NORTHAMPTON, Mass.-Eileen Cohen
Kane may have degrees in zoology and anatomy, but at heart she's
always been an artist. She began studying art as an avocation
in high school in Boston, but it wasn't until 1987, more than
a decade after obtaining her Ph.D. in anatomy from Harvard, that
she received her B.F.A. from Pacific Northwest College of Art
and began a full-time career as a professional artist.
Since then, she has displayed her work in major group shows both
nationally and internationally, as well as in numerous private
and public collections across the country.
Discussing her work, Kane said, "As a professional artist,
I focus mainly on the moving figure. As a former anatomist, I'm
intrigued by the beauty and vitality of the human form in action
and in interactions with others."
Kane, a 1967 graduate of Smith College and a 20-year resident
of Portland, Oregon, is exhibiting her drawings, paintings and
sculptures, now through Oct. 31, in the Smith College Alumnae
House Gallery, 33 Elm St., Northampton.
The exhibit is free and open to the public Monday through Friday,
8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. To view Kane's artwork online, visit http://www.eskart.net.
