Shandra McLane is 2012 Remarkable Woman

May 8th, 2012 by Elizabeth

PLYMOUTH, N.H. — Shandra McLane, adjunct faculty in the Department of Art at Plymouth State University has been named a 2012 Remarkable Woman by New Hampshire Magazine.

The magazine describes the 2012 Remarkable Women as artistic alchemists who possess vision and drive that has advanced their craft disciplines to new levels of technique and imagination. For more than a decade, New Hampshire Magazine has recognized remarkable women of New Hampshire in a variety of walks of life. The editors picked craft as the theme this year because of the important role that hand crafts have played in the New Hampshire history as an economic, social and cultural force according to editor Rick Broussard.

McLane studied drawing and printmaking at the University of Southern California and earned an M.Ed. at Plymouth State University, but was always fascinated by glass. She took advantage of an opportunity to study at the Pilchuck School of Glass, but developed her own technique. “I see fused glass as a fantastically versatile reflective and transmissive canvas for color and form,” she says.

At a breakfast for the honorees McLane said it was a proud moment when she showed the article to her PSU students, as an indication of what they can do as artists.
