Karey Kessler

Seattle, WA, USA


American, b. 1974   —   Karey Kessler creates map-paintings that contain ideas about physical places, but also spiritual, internal, and temporal spaces as well. They explore the entangled ways in which our minds, time, and place are deeply interconnected. Kessler received her BA in Anthropology and Fine Arts from the University of Pennsylvania and her MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. She is a member of Shift Gallery in Seattle and has artwork in the flat files of the Pierogi Gallery (New York City). Her work is included in the books: The Map as Art by Kitty Harmon (Princeton Architectural Press, 2009), and From Here to There: A Curious Collection From the Hand Drawn Map Association (Princeton Architectural Press, 2010) and Le Paysage est une traverse, by Gilles Tiberghien, (Editions Parentheses, 2020). In early 2022 Meta Open Arts commissioned her to create a mural at the Meta Reality Labs in Redmond, WA. In 2020, her work was selected for the exhibit, Time Sensitive, at the Broto: Art-Climate- Science convention in Provincetown, MA. In 2019 she participated in the SciArt Initiative Bridge Residency. She has shown her work widely, including exhibits at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts Museum (PA), the Weatherspoon Art Museum (NC), the Tacoma Art Museum (WA), and the Bellevue Art Museum (WA). From 2018-2020 Kessler had a temporary public art piece in Seattle titled, A Path of Wonderment and Connection. She currently has an installation, there once was WILDERNESS here, on the Tollbooth Gallery in Tacoma, WA.
