Charlotte Pollock

Kentucky Crafted Artist
  • Painting


    Charlotte Ann Pollock grew up painting at home with her Mother. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Studio Art with a concentration in oil painting from the University of Louisville and studied plein-air painting for a summer at the Marchutz School of Art in Aix-en-Provence, France. She focuses on her subjective experiences of the dynamic seasons in her environment, braiding a strong connection to sense of place, record keeping and magic realism. Visual elements of her present and memories come together to create harmonies in a space that can only exist in a painting.

    She has explored various artist-in-residencies over the years beginning with Azule: A Place for the Arts & Community in Hot Springs, North Carolina where she made a painting every day for a month while living in the Pisgah National Forest. While in North Carolina, she also studied pop-up book making on a scholarship at Penland School of Craft. A travel grant through the Great Meadows Foundation brought her to New Orleans for the Prospect 4 Biennial in 2017 where she studied international contemporary artists.

    Compelled by a desire to experience the varied landscapes of her country, she embarked on a solo road trip to the Monterey Peninsula in California where she co-hosted a Top 50 West Coast Bed & Breakfast for two years, co-created the Historic Landmark Art Collective, was artist-in-resident at the historic Hotel 1110 in Monterey and also at the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur. She lived off the grid in a redwood forest for a winter at the Wild Forest Sanctuary in Northern California, where she painted interior and exterior murals on vintage camper vans, studied holistic herbalism, and created an archive of plein-air paintings and field sketches of her environment.

    Her work is currently featured through the Alley Gallery on several doorways around downtown Louisville, and in the Women United Art Magazine internationally. She works and lives in her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, where she paints in and outside her studio and makes handcrafted soaps, candles and inks for Hermitage Farm.​
