Posted by SUNYUlster

Opening Reception:

Friday, November 3, 7:00 p.m.,

Muroff Kotler Visual Arts Gallery

Rita MacDonald is a visual artist exploring

two related bodies of work. In one, she works

with images of decorative patterns found in

architecture to make large-scale wall drawings

that are temporary and site-specific. In the other,

she uses images of decorative patterns found

in clothing to make small-scale, often highly

detailed, graphite drawings on paper.

She has exhibited at Wave Hill and Lehman

College in the Bronx, Smack Mellon and Storefront

Ten Eyck in Brooklyn, The Soap Factory in

Minneapolis, MN and The John Michael Kohler

Arts Center in Sheboygan, WI. MacDonald

has completed several public art commissions

including two permanent mosaics in subway

stations. Through The Women’s Studio Workshop

in Rosendale, NY she received a grant to publish

an artist book which is now included in several

large collections, including the libraries of both the

Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, MN. and Yale

University in New Haven, CT.
