Wendy KendrickVisual Arts, Textiles, Mask Making, & Collage
Heavily influenced during the early part of her artist career by the work of Romare Bearden, Wendy Kendrick has applied her years of work with collage and mixed media to her current work with quilted portrait masks. In 2010, Wendy was selected by the Arts Council Lake Erie West to travel to the East African country of Tanzania as a U.S. delegate for a women’s artist exchange. In addition, she was invited to speak to college students regarding her artistic journey at the U.S. Embassy in Dar es Salaam.
Wendy received her BA in visual studies from Dartmouth College and has furthered her studies through additional coursework taken at the Dayton Art Institute, Columbus College of Art and Design, and Quilt Surface Design Symposium. Her work has been featured at the King Arts Complex, Burnell R. Roberts Triangle Gallery at Sinclair Community College (Dayton, Ohio), Star Arts Gallery, Ohio Craft Museum, the Rhodes Office Tower, Joyce Gordon Gallery (Oakland, California), the Shot Tower Gallery and Richard M. Ross Art Museum (Delaware, Ohio). Her work also appears in the recent publications the Columbus Book Project, Yours for Race and Country: Reflections on the Life of Colonel Charles Young, and Visioning Human Rights in the New Millennium. Currently, Wendy serves as lead artist with the Art in the House Program (sponsored by the Ohio Alliance for Arts Education) at St. Stephens Community House and Windsor Stem Academy.
