Bio

Leslie Nobler, a Professor of Art, works in digital, mixed media, fiber, and book arts. She holds a BFA from University of Michigan School of Art (Ann Arbor), MA in Computer Graphics from New York Institute of Technology and MFA in Interdisciplinary Art from City University of New York – Hunter College. My more recent installations reinvent sacred and mystical artifacts, employing alternative digital printmaking. Her current work involves portraits of early 20th Century marginalized people who showed resilience and even salvation through their creativity. The subtext of her work strives to bring issues such as ethnophobia, immigration, intolerance, escape and refuge to light. She received Artist’s Grants from the Surface Design Association and Puffin Foundation, and was invited to do a specially awarded project at the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland in 2022. Prof. Nobler’s exhibits include the New York Visual Arts Museum’s Digital Salons, New Jersey State Museum, Noyes and Montclair Art Museums (NJ), Old Main Art Museum (AZ), Athenaeum Museum (PA), Kemper Museum of Art (MO), Afrigraphics of Pretoria, Eurographics in Barcelona, the Nanjing Art Institute, and Symposia on Digital Art in Bangkok and London. She has recently published her article, African Pattern, Identity, and Relevance in Contemporary Surface Design, in The International Journal of Design in Society. Her work is in artists’ book collections of universities and museums and has been featured in the New York Times, New Jersey Star-Ledger, Surface Design Journal, Leonardo, Textiles: The Art of Mankind, the Review/Midwest, and her recent portrait project was featured in New Jersey Jewish News and WomensWork.art.
