May 2 – June 28, 2018 | Geoffrey A. Wolpert Gallery
The Chair Project is an ongoing series by artist Kathleen Hancock which displays miniature furniture created in a sixth scale environment. Using an autobiographical lens, Hancock’s work addresses notions of the intimate and domestic through personal experiences. The uncanny familiarity of these objects reminds us of the homes we grew up in, the things that quietly bear witness to our lives.
Kathleen Hancock is an artist, educator, curator/director, and volunteer. She was born in Indiana, and grew up in south central Kentucky. She received a BFA in Printmaking from Western Kentucky University, Bowling Green, KY and holds an MFA in Printmaking from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY. She is the director of the Grimshaw-Gudewicz Art Gallery at Bristol Community College in Fall River, Massachusetts.
While living in New York, she had the opportunity to work with Brand X Editions. As a printer’s assistant she honed the skills that would later provide the opportunity to teach water-based screen printing courses at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island. She has also taught drawing and book arts courses at the Community College of Rhode Island, Rhode Island School of Design, and at Bristol Community College.
Before coming to the Grimshaw-Gudewicz Art Gallery in 2000, she was exhibit coordinator and assistant director of the Bristol Art Museum, an all volunteer organization.
Please join us for a closing reception on Thursday, June 28th from 5-7pm.
