( bio / statement / work )

Gail Hoffman was born in Hempstead, New York. She received a BA with honors in fine arts from Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA, and an MFA in printmaking from Indiana University. She teaches part-time in the School of Art and Design at Syracuse University and casts her bronze work at the foundry in the university’s sculpture facility. Her first solo show was at the Chuck Levitan Gallery in Soho in 1998. She has shown at the Denise Bibro Gallery in Chelsea and has been a national affiliate member of SOHO20 Chelsea Gallery since 2001. She shows regionally and nationally, most recently winning the first prize award in the Texas National 2008. She is a recipient of a 2008-1010 Enitiative grant given to SU by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation for a collaborative community project between Syracuse University design students and the Syracuse city high schools. She is currently working on the Urban Video Project, another collaborative community/university initiative that involves projecting large-scale images and videos onto two downtown Syracuse buildings. These projections follow the theme of her own time-based work by making connections with the city’s past, present and future.
