Co-sponsored by the Department of Art + Design and Opalka Gallery, artist Kate Teale will be speaking about her work on Tuesday, March 1st March 15th at 6:30pm as part of the 2015-16 Artist Lecture Series at Sage College of Albany.

London-born, New York City-based artist Kate Teale’s atmospheric paintings and large-scale drawings of waves, bedsheets, and windows will be on view at Opalka Gallery from January 26 through April 10, 2016. She works in oil, watercolor and graphite to create images that float between figuration and abstraction. Whether with smaller works on canvas or large-scale site-specific drawings, she mines imagery that swings from the private to public, specific to universal but all loaded with meaning.

Teale was educated at Oxford University and City and Guilds of London Art School before receiving her MFA from Hunter College/CUNY. Her first solo show in NYC was at Spring Gallery in 1996 and she’s since shown at AIR Gallery, Monya Rowe Gallery, Jim Kempner Fine Art, Kristen Frederickson Contemporary Art, the Richmond Center for the Visual Arts at Western Michigan University, and Hampden Gallery at UMass, Amherst among other places. She’s the recipient of a Painters and Sculptors Grant from the Joan Mitchell Foundation and a NYFA Fellow. She’s also a writer, curator and founder of the Big&Small/Casual Gallery in Long Island City.
