Rebecca Ripple


This show negotiates the artist's experience of her suburban Long Island childhood and her strict Catholic upbringing. The work examines the forces of these two opposing value systems and the desires constructed within them.

Rebecca Ripple received her MFA in Sculpture from Yale University in 1995.  Her work has been exhibited at the Brewery Project in Los Angles, Rosamund Felsen Gallery in Santa Monica, and Ludwig Drum Factory in Chicago, among others.  Her work has been reviewed in the LA Weekly, ArtScence, the Chicago Tribune, and American Craft.  Ripple attended the prestigious Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture where she received a full scholarship, and was awarded a Fellowship and Artist Residency at the Bemis Foundation in Omaha. She is currently a faculty member at California State University, Northridge.
