Colleen O’Hara

Colleen O’Hara ’13
Colleen O’Hara graduated from PSU in 2013 with a BFA in 2D Studio Art, majoring in painting. After graduation she was accepted into the MFA program in Painting/Drawing at SUNY New Paltz and will graduate in May of 2016.

While at PSU, Colleen’s work focused on internal structures of living things. Her oil paintings referenced imagery such as cells, muscles, tendons, and underwater environments. Currently she is exploring different materials such as acrylic and watercolor paint. Her work is process-oriented; she is playing with ideas of space, structure, organization and chaos.

Colleen’s work has been shown at the Community Arts Network of Oneonta, NY; the View in Old Forge, NY; ARTbar Gallery in Kingston, NY; as well as in an MFA exhibit titled Improper Articles at the Greenpoint Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.
