwater Center for the Arts in Sewickley, along with works by other artists selected for the show by Pittsburgh artists Natalie Grandinetti and Staci Offutt. An artist reception will be held 6-9 p.m. April 26. (Click here for more information on the exhibit and the Sweetwater Center).
Koffel has exhibited her work widely in the United States, with one-person exhibitions or pieces accepted in juried shows in Chicago, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Maryland, Alabama and California. Her sculptures are often highly personal and reflect on her relations with friends and family.
In 2000, she received her bachelor's in Studio Arts and Art History from Juniata College in Huntingdon, PA, and, in 2003, an MFA in sculpture and photography from the University of Alabama. See her Web site here.
