A. Bascove is a NYC-based collagist, painter, and printmaker. Born in Philadelphia, she received her B.A. from the Philadelphia College of Art. In Paris, living by the Seine, she started drawing bridges, an obsession that only intensified on her return to NYC. “From an early age I learned that the world only makes sense to me through art. My love of my City and fascination with science, architecture, and literature has always driven my explorations. I love to share that curiosity and exhilaration through my work.” She has lectured and arranged events with the Museum of the City of New York, the Arsenal in Central Park, the Central Park Conservancy, the Municipal Art Society, New York University’s Fales Library, and the Hudson River Museum. Three collections of her paintings have been published: Sustenance & Desire: A Food Lover’s Anthology of Sensuality and Humor, Where Books Fall Open: A Reader’s Anthology of Wit And Passion, and Stone and Steel: Paintings & Writings Celebrating the Bridges of New York City. Her political and literary work is in the Permanent Collection of the Norman Rockwell Museum. As a culture writer, she has contributed to Arte Fuse, Stay Thirsty, and New York Arts Magazine. Chosen by the US State Department’s Art in Embassies Cultural Exchange, her work was exhibited at the American Embassies of Sofia, Bulgaria and Muscat, Oman from 2016-2019.
