Artist Talk with St. Elmo Artist-in-residence Katy McCarthy

Join us for a talk by our first St. Elmo Fellow, Katy McCarthy. McCarthy works primarily in video and sculpture and earned her MFA from Hunter College in NYC. Her work laminates pre-existing texts, historical figures, and dated therapeutic modalities with contemporary experience. The St. Elmo Arts Residency is a joint project of the Department of Art and Art History and the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center at The University of Texas at Austin that offers one fellowship each academic year to a newly minted MFA artist in painting, drawing, print, photo, sculpture or multimedia. The residency includes a house and studio in a small artist compound in the St. Elmo district of South Austin, located midway between the university campus and the Wildflower Center. Katy McCarthy has exhibited at Cluster Gallery; Sleep Center Gallery, New York; Flux Factory, LIC; Santa Barbara Contemporary Art Museum; Santa Barbara Museum of Art; Tiger Strike Asteroid, Los Angeles; Maxon Mills; and the Military Museum in Belgrade. Her videos have screened at NURTUREart’s 2018 Single Channel: Video Art Festival, CUNY Video Festival, and Queens Boulevard Film Festival. She has been an artist-in-residence at SOHO20 Residency Lab; Grin City, Iowa; The Wassaic Project in Wassaic, NY and currently, the St. Elmo Arts Residency at UT Austin, Texas.
