Sculpture students prepare to meet the demands of a discipline that is constantly reinventing itself. A comprehensive understanding of wood and metal fabrication, casting and mold making provide the foundation on which students build through experimentation, risk-taking and reinvention. Advanced students explore a multi-disciplinary approach to sculpture through research in an effort to articulate original thinking and evolve as contemporary visual makers.

Assistant Professor, Fine Arts

Heather Ramsdale earned an M.F.A. degree from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. She received an undergraduate degree in Studio Art from SUNY Cortland and studied at Goldsmiths College in London, UK. She is a visual artist whose work encompasses the intrigue of personal objects and interior spaces, often re-presenting recognizable things in an effort to generate a response that feels both familiar and new.
Ramsdale was granted nominations for a Terra Foundation for American Art Award and an Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award from ISC. Subsequently, she was the recipient of two Pollock-Krasner Foundation fellowships, both for residencies in upstate New York. She has been invited to talk at several colleges and universities. Recent shows include a solo exhibition at The Gallery at Delaware County Community College and Hyperintersection at Pageant Soloveev. Professor Ramsdale teaches all levels of sculpture courses and she lives in Philadelphia where her studio is located.
