Kathy Keler has been active as a painter for over 20 years. Born in Budapest, Hungary, she has lived most of her life in the United States, while also traveling extensively. After receiving her B.A. from Bryn Mawr College, Keler moved to Washington DC in 1980. Since then, her work has been shown in numerous group exhibits, both in the US and in other countries, including France, Germany, Hungary and India. She has had solo exhibits at the District of Columbia Arts Center and the Montpelier Cultural Arts Center, among others. She received an individual artist grant in 1995 from the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities. Keler has participated in artist residency programs at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington DC, and ArtsAcre in Calcutta, India.
This current cycle of work began in late 1996 and is still in progress. The theme of these paintings is revisited loss. In seeking to access the past, I am both reliving and transforming it: memory becomes myth, and grief becomes a rite of passage.
