Erin Woodbrey (b. 1985, Portland, ME) is a New England-based visual artist whose body of cross-disciplinary work—videos, photographs, prints, and sculpture—utilizes repetition, silence, and the physical isolation of organic and static elements to parse the fused qualities of quotidian experience. Woodbrey’s recent solo exhibitions include Leg, Limber, Lumber, Limb, Higgins Gallery Cape Cod Community College, Barnstable, MA; Time Mothers, Gaa Gallery, Provincetown, MA; Material Studies, Arena Gallery, Liverpool, UK; Air of Another Planet, Gaa Gallery, Wellfleet, MA; and Undercoat, Gallery 10, Truro, MA. Group exhibitions include The Grass is Green, Gaa Gallery, Cologne, Germany; Beneath Metropolis, Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum, San Antonio, TX; New Prints New Narratives, International Print Center, New York; Video Trail Mix, Tritriangle, Chicago; and For Love, Not Money, Kumu Art Museum, Tallinn, Estonia. Woodbrey received an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2014, and her work is included in the public collections of Columbia College, Chicago; Provincetown Art Association and Museum, Provincetown, MA; and the Fundación ́ace Art Collection, Proyecto’ace, Buenos Aires, Argentina. She is the recipient of a 2017 residency fellowship at the Vermont Studio Center and a 2018 School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University Traveling Fellowship.
