Carole Wellen is a painter and sculptor. Her work has appeared in art shows and galleries throughout New England, New York, New Jersey, and abroad. She was recently featured at The Target Gallery, the national exhibition space of the Torpedo Factory Art Center, in Alexandria, Virginia. The exhibit, “Molded Earth,” ran from December 13, 2007 through January 20, 2008. The show was a media specific juried exhibition focusing on the current trends in contemporary ceramics. The Torpedo Factory Art Center is one of the largest and most successful visual arts centers in the United States. Upon graduating from the Fashion Institute of Technology, Wellen studied fine arts at the Art Student’s League in New York where her style of painting developed from realism to super-realism to the abstract. In Connecticut, Wellen studied at the Bliefield Studio. There, she was inspired to work in clay and stone. Her sculptural textures and forms, focusing on simple fluid shapes, appeared at the Paint and Clay Exhibit in New Haven, Connecticut, and recently at the Korby Gallery in Cedar Grove, New Jersey, and the Sea Land Gallery in Wall Township, New Jersey. Carole Wellen’s abstract and figurative paintings and drawings combine concepts of space, form,and texture to achieve expression and movement. Early works appeared in a solo show at Panora’s Gallery in New York, and later in galleries from New England to New Jersey including the Heritage Gallery in Orange, Connecticut; Nassau County Ethical Culture Exhibit on Long Island; the Union Camp Exhibit in Wayne, New Jersey; Union Carbide Gallery Exhibit in New York City; Fairfield County Illustrator Exhibit at Sacred Heart University in Connecticut; Art on the Town – A Bridgeport Celebration in Connecticut; and the Carrington and DeSilva Gallery in New York City, among others. Wellen continues her work while experimenting with alternative mediums, including collage, concrete, and sand-paint. She currently resides in Toms River, New Jersey with her husband.
