Tracey Halvorsen I Monument Sotheby’s International Realty I Art Gallery Event
August 25, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Please join us on Thursday, August 25th, from 4-6 pm at our Ruxton Office & Gallery to enjoy the work of Tracey Halvorsen
Tracey Halvorsen began painting while in high school in Bethesda, Maryland. She went on to receive a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art (where she graduated with the school’s top prize, the Agnes Gund Travelling Scholarship), and an MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art. Halvorsen had a number of solo shows in Ohio, Maryland, and Del Ray Beach, Florida, where she was represented by the Carlynn Gallery.
As Halvorsen’s paintings evolved, so did her interest in applying creativity to other mediums, including digital. As an emerging digital artist, Halvorsen’s work won a prestigious Flash Forward Film Festival Award in Amsterdam and propelled her further into the digital space. An entrepreneur at heart, she started her own digital design agency, Fastspot, in 1999, and grew that company into an award-winning nationally recognized agency over the next 20 years.
Halvorsen has returned to her true love, painting. “Painting is my way of feeling and sharing the best parts of the human experience. Our own creative expression and experiencing others’ expressions opens doors in the mind and spirit that allow for a deeper connection and understanding of life.”
She was born in 1971 in New York City and is currently living and working in Baltimore, Maryland.
BFA, Cleveland Institute of Art, 1989-1993 (won the top graduating award – Agnes Gund Traveling Scholarship)
