A Conversation with Carly Glovinski

April 7, 2020



Rooted in observation and inspired by an interest in handicraft techniques and processes, Carly Glovinski makes paintings, sculpture, and works on paper that often teeter between representation and abstraction. Glovinski’s work often simulates or depicts everyday household objects and uses the geometric patterns and structures found in textiles as a springboard for exploring the abstract. Her practice is informed by the resourceful attitudes associated with the domestic craft tradition as well as a reverence for nature and the great outdoors.
Glovinski received her BFA from Boston University in 2003 and is represented by Morgan Lehman Gallery in New York, NY. She has been awarded residencies at the Studios at MASS MoCA (North Adams, MA); Teton ArtLab (Jackson, WY); 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 (ME); Morgan Lehman Gallery; Indianapolis Contemporary; and Carroll and Sons (Boston, MA). Her work has been included in numerous group exhibitions including at the deCordova Museum and Sculpture Park (Lincoln, MA); the Center for Maine Contemporary Art; Boston Center for the Arts; Portland Museum of Art (ME); Museum of Contemporary Art (Jacksonville, FL); Utah Museum of Contemporary Art; and the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey. The artist lives and works in Rollinsford, NH.
