Biography

Alex Gabriel Bernstein grew up in a creative environment with access to many American studio glass movement artists. His parents are two established glass artists, named William and Katherine Bernstein, and they raised him near the surroundings of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Western North Carolina. These aspects are essential for his upbringing as such a monumental artist.

Alex went on to study psychology at the University of North Carolina and worked at a children's psychiatric hospital before focusing on his artistic endeavors full time. He received his Master of Fine Arts from the Rochester Institute of Technology's School for American Crafts and went on to teach here. He taught at the Cleveland Institute of Art, the Penland School of Crafts, and The Studio at The Corning Museum of Glass.

Recently, Alex was the Department Head of Glass at the Worcester Center for Crafts in Massachusetts but decided to return to his hometown to set up a studio and focus on creating his own work full-time. Bernstein has mounted shows at Chappell Gallery in NYC; Hooks Epstein Gallery in Houston; Habatat Gallery in Royal Oak, MI; and the William Traver Gallery, Seattle. His works are included in numerous collections, such as the Corning Museum of Glass, the Glasmuseum Frauneau in Germany, the Mellon Financial Corporation, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the Palm Springs Art Museum.
