Kate Teale: The Housed

January 26, 2016 - April 10, 2016

Opening Reception:
February 5, 6-8pm

Kate TealLondon-born, New York City-based artist Kate Teale’s makes atmospheric paintings and large-scale drawings of waves, bedsheets, and windows. She works in oil, watercolor and graphite to create images that float between figuration and abstraction. Whether with smaller works on canvas or large-scale site-specific drawings, one of which she'll create in the gallery, she mines imagery that swings from the private to public, specific to universal but all loaded with meaning.

Teale was educated at Oxford University and City and Guilds of London Art School before receiving her MFA from Hunter College/CUNY. Her first solo show in NYC was at Spring Gallery in 1996 and she’s since shown at AIR Gallery, Monya Rowe Gallery, Jim Kempner Fine Art, Kristen Frederickson Contemporary Art, the Richmond Center for the Visual Arts at Western Michigan University, and Hampden Gallery at UMass, Amherst among other places. She’s the recipient of a Painters and Sculptors Grant from the Joan Mitchell Foundation and a NYFA Fellow. She’s also a writer, curator and founder of the Big&Small/Casual Gallery in Long Island City.

"The Housed" travels to Opalka Gallery from Western Michigan's University's Richmond Center for Visual Arts where it was curated by Don Desmett.
