Constellation CLT logo

Constellation CLT  is designed to connect visitors of The Mint Museum with the universe of talent in the local community.

In its second year, Constellation CLT is an exhibition series designed to connect visitors to The Mint Museum with artists in our community and to activate the public spaces of the museum. The installations rotate three times per year and can be seen in four places at Mint Museum Uptown: in the entrance; at the foot of the atrium escalator; and on the landings of the Mezzanine and 4th levels.

Constellation CLT is generously supported by The Arts & Science Council.

About The Artist

Katherine Boxall constructs large-scale canvases that incorporate a ground of lush oil and pastels that explode with saturated color.

Boxall, who completed her MFA at San Francisco Art Institute and moved to Charlotte in the summer of 2018, creates in her west Charlotte studio, a haven for her work with acrylics, spray paint, pastels and oils. She began as a figurative painter. She gradually loosened her lines, breaking down the form of the body into broad expanses and elongated, rounded contours. Since 2018, Boxall has worked primarily in abstraction.
