Mary Coss is an interdisciplinary sculptor and installation artist whose artwork is metaphorical, providing commentary on the human condition. She received an MFA in Experimental Studios from Syracuse University, igniting a life-long love for bringing social relevance to visual art. Coss has received Grants from NEA, Ford and Puffin Foundations, Artist Trust, 4Culture and Seattle OAC. Her exhibitions include galleries, museums, and sculpture parks, with community and public art found throughout the Northwest. Travel is integral to her practice, and includes projects at Candyland Arts in Stockholm, Turkey and Guatemala. Upcoming residencies in Ireland will further her research on topics of water and gender. She is a co founder of METHOD Gallery and inaugural Visual Arts Director of Borealis: A Festival of Light in Seattle.
