Elizabeth Barick Fall (BFA 1988)
Elizabeth Barick Fall Liz has a BFA from The University of Michigan and MFA in Metalsmithing from Cranbrook Academy of Art. After launching and running Fall Metalworks, a small one of a kind art metal home and garden accessories business from 1994-2000, she has spent her time since dedicated to family life, occasional part time teaching, volunteering and various other pursuits. In 2012, she opened trustArt studios in Ann Arbor, with 9 studios and a small gallery, to develop a community space for local artists to work and exhibit. She is currently exploring a mixed media approach to combine images, objects, materials and ideas that she has been collecting and considering for many years; unifying and arranging these disparate things to create work that evokes and expresses her emotional, aesthetic perspective, approach and response to the different environments in which she spends time.
This work is featured as part of Future Former: An Exhibition of Alumni Work. This exhibition honors the creative work and careers of all Stamps School alumni, creates an aspirational connection between generations of U-M artists and designers and current Stamps students, and inspires reflection during the university's Bicentennial year.
