Josie Dellenbaugh


I received a BA in Fine Arts from Chatham University, Pittsburgh, PA in 1969, but only started modeling from life in 1976 at the John Atelier in Princeton NJ. I learned the technique of direct stone carving with hand tools at the Princeton Art Association in 1980. I continued my studies at Rutgers University Camden with a course in bronze foundry practice. In 2008, I expanded my stone repertoire at marble/Marble XX in Colorado where I learned to carve with power tools. I currently work out of my home studios in Glastonbury CT and Center Harbor NH.

My work has been part of many solo and juried exhibitions mainly in New England, mid Atlantic region, and the upper Midwest. One piece, a bust of a new born baby, was part of an exchange exhibition to Moscow, Russia. I have won numerous awards in various venues over the past 40 years. To list a few: CT Women Artists Association, various awards at Phillip Mill PA, the Liskin Award, the Isenberg Award, the DeBellis, & Richman Awards at the Salmagundi Club in NYC, and the Montana Memorial Award at the Hudson Valley Art Association in NY. In 2017, I was awarded the Gibbons Prize for excellence in sculpture by the New England Sculptors Association.

My work in is many private collections as well as Goodwin College in East Hartford CT, Planned Parenthood of Pennsylvania, St. Paul’s Church, Chatham NJ, and Christ Church, Raleigh NC.

From May through November of 2014 “Spirit Made Manifest”, my solo show of 8 large bronze figures and a fountain was exhibited in the gardens of the Passionist Retreat Center in West Hartford CT. I have been a participant in Sculpture walks in Meredith NH, Newburyport MA, Sioux Falls SD, Mankato and Hopkins MN, Eau Claire WS, and Castlegar BC.
