A Contemporary Renaissance

“Karen Ann Myers, Assistant Director of the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston, sleeps, eats & breathes art. Before she was an artist she was a competitive gymnast. So you never know when she might arbitrarily bust out a back handspring. She approaches painting like an athlete approaches training for the big game. Her warm-ups include a ritual of washing her brushes for 15 min., an hour of mixing paint, and putting together the day’s iTunes playlist. She’s passionate about facilitating opportunities for artists.”
