Bill Feinberg

Bill Feinberg embarked on a career as a sculptor in 2001, after nearly 35 years as a professor of sociology at the University of Cincinnati. He studied with Walter Driesbach and continues to work with Christopher Daniel, sculpting in stone, wood, steel, and plaster, sometimes combining two or more of these media.

His abstract-representational style shows the influences of Cycladic and Inuit sculptors as well as more recent masters such as Brancusi, Zorach, and Driesbach.

Bill has had shows at the Kennedy Heights Arts Center and at the Oxford (OH) Community Arts Center, and he has also shown at the Golden Ticket and Wellness Community shows, Massive: Intrinsic show, and the Flower Garden Gallery in Cincinnati, among others. His first steel sculpture — “Nest” — won an honorable mention at the Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum outdoor sculpture show in 2007. Bill has a steel and plaster piece — “Oops!” — in the Landfillart collection and included in the show “Second Time Around” at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester, Virginia. His work is represented in several private collections around the country and in the Church of the Nativity in Cincinnati. A steel piece, “Food Chain,” done with Christopher Daniel, is on display outdoors at the Deupree House in Cincinnati.

Bill is a member of the 5300 Group of artists and sculptors who have shown their work in several venues in the Cincinnati area.

He lives in Cincinnati with the mobile and wire artist Karen Feinberg, his main muse. He shares Studio 500B at the Pendleton Arts Center, Cincinnati, with five excellent sculptors who also help improve his work.
