2014 Delaware Division of the Arts Established Fellow in the Visual Arts-Painting.
T.S. Kist has worked with a variety of influences to help inspire visual content. Social, medical, and popular references have provided narrative and symbolic imagery in much of her work. The current body of paintings explores the personal, minimizing the narrative while emphasizing the process. Concurrently, Kist is producing a large body of multi-media installation work which examines technological litter and the future of "wireless waste."
Kist holds a Masters in Fine Arts Painting (MFA) from Savannah College of Art & Design. Professional highlights include 2014 DDOA grant in visual arts; Vermont Studio Center residency in sculpture; solo exhibition in the Savannah/Hilton Head airport; national publication in New American Paintings
and most recently in Philadelphia-based Fresh Paint
Kist's professional background includes museum education (program developer & manager) and art instruction.
