Michele Brody

Michele Brody

Michele Brody has been working with BRAC since 2010. She received her BA from Sarah Lawrence College in 1989 and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1994. Utilizing her strong background in the liberal arts, Michele creates site-specific, mixed-media installations and works of public art that are generated by the history, culture, environment, and architecture of a wide range of exhibition spaces. While living and working in such places as France, Costa Rica, California, the Midwest, Germany, and her home of New York, her art career has developed into a process of working in collaboration with each new community as a means towards developing an interpretation of the sense of a place as an outsider looking in. Michele has recently had exhibitions of her work at The Bronx Museum of the Arts and the Julio Valdez Project Space in Harlem, and she also recently worked as as an artist in residence at the Wave Hill Winter Workspace.

Tammy Wofsey

Tammy Wofsey

Tammy Wofsey is a visual artist with a focus in printmaking and book arts. Her art works begin with a love for paper and the printmaking process. She established Plotzing Press, a publishing press and printmaking shop in the Mott Haven section of the South Bronx. The letter press type and etching presses she uses are an intrinsic partner for all of the art work she creates. The paper-based prints she makes are both visual and tactile, combining strong images based on natural forms with deep embossed surfaces. Her work is in libraries, museums and private collections. As an arts educator, she have designed and conducted many outside community-based printmaking workshops for children and adults. This is done with her transportable retrofitted laundry press. By being outside with trees and nature this activates the collaborative artmaking process for multi-generational individuals that want to learn about printmaking.
