Kara Rennert is a multi-media sculptor and tech geek. Her current work is primarily figurative and ceramic. However, she has also worked in glass, as well as digital audio and video. In September 2008, she used an old barn to stage a motion sensor triggered audio installation at the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education. She received her BA from the University of Pennsylvania in Art History and Fine Arts, and went on to study digital media, glass, and ceramics at the University of the Arts, Penland School of Crafts and Baltimore Clay Works. Kara has studied figurative ceramic work with Cristina Cordova, Sergei Isupov, and Beth Cavener-Stichter and was accepted as a fellow in the CDP at The Center for Emerging Visual Artists in 2008. She has shown her work in group and solo exhibitions in Pittsburgh, North Carolina, and throughout the Philadelphia area. Inherent in all her work is the tension between intimacy and estrangement -- she wants her audience to be drawn into what is dark, strange, and beautiful.
