Bio

A native of Philadelphia, PA, Constance McBride relocated to the Southwest in 2002 and for 16 years, observations of the desert made a transformative impact on her professional practice as a research-based visual artist. Her work has been supported by grants from the Arizona Commission on the Arts and the Phoenix Art Museum's Contemporary Forum. It has been exhibited at Udinotti Museum of Figurative Art, Scottsdale (AZ), Las Cruces (NM) Museum of Art, and San Angelo (TX) Museum of Art. Notably, it was exhibited at Phoenix Art Museum from June through September 2017. Group gallery exhibitions include, A Show of Heads in Hudson, NY, The Clay Studio National in Philadelphia, PA, and Beyond the Brickyard at the Archie Bray Foundation for Ceramic Arts in Helena, MT. McBride's work has been featured in various online and print publications including Snax Magazine, the international platform Ceramics Now, Yahoo News, Visual Art Source, Phoenix Magazine, Phoenix New Times, and the instructional publication Paperclay Art and Practice by Rosette Gault. Her work resides in private and public collections around the USA. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Arcadia University, Glenside, PA.  McBride serves as a juror for exhibitions and as a panelist for cultural conferences. She has been a board member of three non-profit arts organizations and is a past president of Eye Lounge, a contemporary art space and artist collective in downtown Phoenix. She has taught ceramic classes and facilitates workshops at various art centers including The Art Alliance in West Zhengzhou, China while with World Academy for the Future of Women's Give Voice to Women Through the Arts program where she was a resident artist/facilitator at Sias University in Xinzheng.  Now living and working near Philadelphia again, her current professional affiliations include Women's Caucus for Art; Philly Chapter and Philadelphia Sculptors.
