Zaria Forman’s enthusiasm for drawing began during her childhood when she and her family traveled to some of the world’s most remote landscapes, the subject of her mother’s fine art photography.
A cum laude graduate in Studio Arts from Skidmore College, Zaria Forman has exhibited extensively at galleries and venues throughout the United States and overseas.
Zaria recently completed a series of drawings that will be the set design for the classic ballet “Giselle”, premiering this October at the Grand Theatre of Geneva, Switzerland.
In August 2012 she will lead Chasing the Light, an art expedition in Greenland, re-tracing the 1869 journey of American painter William Bradford and artistically documenting the rapidly changing landscape
The expedition is dedicated to Zaria’s mother who was inspired by Bradford’s journey.
