Stacy Lynn Waddell creates works that appropriate the power invested in linguistics, historical record and cultural leitmotifs. After earning her MFA from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2007, Waddell’s works and multimedia installations have been on view at the Franklin Humanities Institute at Duke University (NC), the Weatherspoon Art Museum (NC), The North Carolina Museum of Art (NC), The Gibbes Museum of Art (SC), The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PA), Project Row Houses (TX), The Studio Museum in Harlem (NY) and Koplin Del Rio (CA) among other venues.

Waddell’s works are represented in public and private collections across the country. She has been awarded a Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant, an Art Matters Grant and has been in residence at Project Row Houses. Currently, she is participating in When The Stars Begin To Fall: Imagination and the American South that originated at The Studio Museum in Harlem and will travel to the NSU Museum of Art, Ft.
