KMAC was honored to host artist Monica Stewart as our Artist in Residence studio from August 12 - October 31, 2022. Stewart specializes in paper art and used her residency to make work in the museum that is now being exhibited in her solo show, Natureish/Nurturish which in now on view until January 22nd, 2023.
As a part of her residency, Stewart will be teaching a number of free art workshops like the one above. Stewart's residency is funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Kentucky Arts Council.
Monica Stewart is a Louisville-based artist specializing in cut paper and fiber art. She holds a BFA in painting from Murray State University and an MFA from the University of Louisville, where she currently teaches studio art. Her work demonstrates exemplary technical skill and precision in assembling imaginary scenes of feminine endurance and creativity. Through the use of cut paper and fiber, Stewart’s work takes on an additional dimension of societal critique in which mediums considered “women’s work” are elevated to the level of fine art.
Stewart’s work has been exhibited at the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts (Gatlinburg, TN), the Cressman Center for Visual Art (Louisville, KY), Revelry Gallery (Louisville, KY) and Tim Faulkner Gallery (Louisville, KY). She is a Hadley Creatives alumnus (2019) and was awarded the Emerging Artist Award by Louisville Visual Art in 2019.
