Laura Karetzky, Visual Arts

Laura Karetzky is a visual artist based in Brooklyn, NY. Her work comprises a visual diary, where each instant is understood as being a part of a larger and often unresolved narrative. Her vision and process seek to explore those instances when we feel as though we are mere observers to our own circumstance. 

She is a member of the Brooklyn Information and Culture (BRIC) Contemporary Art Council (2007-present), and served as Alumni Advisor to the Academic Affairs Committee for The New York Academy of Art (2006-2012). 

Among other honors, she has received awards from The Silvermine Guild and the Eric Fischl Award of Distinction, a Yaddo Colony residency, and a Brooklyn Information and Culture BCAT Residency. 

Her work has been presented in solo and group exhibitions internationally, including The Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, Washington DC, and Arte Laguna, Venice Italy, and has been reviewed in American Arts Quarterly, The New York Times, Hyperallergic, The Washington Post, Canteen Magazine and The Oakland Review. 

Ms. Karetzky holds degrees from Carnegie-Mellon University and the New York Academy of Art, with additional training at the School of Visual Arts, the New York Studio School, and the Rhode Island School of Design.
