MARGARET KELLER
 
 
With interdisciplinary series including installation, painting, drawing, prints, digital media, and sculpture, I examine the relationship between contemporary culture, nature, and technology.  Current series include looking at the pervasiveness of surveillance, the range of natural disasters, and our filtered experiences of nature in this digital age (The Space Between series).  I also focus on the curatorial and critical aspects of contemporary art with published reviews in Art in America,All the Art, The Delicious Line and temporaryartreview.
 
Exhibits include Quadratfuß-NX2-Annex Art /Berlin, Cedarhurst Museum, The Arkansas Art Center Museum, The Contemporary Art Workshop in Chicago, The Maryland Federation of Art Gallery in Annapolis, The Crisp Museum at Southeast Missouri State University, The Wichita Art Museum, The Neville Museum in Green Bay, The Tweed Museum in Duluth, The Riverside Museum and The Brea Cultural Center in California, The Roanoke Museum of Fine Arts, and The Butler Institute of American Art in Ohio, among others.
