Carole S. Eisner, Artist, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in sculpting and painting.
Having accrued more than four decades of professional experience as an artist, Ms. Eisner is a renowned sculptor and painter based in New York City and Connecticut. Ms. Eisner is distinguished for her work with scrap and recycled metal, creating elegant forms welded in steel. The ancient steel scraps she utilizes are loaded with history and are reconfigured into an abstract construction, which reflects her artistic vision and has become the foundation of her style. Prior to discovering her artistic flair, Ms. Eisner commenced her career as a fashion designer, specializing in dress design, for five years. Today, her work is showcased in private, public, and corporate collections, including a collection at the Guggenheim. Her art is represented by her daughter, Susan Ely.
Along with her popular audiences, Ms. Eisner’s sculptures have been exhibited in dozens of public parks, corporate plazas, cultural centers, museums, and waterfronts all along the northeast corridor, as well as in Belgium and France. Since the budding of her career in 1977, Ms. Eisner’s works have been featured in more than 40 group and solo shows throughout Illinois, New York, California, Connecticut, Florida, and Virginia. Further, she has been internationally featured in the United Kingdom and Japan. In addition to her exhibitions and collections, she has commissioned the stage design for Theater XII Off-Broadway, three Leonard Melfi plays and one Sam Shepard play, all in 1978. Ms. Eisner’s longevity as an international artist is unparalleled, and the highlight of her artistic career has been her collection displayed on her front lawn. She is overjoyed to see neighbors and onlookers happily view her work in her suburban dwelling, as she believes art should always be present in one’s life, not only in museums.
For her inimitable career success, Ms. Eisner has been the recipient of various awards and accolades, having most recently taken home the George Arents Award for Art from Syracuse University in 2013. From the Silvermine Arts Center, she was granted the 1980 Champion International Corporation Award for A Sculpture, as well as the Merchants Bank & Trust Company Award for Outdoor Sculpture and A Sculpture in 1978 and 1976, respectively. In 1978, Ms. Eisner was notably awarded the Rosenthal Award for Outdoor Sculpture. Additionally, in 1961, she was the recipient of the Mademoiselle Merit Award for signal achievement and fashion achievement and was also named among 10 outstanding young women in Mademoiselle Magazine in 1962.
Ms. Eisner graduated from Syracuse University with a Bachelor of Fine Art in 1958. Continuing her artistic education, she studied under Ethel Schwabacher in New York City in 1963 and with Marge Walzer in Westport, Connecticut from 1969 to 1978. Additionally, from 1976 to 1978, she conducted a postgraduate study at the International School of Photography. A member of the Silvermine Arts Center since 1974, Ms. Eisner enjoys running, trekking, and swimming in her spare time.
