Visiting Artist Christine Fowler Shearer

On March 29th we were lucky enough to have curator Christine Fowler Shearer come and speak with our students about how the curation world works.  She showed us some of her recent exhibitions and discussed the artistic, legal, financial and timeline logistics of putting on a comprehensive exhibition as well as issues related to working and maintaining a traveling exhibition.

Christine runs an arts curatorial consultancy business offering exhibition development, collections research, critical essay writing and catalog design and printing for institutional exhibitions and traveling exhibitions.

Christine’s current curatorial show is titled Mirror Mirror.  The exhibition, on view at The University of Mary Washington Galleries, will be on view from March 30 through April 28 in Ridderhof Martin Gallery, with the opening reception taking place on March 30 from 5 to 7 p.m. Private tours run May 1 through June 4.  Featured artists include Erin Holscher Almazan (printmaking), Alicia Brown (painting), Jessica Calderwood (ceramics), Kristen Cliffel (ceramics), Rebecca Cross (textiles), Jessica Gardner (ceramics), Marcella Hackbardt (photography), Mabi Ponce de Leon (mixed media), Bellamy Printz (printmaking), Stephanie Rond (mixed media), Margo Selski (painting) and Babette Wainwright (ceramics).
