January 15 ā€“ March 22, 2024

Artist Statement
My name is Tamara Monk and Iā€™m a painter living in Bowling Green, Ohio. My education and art training came from the Cleveland Institute of Art (BFA) and BGSU (MFA). I was an Instructor and Adjunct at BGSU for 23 years in painting and drawing. I also taught part-time at Lourdes University and Owens Community College for a number of years. I have artwork in permanent collections in the Toledo Museum of Art and the BGSU Foundation as well as other area institutions and private collectors. My resume includes numerous group shows and one or two persons shows, the most recent was in 2020 at The Marathon Center in Findlay, OH. I have exhibited in various galleries, most recently the Castle Gallery in Ft. Wayne, IN and the Hudson Gallery in Sylvania, OH. I also have been included in competitive shows and traveling exhibitions. I have done numerous commission portraits for University of Toledo Medical Center and other institutions as well as private individuals.

From the Artist
I have been trying to make art for over fifty years. It is a rare and privileged path to be able to pursue. The collection of these works span several decades up to the present. I hope they convey the wonder, mystery, joy, and gratitude following this path has allowed me to embrace.
