Art Gallery at Western New England University to Feature Work of Kim Carlino

Posted August 31, 2014

The Western New England University Art Gallery will host “Possibility of Space,” an exhibit by artist and independent curator Kim Carlino, from September 7 through October 2. The gallery, located in St. Germain Campus Center, will host an opening reception Sunday, September 7 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Carlino will offer insight into her work during a gallery talk on Tuesday, September 9 at 7:00 p.m. General Art Gallery hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Monday through Friday and 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. All events are free and open to the public.


“My work begins with the physicality of the process of painting. The materiality of the watercolor and ink pooling onto the surface forming striations and islands of pigment resembling distant galaxies or topography of a fabricated landscape,” says Carlino. “Looking for shapes, gaps and forms that intrigue me or elicit the interaction of line, I begin to assert a dialectic between the organic form and an imposed, self-created geometric language of line. The process is part intuitive and part guided structure of an embodied visual language.”

Carlino received her BFA from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She also studied at the New School and Drawing Room in NYC. She is a recipient of the Gordon Scholarship for Fine Art, Vice Chancellor’s Purchase Award and a 2011 Art Grant from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Carlino was the winner of a solo competition at the Bromfield Gallery in Boston juried by Al Miner, assistant curator of Contemporary Art at the MFA Boston and was invited to curate the annual Dialogue with a Collection at the University Museum of Contemporary Art at Umass Amherst.

For information and directions to the gallery visit or call the University at 413-782-1567.
