Carly Glovinski | Biography

Back to Carly Glovinski | Work

Rooted in observation and fueled by a curiosity about the behavior of objects and handicraft processes, Carly Glovinski makes paintings, sculpture and works on paper that often teeter between representation and abstraction. Letting craft techniques like weaving inform her mark making, her work mimics everyday objects and highlights geometric pattern and structure found in textiles, while exploring the resourceful attitudes associated with domestic craft and rural communities that prioritize placemaking in concert with nature. She received her BFA from Boston University in 2003 and is represented by Morgan Lehman Gallery in New York. She has been awarded residencies at the Studios at MASS MoCA, North Adams, MA, Teton ArtLab, Jackson, Wyoming, and the Vermont Studio Center, and has received grants from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation, and the Blanche Colman Trust. She has had solo exhibitions at Colby Museum of Art, Maine; Morgan Lehman Gallery, New York; Indianapolis Contemporary; and Carroll and Sons, Boston. Her work has been included in numerous group exhibitions including at the deCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, Lincoln, MA, Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Boston Center for the Arts, Portland Museum of Art, Portland, ME, Museum of Contemporary Art, Jacksonville, FL, Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey.
