Ava Blitz is a visual artist who currently divides her time between studio work in sculpture, works on paper, photography, and public art. In her work, Ava focuses on the dualities of the physical, elemental state of nature, and the spiritual, metaphoric, and contemplative nature. Her work is symbolic of the cycles of life, of the elements, and of the forces of growth, change, and evolution. It alludes to the passage of time, petrified in stone or concrete. Ava Blitz served on an International Sculpture Symposium panel in Japan, and has lectured on public art for the American Institute of Architects, the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation, and the Michener Art Museum. She has been the recipient of numerous honors, awards, and fellowships, including grants from the Japan Foundation, the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the Leeway Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, and the Jerome Foundation. From 1986 to 1998 she taught at Bryn Mawr College, where she directed the fine art department.
