Miriam Carpenter: Artist, Researcher, and Designer
At 30 years old, Miriam Carpenter has already built quite a resume. After graduating from RISD in 2006, she designed furniture alongside Mira Nakashima for seven years. In 2014, she was awarded the Windgate ITE Residency sponsored by the Center for Art in Wood. The year following, she lived, worked and studied with furniture makers, sculptors, scholars and environmental stewards in Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand.
And now she has her first solo exhibition, Physical Poems of Romance. Her work is on display at the Aughinbaugh Gallery, Messiah College, Mechanicsburg, PA, through November 20, 2015.
