Stetsonís mixed media prints are characterized by transformation. Unlikely elements combine into new and hybrid entities. She works with a broad range of techniques and media, from mixed media works on paper to large-scale installations. She has taught art for many years to all ages of students and now teaches art studio classes and art education at Ithaca College.
Born in Chicago, Illinois, Ms. Stetson lived in Duluth, Minnesota, for twenty years before moving to Ithaca where she has converted a barn into her studio. She is known for her three commissioned public sculptures in Duluth, including The Clayton Jackson McGhie Memorial, the first large scale memorial for victims of a lynching in the United States. This park features two cast concrete walls with incised quotations and bronze figures, a curved walkway and landscaping.
The Gallery at FOUND is an intimate art space located within FOUND in Ithaca, the areaís newest antique and vintage marketplace. The gallery showcases works of local artists who utilize found imagery, found objects or employ an up-cycling philosophy in their work. FOUND will remain open during the artistís reception. Come browse through 7,000 square feet of great finds!
