Kara Taylor: ”In 1997 I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts from Maine College of Art. I majored in ceramic sculpture with a concentration in intaglio printmaking. After college I was without the facilities to continue my training in either discipline so I started to paint. I went to live in Maui for a year where I had my first Juried solo exhibition of paintings, another followed back east that next year. Since I have participated in various groups show through-out New England and one Juried International Exhibition.
The years following took me to India, a place that has long influenced my philosophy on art and life. In 2000 I returned to Martha’s Vineyard and opened a gallery at Nip n’ Tuck Farm, in my agricultural home town of West Tisbury. The creation of Haystack Gallery was an immediate success. Its purpose was to allow me to feature exclusively my own work. I occupied this space for 5 years and have since moved to a bigger space on Main st. in Vineyard Haven, changing the galleries name to Kara Taylor Fine Art.
My native place of Martha’s Vineyard continues to be the source for home, gallery, family, and inspiration.”
