Kat O’Connor: This Fluid Report of Motion


On view June 20 through August 3, 2019

Artist talk: Tuesday, June 25 at 12:00 PM

What do we expect from a traditional portrait that takes away from the expression of the human being? Can the body, the hands, better express who that person is? Kat O’Connor explores these questions in This Fluid Report of Motion. O’Connor’s portraits of women, which rarely show faces, encourage the viewer to see each individual’s passions, experiences, wisdom, and confidence as conveyed by their hands and bodies. Each woman floats in water, presenting an environment for magnifying strength, finding purpose, and conjoining realism and abstraction.

Kat O’Connor received her Bachelor of Arts in Art with highest honors from Montana State University and her Master of Fine Arts from the University of Texas at San Antonio. She has shown her artwork extensively throughout Massachusetts, Texas, Montana, and beyond and is a Copley Master at the Copley Society of Art in Boston.

Gallery hours will run Tuesdays through Thursdays, 12:00 to 5:00 PM, and Fridays through Saturdays, 12:00 to 7:00 PM.

** Parking is available at the Worcester Public Library (McGrath) Lot, Federal Plaza Garage, Worcester Common Garage, and Pearl-Elm Garage.
