Audrey Gair is a dedicated painter and inspiring art educator. When teaching art, Audrey believes in encouraging each student’s individual interests and strengths by being as much a teacher as a listener. She believes it is her duty as an instructor to work in service of each individual students’ needs.
Through her warmth and engaging personality, Audrey incorporates frequent reference to the contemporary art world when teaching to both expose students to current creative ideas and artists as well as demonstrate the similarities between learning artists and professional artists.
Audrey attended art school at the Maryland Institute College of Art and received her BFA in Painting and Art History. In Baltimore, Audrey began making a positive impact on children by teaching in a variety of after school programs including 901 Arts and Mount Royal Elementary School.
Audrey paints in order to process emotional reality; Through abstract shapes and compositions, she constructs a narrative that could not exist in words. She enjoys incorporating mixed media into her work, and she uses a variety of materials, from painting to sand and ACE bandages.
Audrey’s art studio is in Brooklyn, New York, where she makes surreal oil paintings. In her paintings, Audrey explores uncharted space for imaginative play, building worlds uninhibited by gravity or scale. A language composed of graphic shapes and strange characters lifted from low budget murals and knock off toys, mixes with the choosiest selection of words and names in a matrix resembling a 90’s screensaver or outer space.
Audrey has exhibited her artwork in many art galleries, including European Gallery (Boston, MA), Rope (Baltimore, MD), Open Space (Baltimore, MD), Sinkhole Project, (Baltimore, MD), In Lieu (Los Angeles, CA), King’s Leap (Brooklyn, NY), 891 N. Maine (Providence, RI) and Evening Hours (New York, NY). In 2018 Gair co-curated and participated in an exhibition entitled Percolate (Anything You Want to Call It), staged at Mango’s Tropical Cafe, a Latin Club in South Beach, FL, with the support from Bas Fisher Invitational.
