about the artist
Kim Bernard is always in motion. Combining her love of dance and science has led her to create art that sways, bounces, spins and shimmies. Bernard’s visually provocative sculpture, installations and encaustics demonstrate the predictable patterns in matter and motion. She has been invited to participate in many exhibits, some of which include the Portland Museum of Art, Currier Museum of Art, Fuller Craft Museum, Colby College Museum of Art, Art Complex Museum and UNH Museum of Art. Her work has been reviewed in the Boston Globe, Art News and featured in Art New England. Bernard is the recipient of the Piscataqua Region Artist Advancement Grant, a NEFA grant, and several Maine Arts Commission Grants. She is currently an Artist-in-Residence in the Physics Department at Harvard University. She received her BFA from Parsons in 1987, her MFA from Mass Art in 2010 and currently teaches at the Maine College of Art. She will be the Artist-in-Residence at the University of New England in the fall of 2016.
