Janet Neuwalder, a sculptor and installation artist specializing in clay and ceramic processes, has focused recently on large-scale sculptural wall installations. Works are assembled from hundreds of fragments floating off the wall's surface, creating a provocative and visually active topography. The assemblages express movement, playfulness and a sense of history and time.
Neuwalder received her BFA from Kansas City Art Institute in Kansas City, Missouri and a Master of Fine Art from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Neuwalder has been exhibiting her work nationally since 1984. She has taught at numerous universities and colleges throughout the United States. She currently teaches Ceramics at Cal Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, California.
