Kaylyn Gerenz recently graduated with a Master in Fine Arts from the University of
Wisconsin-Madison and is now living and working in Minnesota. Her work examines
why there is an urgency and need to document, to record in order to remember.
Looking to moments where the unseen is visible, Gerenz utilizes banal materials
from domestic spaces. Gerenz received her BFA from MSU-Moorhead and has been
awarded annual academic scholarships and several artistic grants, such as the
LRAC: Professional Development Grant. Enjoying community engagement, Gerenz
has worked in art museums in both North Dakota and Minnesota in various positions
such as Program Director, Curator, Educational Assistant, and Collegiate Course Instructor.
Gerenz has exhibited work in Italy, LA, MD, MN, ND and WI and has worked as a Project
Assistant for various professional artists and has co-founded two artist co-op spaces.
Currently, she teaches fiber classes at the Textile Center in Minneapolis.
