Since completing a Diploma of Visual Art in 2013, Melbourne visual artist Karen Salter has worked from a shared studio space in Windsor.
Karen’s art practice incorporates her passion for architectural forms and urban history, as well as her nostalgic yearnings. She works across media, currently interested in exploring the transition of her paintings into 3-dimensional works.
In 2017 her first solo exhibition was held at The Gallery at City Library in Flinders Lane, Melbourne.
Her 2020 exhibition at the Carlisle Street Art Space (City of Port Phillip gallery) was rescheduled to October 2021. Ongoing lockdowns and changes at the City of Port Phillip has meant that is no longer happening.
She was a finalist in the Ravenswood Australian Women's Art Prize, 2022, in the Emerging Artist category.
Her work has been shown at Bayside Gallery, Rooftop Art Space, Linden Postcard Show, Chapman and Bailey Belle Arti Prize exhibition and in several student shows.
She has a Bachelor of Arts Interior Design from RMIT University and in her past life Karen worked as a set designer/ art director on television productions and in the event industry.
