Madeline Rile Smith
Madeline Rile Smith uses glass as a performative vehicle to consider notions of intimacy, compromise, and embodiment. Informed by her background in music, she creates objects and videos that explore connection and isolation. Madeline’s work has been exhibited in venues throughout the US and internationally, including the Museum of Arts and Design, Czong Institute for Contemporary Art, and the Toyama Glass Art Museum. She earned MFA at Rochester Institute of Technology and her BFA from Tyler School of Art. A passionate educator, she has instructed throughout the East Coast, including Rochester Institute of Technology, UrbanGlass and The Crefeld School. Madeline is currently an adjunct professor of glass art at Salem Community College and Tyler School of Art.
