Visiting Artist: Hilary Wilder
Hilary Wilder makes paintings and installations that address how specific places are represented and, at times, fictionalized. The works often respond to misunderstandings about landscape or location, or to the simplification or “cultivation” of natural themes in art and design.
She is the recipient of numerous awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, a grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, and a Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Professional Fellowship. Wilder has exhibited work in solo exhibitions at venues that include The Suburban (Oak Park, Ill.), Open Satellite (Seattle), the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, and Devin Borden Gallery (Houston), and in numerous group exhibitions, most recently at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum (Lincoln, Mass.), the Wilton House Museum (Richmond, Va.), Artspace (New Haven, Conn.), Monster Truck Gallery (Dublin), and INOVA (Milwaukee). She lives and works in Richmond, Virginia and Galveston, Texas.
