Welcome Von Allen

Von Allen moved back to Edinboro after retiring from BYU- we are pleased to have her as a sabbatical replacement for Lee Rexrode this semester. Here's a short bio from the Utah Artists Project.

"Von Allen was born in Union City, Pennsylvania in 1950. She is a faculty member at Brigham Young University and an artist known for her organically abstract sculpture.  She lives in Salt Lake City, Utah. 
Allen studied at Edinboro State College in Edinboro, Pennsylvania (BA, 1973; MA, 1976); she later earned an MFA in ceramics at Syracuse University in New York (1984).  She joined the faculty at BYU in 1984 as associate professor and head of the ceramics program.  Her large vertical ceramic sculptures which previously consisted of nonrepresentational images have evolved to include elements of an anatomical form."
