Since moving out to Oakland, I have been doing arts consulting work with some really great local artists. On Thursday, a solo exhibit for one of those artists opens along with the premier of the exhibit catalog, which I designed!
You’ve seen her murals around campus — now she’s rediscovered in a new book
Published in the Cornell Chronicle
By Gwen Glazer
Jillian Piccirilli ’08 formed a close relationship with a woman she’ll never meet: Alison Mason Kingsbury, an accomplished artist, dedicated Ithacan and wife of Cornell historian and professor Morris Bishop.
Alison Jolly, the artist’s daughter, began working with Piccirilli in 2008 to create a complete catalog of her mother’s work. The catalog grew into a book, “The Art and Life of Alison Mason Kingsbury,” published in 2010 by Cornell University Library.
To celebrate the publication of The Art & Life of Alison Mason Kingsbury by Jillian Piccirilli, Cornell Library’s Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections will host a one-day exhibition of the artist’s collection.
