Kroul will refine her artistic skills in constructing bold affective material in the subtle medium of watercolor through this ambitious project. The completion of a strong series of works, its exhibition to the public, and its critical reception, will indicate the success of this project. 2: Charted Memories will be exhibited at Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts in Fridley and Bloomington Theatre and Art Center in Bloomington. Exhibits will include an artist talk and watercolor workshop. Surveys will be available to visitors, to evaluate audience demographics, interest in the work, and feedback on the talk and workshop.
Keren Kroul created an ambitious and visually arresting body of work. This project was exhibited throughout Minnesota and received critical acclaim. This project was evaluated by the productive output it generated, its exhibition to the public, and its critical reception. Keren Kroul created nine large-scale watercolor paintings on paper, and one hundred small watercolors on paper. Kroul exhibited the project at six distinct venues throughout the state of Minnesota. This project received widespread and positive critical reception, most notably Kroul and her work were featured in MN Original, a video broadcast showcasing Minnesota artists, which aired on live TV on TPT – Twin Cities PBS on February 21, 2016. 2: Minnesotans had the opportunity to engage with Keren Kroul's art through six diverse exhibitions, four artist talks, a hands-on workshop, and a scavenger hunt. The project successfully achieved engagement with the Minnesota community by way of six exhibitions which were free and open to the public. The artist was present at every opening and verbally engaged with visitors in an informal manner. Formally, several venues hosted an artist talk, one venue included an artist workshop, and one included a scavenger hunt through the art gallery. Information about visitor engagement was culled informally, by way of conversation, and formally, by way of guest log entries and a formal questionnaire.
