Kristen T. Woodward: Hunter-Gatherer
March 24 through April 26
Reading, Pa. – The Freedman Gallery at Albright College will host a solo exhibition, Kristen T. Woodward: Hunter-Gatherer, on view in the Main Gallery, March 24 to April 26.
A professor of art at Albright, Woodward teaches painting and printmaking, and interdisciplinary courses on Latin American graphic art, and gender and the arts. The exhibition will feature work from her fall 2013 sabbatical.
Portions of the work in this exhibition have been shown before, but not all together in one installation. Brought together for the first time, Hunter-Gatherer explores intuitive and symbolic predator-prey relationships. Throughout the exhibit, found objects and decoys are used alongside more traditional encaustic paintings, as animals, fruits and figures intermingle with ancient weapons and technological wonders. A full-color catalogue will accompany the exhibition.
Woodward has a bachelor of fine arts degree in printmaking from Syracuse University and a master’s in fine arts degree in studio art (1993) from Clemson University. Her mixed-media drawings combine painting and printmaking and often utilize found collage materials.
Woodward’s work is included in numerous permanent collections, including the Federal Reserve Bank, Sexton Industries, the Shearwater Corporation, the Cottonlandia Museum, Wachovia Bank, Adams State College, Lockhaven University, Cooper University Hospital, and the Center for the Study of Political Graphics of Los Angeles. Woodward is also the resident curator for www.artists2artists.net, a social network for artists to exhibit their work.
