Marcie Miller Gross

Bio

Marcie Miller Gross has pursued her artistic and academic career in Kansas City since receiving her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 1990.  Her accumulative objects, installations and drawings evolve from elemental, abstract form.  Through an incremental means of building with pliable, collected utilitarian materials, she examines the visceral relationship of mass and void, of physicality and weight, and the extraordinary within the ordinary.

Her work has been exhibited extensively including: Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen, Cranbrook Art Museum, National Museum of Women in the Arts/Epsten Gallery, Dolphin, Byron Cohen Gallery, and Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art.  She has received honors including: Charlotte Street Foundation Fellowship, National Endowment for the Arts, Arts KCFund Inspiration Grant, Studios Inc. Residency.  Her work has been reviewed in numerous publications including:  Art in America, Outpost Journal, Sculpture, Art Papers, Review, Kansas City Star, and Politiken, Copenhagen, and is held in collections including American Institute of Architects/Kansas City, Daum Museum of Contemporary Art, Andrews McMeel Universal Publishing, Missouri Bank, Helix Architecture & Design, National Center for Drug Free Sport, and private collections in New York City, Seattle, Los Angeles, Detroit, and Kansas City.
