Karen S. Montgomery: A Sculptural Retrospective

Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at 10:00 am - Saturday, April 14, 2018 at 5:00 pm

On exhibit March 28 through April 28

Karen S. Montgomery’s sculptures are made in marble, bronze, wood, soapstone, and other metals.  Her work is primarily figurative, but often includes abstracted elements.  She draws inspiration from people and places from her personal history, as well as from snakes, winged figures, or other mythological and art historical elements.

Much of her sculptural process is reductive, where portions of material are carved or chipped away to reveal a new form. This exhibit will be a retrospective of Karen’s practice as an artist.

Montgomery is a sculptor and former state delegate and senator for District 14 of Montgomery County. She studied art and received a Master of Fine Art degree from George Washington University. She spent the early part of her career teaching art and directing gallery spaces in the DC region. Later, she served in the Maryland political sphere from 2003 – 2016.
