The Retrospective of Mireille Clapp 1/11/23 - 3/15/23

Mad River Valley Arts opens the New Year with a retrospective of the late artist Mireille Clapp, a Boston based and long standing resident of the Valley in Vermont.  Throughout her international career she created a diverse range of mixed media wall sculptures and freestanding abstract pieces of welded steels, copper, bronze, brass, and aluminum.  Often she played with the movement and tension between organic and geometric, order and disorder. Trained as a scientist in Canada and a PhD from M.I.T, she was the first female tenured professor of mechanical and industrial engineering at UMass Amherst. Her leadership in this regard has subsequently inspired women to become faculty in the inventive sciences. Her work can be found in numerous private and permanent collections including M.I.T, St. Botolph Club of Boston, INSA of Lyon, France to name a few along with L’Attitude Gallery of Boston who sells her work today.
