about the artist

Carolyn Monastra’s interest in photography began as a high school student in Cleveland, Ohio. She continued her studies in the medium at Fordham University in New York City. After being a social worker for several years she enrolled in the MFA program at Yale University’s School of Art. Carolyn has exhibited in many venues in the US as well as internationally in Ireland, Japan, and China. Her awards include a travel grant from the English Speaking Union, a production grant from The Puffin Foundation, an artist’s grant from the city of New Haven, and a multi-media fellowship from The Rotunda Gallery and BCAT. Recent residencies at renowned art colonies, including Skaftfell in Iceland and The Djerassi Foundation and The Millay Colony in the US, have provided her with inspirational environments to pursue her work in the landscape. Her photographs are in The Margulies Warehouse Collection in Miami, The Johnson & Johnson Corporate Art Collection, and many private collections in the US and abroad.

    ‘Should rename it now, “Receding Glacier Park” to help call out to the masses what’s transpiring!f

  2. We met last year at SPE. I’m finally going through all my cards and adding websites and emails. Love your blog. I’m in Hawaii now (Kona), interesting to read your posts from here. Keep fighting the good fight. Let me know if you come to SE Asia again, I’m moving to Kuala Lumpur in a week.
