Mara Baldwin: Work, Sometimes
Mara Baldwin’s work focuses on the impossible dream of utopia and asks if a perfect life can include the imperfect feelings of failure, loneliness, and dissatisfaction. Baldwin’s multidisciplinary and research-based work uses textiles and drawings to create serial and narrative forms.
She shares her time between Ithaca, New York, and the Hudson Valley where she teaches drawing at Cornell University and Bard College, respectively. She is the recipient of a 2022 New York State Council on the Arts grant and has been awarded residencies at, among others, Wassaic Project, Elizabeth Murray Artist Residency program, Ucross Foundation, Millay Colony for the Arts, Djerassi, and Saltonstall.
