Beth Lipman is known for her works in glass that generally pay homage to still-life paintings from the 17th to the 20th centuries. Continuing her exploration of material culture as a means to understand desire and consumption, she investigated and recreated Victorian decorative arts during her 2011 Studio residency, juxtaposing common 19th-century domestic objects with their contemporary counterparts.
Lipman received her B.F.A. from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, in 1994. She has received awards from the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts/NEA and the Brooklyn Arts Council/DCA. Lipman’s work has been the focus of solo exhibitions at galleries and museums across the United States, including the Brooklyn Museum of Art and The Corning Museum of Glass, and part of group exhibitions across the world.
