Current Artist-in-Residence

 

Nicole Malcolm
artist-in-residence

Nicole Malcolm is an artist born and currently residing in Northeast Ohio. Malcolm received her BFA at Ohio University in 2021, with a concentration in Printmaking, a minor in Art History and a certificate in Museum Studies.
This year Malcolm plans to work as a Local Artist In Residence at Rubber City Prints in Akron, OH and build her portfolio of work. She is preparing for her first
Solo Exhibition this November-December in Canton, OH.  

Malcolm’s printmaking and mixed media works aim to represent physical and mental spaces, emphasizing memory, growth, and intimacy. These themes come directly from significant moments in her own life. By creating this work, she hopes to invite others to feel comfortable sharing their life stories as well.  

Malcolm has participated in national print exchanges, and shown her work in several local and national exhibitions. She was recently awarded two Honorable Mentions and The People’s Choice Award for her installation piece “Places You Pass” in the 2021-2022 Stark County Artists Exhibition, at the Massillon Museum in Massillon, OH.
