Risa Glickman: "Retrospective"
Former visual arts faculty member Risa Glickman's Retrospective celebrates her painting, drawings, and sculptures from her long and distinguished career as an artist at Packer. Curated by Art Teacher Elizabeth Eagle.

Packer enriched me beyond words. I worked with an enormously talented group of colleagues and hundreds of eager students. The children, especially, have had quite an effect on my art and the way I approach it. Always inquisitive, sassy and creative they have given me the desire to make more art and to expand what I love to do. 

My work has continued to encompass the places I love, from the grit of the industrial areas of Brooklyn to the calming scenes of Maine and to my vacation and travels. I am influenced by my environment and my art has continued to evolve. Now teaching private lessons in my studio at home, I maintain the connection to the children I love and to the school that has made such a profound mark on my life.
