About the Artist

Her work has been exhibited throughout the east coast, most recently in shows at Collar Works (Troy, NY), Fenimore Art Museum (Cooperstown, NY), and The Painting Center (NYC). She is a 2021 recipient of NYSCA's Decentralization Individual Artist Grant and was named a "Steward of the Catskills" by The Catskill Center in 2019 for her work as an artist and anti-racism community organizer. She is a founding member and program director for Get Woke! Catskills, an organization using the arts as a vehicle for discussions around race and identity. Wood was the Spring 2017 recipient of Lesley Art+Design's esteemed MFA in Visual Arts Alumni Award.
