KALAMAZOO, Mich.—Painter Kate Teale will show her exhibits "The Housed" and "Your Place or Mine?" at Western Michigan University's Monroe-Brown and Kerr galleries, respectively in the Richmond Center for Visual Arts Thursday, Sept. 4, through Friday, Oct. 10.

Teale was born in England, and received her BA at Oxford University, her Painting Diploma at City and Guilds of London Art School and her MFA at CUNY Hunter College. She received a painters and sculptors grant from the Joan Mitchell Foundation in 2013, and was a New York Foundation of the Arts Fellow in Painting 2008. Teale has written feature articles for the UK art magazine Contemporary Art. Kate is founder/director of Big & Small/Casual Gallery. To learn more, visit

The Housed

The “Housed” installation builds from work to work, image to image—recognizable but mysterious, ultimately creating a whole that endows once-independent parts with additional breadth and depth. Teale works in the interstices of art expectations; near abstractions turn out to be loaded with content.

Your Place or Mine?

"Your Place or Mine?" is a timely exhibit. With fewer and fewer places being affordable, spaces for artists are increasingly rare. When artists stake out a new territory, and developers follow and price them, and other residents, out, artistic endeavors are threatened.

Gallery hours

RCVA galleries are open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, and noon to 6 p.m. Saturday.
