Kate McQuillen is a Chicago-based artist working mainly in print and installation. Her work deals with the idea of telecommunications as an invisible landscape in our midst, one that sometimes comes to life. McQuillen received an MFA in Visual Art from York University in 2009. She has exhibited in Toronto, Montréal, Boston, and Chicago.
Over the past year, I have participated in four artist residencies. Of them all, I felt that Open Studio’s was, overall, the best considered and most efficiently run. They provide what is most needed by artists: studio space and equipment, media exposure (through both an exhibit and printed matter), funding, and the support of a community. I had an excellent experience there, and will recommend it highly to anyone.
