Alumna wins $20,000 and major art exhibition in St. Louis

October 25, 2013

Loyola University New Orleans alumna Carlie Trosclair ’08 was one of three artists selected for the Great Rivers Biennial, a collaborative exhibition presented by the Contemporary Art Museum of St. Louis in Missouri. She received a $20,000 award and an exhibit in the museum’s main galleries.

As an installation artist, Trosclair uses pliable materials, such as fabric and wallpaper, to re-create interior spaces to engage the viewer’s imagination to rethink what he is looking at. The goal is to create more of a sensual than intellectual experience—almost dream-like.

Trosclair has exhibited at the Siena Art Institute in Siena, Italy; The Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena, Calif.; and 6612 Art Space and The Luminary Center for the Arts, both in St. Louis. On Dec. 14, she will open a solo exhibit at the Antenna Gallery, 3718 St. Claude Ave. in New Orleans.

Established in 2003, the Great Rivers Biennial identifies talented emerging artists in St. Louis, provides them with financial assistance and elevates their profile across the Midwest and national arts communities.
