Ehren Reed grew up near Chicago and graduated with a BA in Latin American Studies from Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio. In late 2013, she moved to Louisville from San Francisco, where she had lived for 14 years and where she received a BFA with High Distinction in Painting & Drawing from the California College of the Arts.  As LVA’s Outreach Programs Manager, she continues her work as a community-based art educator, working with youth in a variety of visual art programs. Ehren’s latest personal artwork relies upon found photography which she reinterprets and transforms through stitching and embroidery. This unique blend of traditional craft and contemporary media investigates ideas of memory in contemporary culture and seeks to develop a conversation between the ethereal world of technology and the hand-sewn physicality of craft. Her rigorous personal studio practice helps guide her throughout her journey as an arts educator.
