Architectural abstraction: coasters, greeting cards, prints.

About the Artist

Hannah Gittleman, a woodshop teacher to K-8 students by day, is a multidisciplinary artist, holding a design degree from Harvard University and an MFA in furniture making from the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth.
In graduate school and for years after, Hannah focused primarily on the three-dimensional, creating works that brought up questions about the functionality of objects in our everyday life. These were sculptures about furniture.
In recent years, Hannah has begun to explore two-dimensional art, where her efforts have consistently landed on details and abstract representations of architectural and other human-made artifacts. In this year’s WMOS she brings these two-dimensional images to “useful” objects, such as drink coasters and greeting cards.
