Virtual Studio Tour with artist Kate Gridley

Date: 02/06/2022
Time: 4:00 pm-5:00 pm

The Norfolk Library continues its series of virtual studio tours on Sunday, Feb. 6, at 4:00 p.m. featuring Kate Gridley. Known for her insights into human character, the quality of light in her work, and her painting technique, Kate maintains a studio in Middlebury, Vermont, where she has lived and painted full time since 1991. Her work is in numerous public and private collections. Kate’s installation “Passing Through: Portraits of Emerging Adults,” a set of 17 over life-size oil portraits paired with sound portraits, which former NPR correspondent and Norfolk’s own Anne Garrels helped record, continues to travel across the United States after its launch in 2014. She is currently at work on two installations: a multimedia portrait of musician and famed children’s television character Officer Clemmons entitled “The Shoulders on Which We Stand: a Portrait of Francois Clemmons,” partially underwritten by the Vermont Arts Council and The Vermont Community Foundation; and “Witness Marks: Anatomy of a Memory,” a multimedia installation in which she explores how we make memories, how we store them, and how we retrieve them. Kate is going to take us into her studio and show us paintings in process. She will be happy to answer any questions you have. Please register here for the Zoom link.
