A graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Art and Case Western Reserve University, Dolores Glover Kaufman began her career as a visual artist with a one woman show at the Women's City Club Gallery in Cleveland, Ohio. Her early works were large colorful abstracts but within a few years she became caught up in the excitement of photography and never looked back. In the late 1970's and l980's she showed her black & white photographs in group and juried shows, including the Cleveland Museum of Art's Juried May Shows. In 1980 she exhibited a collaborative series of images with another Cleveland photographer, entitled Parma Piece at the New Gallery of Contemporary Art. Later that year she was selected to be included in Photography For Collectors, from Adams to Winograd, also at the New Gallery of Contemporary Art, and in 1983 was included in Portfolio '83, a Juried Selection of Visual Artists in the Cleveland Area. Other exhibitions of note: Berg/Kaufman at the Atrium Gallery at The University of Akron in 1978, and another collaborative series,"Facing" was shown at the Photoworks Gallery, Boston, Mass. in 1979. That same year Dolores was also included in American Vision, New York University and The Butler Institute of American Art. During those years she earned her living teaching Art and Photography at both public and private schools. From 1982-1986 she was a Lecturer in Photography at Case Western Reserve University, and in 1987 left teaching to join another photographer, Bill Braden, in a commercial photography studio which later became Braden & Kaufman. In 1995 their studio made the decision to purchase a PowerMac system in order to gain more control over their images and Dolores taught herself digital imaging which eventually led to experiments in the use of digital technology in her personal work, currently featured on the MOCA.Virtual.Museum website, World Printmakers, and the Digital Art Guild (see links).
