"Charmaine Spencer's artwork is green in the making and greener in the message. Using nature's cast-offs and reconstituted items from consumer-discarders, Charmaine creates bold sculptural work with a subtle social message. She disassembles, reforms and transforms materials into large abstract sculpture and accumulative installation."
Using salvaged materials Charmaine Spencer creates bold accumulative works that reinvent concepts of value.
While attending the Cleveland Institute of Art Spencer was recipient of the William McVey Award and was one of two students selected to finish posthumously, the last sculpture of David E. Davis, the founder of the Sculpture Center.
In 2011 Spencer presented her work at PechaKucha Night, and was speaker for the Cleveland Institute of Art's Next program. She was the recipient of a 2010 Ingenuity Project Award, the 2009 Creative Workforce Fellowship, and The Sculpture Center 2008 Emerging Artist Award.
