Karen Kettering Dimit is a self-taught artist, but steeped in art history, classical techniques and contemporary conceptual art through extensive travel, voracious art exposure and occasional workshops. Ms. Dimit has won many awards, and shown extensively throughout the U.S., most recently at the Women's History Museum of California, Museum of Glass in Tacoma WA, Gold Coast Arts Center, Philadelphia's Magic Garden Gallery, the Painted Bride, the Gallery at Penn College of Technology in Williamsport, the Museum of Man in San Diego, and multiple shows in NYC. Ms. Dimit maintains a studio in Long Island City, NY. She is co-founded the LIC Arts Open, and a member of the SAMA.
My artworks deal with multiple dualities inherent in the human condition that are triggered by current events. Historical references are contrasted with modern elements to express a collective sense of what we have become. I utilize materials that have relevance beyond the material's basic decorative function, striving to conflagrate the narrative, process and material.
