Artist Bio

My Dad was a playful gambler and my Mom a fabulous baker…how could I not become an artist? Having fun taking chances, and making things that are so much more than their ingredients.” This is how Barbara Korman describes her affinity and lifetime involvement with art. She has traveled to every continent in the world, from the National Parks in the United States to the Himalayas in Nepal, collecting regional art and making photographic notations of the land’s textures and formations. Korman’s award winning works have been exhibited in more than one hundred solo and group shows in leading museums and galleries, including The Neuberger Museum of Art, The Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, Grounds for Sculpture, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Katonah Museum of Art, and Tiffany and Company’s Fifth Avenue windows.

Today, her sculptures are included in public and private collections throughout the world, including the Neuberger Museum of Art, Phelps Memorial Hospital, Hebrew Home for the Aged, American Movie Classics, and Olivetti-Rome. A graduate of New York City’s High School of Music and Art, she earned her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Fine Arts at the New York State College of Ceramics, Alfred University. Korman has dedicated a large part of her life to education and the development of creative thinking. Named “StyleMaker” by the New York Times and listed in, Foremost Woman of the 20th Century and Who’s Who in America , she is a former Board President and current Program Director of the Katonah Museum Artists’ Association.
