Shriver

Kathryn Shriver is a visual artist from Buffalo, New York, and holds a BA in Studio Arts from Wells College (Aurora, NY) and an MFA in Painting and Drawing from Concordia University (Montreal). She has received training from the Art Students League in New York and as a copyist in the Musée du Louvre, Paris, and has attended residencies with the Vermont Studio Center, MOMUS, and most recently, Sager Reeves Gallery in 2020. Her work spans painting, fibers, sculpture, drawing, and writing, and is based in a curiosity about her relationships with taste and handiwork, as a woman from a white, working-class family steeped in values of bootstrapping, social climbing, and self-assimilation. Hinging on the prominent role clothing, adornment, and textiles play in the storytelling around femininity, Shriver’s work wields the power inscribed in making, wearing, and imagining for unpacking internalized cultural narratives.
