Vicki Sher has been making art and exhibiting throughout the United States for over two decades. She has participated in numerous art fairs, including NADA, Pulse and Scope in New York and Miami. Most recently, her solo show, Always Bring Flowers, at Frosch&Portmann Gallery, included video as a moving element in drawings and paintings that celebrated domestic life and quotidian pleasures. A previous solo show: Yes/No, used a personal narrative, her grandmother’s stroke, as a catalyst for art with a reduced vocabulary. During the show, Sher organized a poetry reading, with the award-winning poets Catherine Barnett and Michael Morse reading work made in response to the drawings in the exhibition.
Recently, Sher has begun curating and has assembled numerous successful, thought-provoking shows at several galleries throughout New York City including: "Mean and Sneaking," with B. Wurtz, Amy Yao and others, "Observant," including Chris Doyle, Molly Springfield, Cynthia Lin and others, "No Plans for Today," including Franklin Evans, Lauren Luloff and more.
This curating activity stems from Sher’s natural inclination to be a part of a larger art world dialogue alongside her own art practice and has expanded her understanding of installation in her own work.
Born in Washington, DC, Vicki Sher lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She received her B.F.A. from the Cornell University, Ithaca, NY and her M.F.A. from the University of Iowa. She is the recipient of a 2014 MacDowell Colony Fellowship award.
