Arlene Love is an award-winning pioneer in resin sculpture and accomplished painter and photographer with numerous public art installations across Philadelphia. For forty years, Love focused on sculpture, with solo shows from New York to California creating feminist work in leather, bronze, and resin. Her work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art (NY), the Boston Museum of Art, the Sculpture Center (NYC), and the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Cornell University. Love’s sculpture is in the collections of The Philadelphia Museum of Art, the James A Michener Museum, the University of Scranton, and Franklin & Marshall College. Love’s focus later moved to drawing during the dozen years she and her husband lived in a small mountain village near the city of Oaxaca, Mexico. Her drawings, etchings, and encaustics were exhibited in Oaxaca galleries. While in Mexico, she also worked in a print taller and created a portfolio of etchings, which is in the Linda Lee Alter collection at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Meanwhile, Love began taking photographs in her Mexican village and in neighboring markets – street photography and candid portraits became her sole passion and continued when she returned to the U.S. Her photograph Old Lee is in the collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Love has had more than thirty solo shows of sculpture, drawings, and photographs, and is the recipient of awards and grants from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, Leeway Foundation, Temple University, and the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation.
