B.A. D’Alessandro has created sculptures in a variety of materials, but has been concentrating on steel for the last twelve years. Steel lends itself well to straight lines, angles and curves; the influence of geometric shapes is

apparent in her sculptures. Taking “pre-formed” stock pieces of steel, the artist arranges and organizes them to create strong, balanced structures. Painting them black gives each its own elegance.

 

B.A studied welding techniques at Silvermine Art Center, New Canaan with David Boyajian and followed him to his own studio at The Sculpture Barn in New Fairfield. Presently, she is working with Bob Perucci at Silvermine.Born in the Bronx and raised in Hartsdale, B.A. resides in White Plains, New York. She attended two Westchester County colleges, receiving an Associate of Arts degree at Briarcliff College and a Bachelor of Arts degree with Honors in Studio Art with an emphasis in sculpture at Marymount College.

 

An award-winning sculptor exhibiting throughout Westchester and Fairfield counties, (The Katonah Museum of Art, The Carriage Barn, The Flinn Gallery and The Sculpture Barn), she has been a member of the Mamaroneck Artists’ Guild for four years and is currently a Board Member of the New Rochelle Art Association. Other organizations include the Greenwich Art Society, the Art Society of Old Greenwich, and the New Canaan Society for the Arts.
