Mary Admasian is a multidisciplinary artist who explores how raw forms, layered spaces, and abstract perception can symbolize the psychological tension between our outer and inner lives. As she states, “By transforming common and found materials into conceptually stimulating images, I want my work to create a narrative that provokes insight, thought, and social awareness in the viewer."
Admasian is the recipient of a 2016-17 grant from the Vermont Arts Endowment Fund of the Vermont Community Foundation for her sculpture “Weighted Tears” that is to be featured in an upcoming June 2017 exhibit at the Brattleboro Museum. Her work has been exhibited nationally and in the collections of colleges, institutions, and prominent art collectors. Admasian has received two fellowships to the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont, and she has also created site-specific work and installations in collaboration with other artists, filmmakers, musicians, and writers.
A native of Detroit, Michigan, Admasian has lived in Vermont most of her adult life. She earned a BFA from Colby-Sawyer College with honors in painting and has worked as an artist, curator, marketing and brand communications consultant, and creative director for the visual and performing arts.
Admasian’s disciplines include painting, installation, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, and mixed media.
