About our Juror, Lindsay McCulloch

Lindsay McCulloch’s dimensional artworks playfully investigate the boundaries and rich history of non-objective painting. The resultant pieces straddle the line between structure and chaos; craft and fine art; reality and illusion; and 2d and 3d space, inviting the viewer to consider their own relationship with abstraction and the medium of painting. McCulloch holds an MFA in Painting from Boston University and received her MA and BA from the University of Virginia. Her work has been featured in museums and galleries in the U.S. and abroad, including the Joel and Lila Harnett Museum of Art at the University of Richmond Museums in Richmond, VA; the Danforth Museum of Art in Framingham, MA; Bowery Gallery in New York City, NY; Linda Matney Gallery in Williamsburg, VA; R02 Art in Dallas, TX; Fraser Gallery in Bethesda, MD; Whitelight Contemporary in Santa Fe, NM; Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, TX; John Rylands Library in Manchester, UK; and Casa del Lector in Madrid, Spain; among others. McCulloch holds various awards, including a Joan Mitchell Foundation Fellowship, a Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Fellowship for Painting, and a Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Award. She is a two-time recipient of an Individual Artist Grant from the Arts & Humanities Council of Montgomery County. Her work is featured in numerous collections, including the Iraq National Library in Baghdad, Iraq and the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, TX. McCulloch currently serves as the Coordinator of Drawing and Painting and an Associate Professor of Visual Arts at Anne Arundel Community College in Arnold, MD. She has held additional teaching positions at Boston University and the University of Virginia, among others. For more information about McCulloch and her work, please visit: www.lindsaymcculloch.com.
