I absolutely love the work of artist Carly Glovinski. From her use of color to her exploration of pattern, Carly's work plays with the idea of the decorative and utilitarian. Her work investigates patterns and organizing systems found in everyday life with reverence for the history and behaviors contained in objects and places.
In this episode, we discuss living an authentic life and following our passions, from our work in the studio to DIY projects and restoring old homes.
Carly received her BFA in painting from Boston University in 2003 and her work is represented by Morgan Lehman Gallery, NYC. Recent solo exhibitions include Currents 8: Carly Glovinski at the Colby Museum of Art, Waterville, Maine, How to Build a Fire at Morgan Lehman Gallery, NYC, Tread Lightly at iMOCA, Indianapolis, and Scout Land at Carroll and Sons, Boston, MA.
Her work has been exhibited at numerous institutions including the deCordova Museum and
Sculpture Park, Lincoln, MA, Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Rockland, Portland Museum of Art, Portland, ME, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Jacksonville,FL, The Visual Art Center of New Jersey, the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, and Boston Center for the Arts.
