Description: Worcester artist Kat O'Connor, winner of the Sally R. Bishop Best in Show Prize at the 2021 ArtsWorcester Biennial, will speak about works in her solo exhibition at WAM. The recipient of numerous grants and awards, including a Mass Cultural Council Fellowship, O'Connor has shown her work nationwide for nearly 30 years. Her paintings and drawings are included in many private and corporate collections. A frequent traveler to the American southwest and Greece, O'Connor's early work often depicted explorations of light and shape in scenes from her journeys. However, for over a decade now, water has been her primary muse and artistic focus. In her recent body of work, which includes the Biennial winner, "Dreaming of Snell's Window," the artist explores the world above and below the surface of swimming pools. Join us for this lecture to learn more about Kat O'Connor's work, her inspiration, and processes.
