Kate Conlon is a Chicago-based artist and educator.
Her work, investigational in nature, usually begins with an earnest attempt to figure something out and invariably ends in a mess of paradox, incongruence, and doubt.
Conlon’s work has been exhibited at venues including The Grand Rapids Art Museum, the Terrain Biennial, in Oak Park, IL and Museu do Douro in Portugal. She has received grants and residencies from Kala Art Intitute, ACRE and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. Conlon is founder and co-director of Fernwey Gallery and director of Fernwey Editions, an independent publishing house that collaborates with artists on limited edition prints and multiples.
