Kim Waale of Manlius, one of six artists selected for the 6th Rochester Biennial, speaks on her work. Her talk is included in Gallery admission.
A longtime professor of art at Cazenovia College, Waale received her MFA in sculpture from Syracuse University. She has participated in invitationals and residencies in the US, Europe and South America and exhibited at museums including the Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse; Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center, Auburn; and Museum of Contemporary Art, Skopje, Macedonia. At MAG, she received two juror awards and one popular vote award at four Rochester-Finger Lakes Exhibitions.
Waale describes her room-sized installation for the Biennial as “whimsical fiction, a slippage between reality and artifice, made of dumb materials and yet, it’s a plastic sublime—a romantic natural hybrid.”
The Biennial Artist Series is underwritten by the Sandra G. Dreyfuss Education Endowment Fund.
