An exhibition featuring the mixed media work of Canterbury School art teacher Stacey Kolbig opened on March 30 in the School's Edward J. Duffy Family Gallery. The exhibit closes on April 14.

In addition to teaching, Stacey is a multimedia artist and graphic designer. Her practice combines a variety of visual disciplines to create large-scale installation-based pieces. She has exhibited her work in Congress, Washington D.C., The Katonah Museum of Art, The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, and Governors Island Art Fair.

Prior to pursuing her MFA, she worked in the architectural field as a graphic designer. As an educator, she has taught a variety of populations including higher education, high school, and adults with developmental disabilities.

Stacey holds a BA degree in Graphic Design and a BA in Studio Art from Western Connecticut State University. She received her MFA from the same institution.

Not only does Stacey teach Intro. to Visual Art, Drawing, Painting, and Ceramics but she also directs students in a fall afterschool media arts group and a winter strength and conditioning sports option. She serves as a Duffy House dormparent.

On the same day as the show's opening, Stacey shared with the community the importance of art and the inspiration for her exhibition. Her talk was part of Canterbury's "Saints on the Hill" program, an opportunity for students and faculty to present a sliver of their life story or one of their special interests in a school meeting setting.
