Glen Kaufman, textile designer and professor of art emeritus, is an internationally known workshop teacher and lecturer, co-author of Design on Fabrics, and continues to write articles for several publications in the United States and Japan.  He has had many solo exhibitions in the U.S., Japan, and South Korea. His record of group shows is extensive, including venues in the U.S., Europe, Africa and Asia. His work is in private and permanent collections of museums across the US and in Kyoto.

Mr. Kaufman maintains a studio in Kyoto, Japan, where he spends part of each year. Much of the work presented in his lecture has been inspired by exposure to Japanese culture, including dance. After many years of creating individual works each with a specific focus, Kaufman became more concerned with a conceptual use of space- installation art. Although generally not site-specific, these works include multiple elements that are meant to convey a message. In addition to his own work, Kaufman will include images of installations by Japanese artists.
