Amy Cutler: Falk Visiting Artist

  • Sep 18, 2010 – Dec 12, 2010
  • The Louise D. and Herbert S. Falk, Sr. Gallery

This exhibition includes a selection of gouache paintings and graphite drawings by New York based artist Amy Cutler. Cutler culls her imagery—populated by images of women in the midst of peculiar activities—from a wide range of sources, including her own memory, fairy tales, medieval manuscripts, and Nordic folklore. Her exhibition at the Weatherspoon will focus on the artist’s investigations of physical transformation and disembodiment, as well as her depictions of intricately patterned textiles.

Amy Cutler (b. 1974, Poughkeepsie, NY) received her BFA from The Cooper Union School of Art, New York. She has had solo exhibitions at the Indianapolis Museum of Art; the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City; the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia. Her work is included in the collections of the Hammer Museum at UCLA; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; and Weatherspoon Art Museum.

As the Fall 2010 Falk Visiting Artist at the Weatherspoon and the Art Department at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Cutler will participate in MFA graduate student critiques and present a gallery talk and public lecture.
