Ellery Ekleberry is an interdisciplinary artist currently based in Massachusetts with a focus on using tactile mediums empathetically. Her work revolves around an exploration of hard (ceramic, steel, wood) and soft (clay, stuffed, upholstered) materials with an interest in studying the interactions between them. Displaying her work primarily as installations full of vivid colors and bright patterns, Ekleberry responds to physical space and creates other-worldly atmospheres inspired by a desire to understand empathy. Ekleberry received her BFA in Studio Art from Albion College in 2018 and a Post-Bac Certificate in Ceramics from the University of Colorado-Boulder in 2020. She presently has works on display in Boulder, CO, Ann Arbor, MI and Duxbury, MA.
