CuratoRial experience:

2016

  •  Co-curator, everything i never told you; a secret to beautiful to keep, MCLA Gallery 51, North Adams, MA   An interdisciplinary exhibition of new work exploring the intersectionalities common to the artistic practices of two artists developed over an almost 15 year long friendship. Exploring themes of vulnerability, emotional aesthetic, metaphor, absurdist humor, and personal history. Including work in a variety of media including - installation, drawing, painting,printmaking and mixed media work.
  • Polyvalent Spaces - Donna Cleary and Kathline Carr, exPRESS Gallery, North Adams, MA                       The dialectical relationship between art and inhabited space, between embodied and embedded knowledge, and the tension between the familiar and the strange are all prevalent in the work included in this exhibition. Polyvalent Spaces grounds this relational exploration into the place where it was created - North Adams, MA - but invites a multiplicity of associations as you weave together the threads of the exhibition.

2014 – present
