Linda Margaret Kilgore will be the first Artist in Residence this season at the beautiful Sanctuary on Camelback Resort this Season. Starting in November, this sculptor and multi-media artist’s work will be featured at the Resort, and will run through the end of November.
Linda Margaret Kilgore’s work offers many moods; “the evocative quality of meteorite dust, the symbolic and delicate transience of rose petals, the violent history of black charcoal branches from raging forest fires: I fall in love over and over again with the beauty and the histories of many materials, and I connect them in new ways, often in combination with more traditional materials.” She works in a variety of mediums, including paint, steel sculpture, installation and mixed media. Prehistoric art of the Southwest, European prehistoric art, contemporary art, poetry and languages have influenced Kilgore’s work over the years, but she continues to evolve as an artist.
Her work has been shown extensively in universities, galleries, museums, art centers and hospitals both here in the US and in Europe. She is the recipient of numerous arts’ awards, including a Rockefeller Grant, and has had several prestigious art sponsorships by collectors’ groups. Her work has been featured in numerous publications both online and in print including most recently LUXE Magazine, Blisss Magazine, New York Times LAist.com, AZRedbook and Phoenix New Times, just to name a few. Her educational background include formal studies of psychology and philosophy, as well as independent art studies abroad in Italy, France, England, and Mexico.
