Gretchen Bierbaum, BA, MA - Hudson, Ohio studied landscape painting
at Mexico City College, ancient Islamic art in Iran at Pahlavi University
and completed her degrees at Kent State University, Kent, Ohio. She is
listed in Who's Who of American Artists and of American Women. Her unique
approach to collage combines scenes of a city with local newspaper clippings.
Two of her collage city scenes were created for bicentennial celebrations
and are included in time capsules. Another collage was commissioned by
the US Navy and hangs in the Commander's dining room in a nuclear submarine.
Some are politically inspired like the collage about the US invasion of
Panama which the former President of Panama has in his collection. She
is the founder of the National Collage Society, Inc., a nonprofit art foundation.
