Carol Gove works out of her New Hampshire studio as an abstract mixed media collage artist. She has a BA from the University of New Hampshire and studied at the DeCordova Museum School in Boston. She has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibits over the last 15 years. Her paintings draw from nature, landscape, and abstract expressionism, striking a balance between painterly gesture and the physicality of pasted collage. She mines a personal and aesthetic history for source material primarily relying on memorabilia from the lives of familial others.
Her paintings and collages are exhibited nationally at Gebert Contemporary in Scottsdale, Stremmel Gallery in Reno, and Galerie d'Orsay in Boston. She is a member of the DeCordova Museum Corporate Art Program, the Monadnock Art Colony in New Hampshire, and The National Association of Women Artists in New York. Her work can be found in public collections including the Federal Reserve Bank in Boston. She has been accepted in many nationally juried shows including a 100 year retrospective exhibit “In Context: Collage & Abstraction” at the Pavel Zoubok Gallery in New York. This exhibit included contemporary artists as well as master work by Kurt Schwitters, Robert Motherwell, Lee Krasner, and more. She has also exhibited in groups shows in the Boston area at the DeCordova Museum, the Danforth Art Museum, and the Whistler Museum of Art.
In addition to working in her studio, Carol volunteers much of her time in animal rescue. She is the Assistant Director at a cat shelter in Massachusetts. She also has donated her artwork to many non profit causes including The Human Rights Campaign, Crotched Mountain Rehabilitation Center in New Hampshire, Citizens for Affordable Housing in Boston, The New Hampshire Institute of Art, and the Contemporary Art Forum in Phoenix.
