Molly Aubry

Molly Aubry, born in Denver, Colorado, lives and works in South Florida. She received her BFA from the University of Florida and her MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Aubry's work explores entangled perceptual worlds through the matrix of print media. Mining the tension between organic materials and digital processes, the work imagines artifacts from a world in which the natural and artificial are inextricably linked. Aubry's recent exhibitions include Paperworks at bj spoke gallery in Huntington, NY, Molly Aubry: Dark Luminosity at the Cultural Council for Palm Beach, Strange Paradise: A Window into Surrealism at the Annmarie Sculpture Gardens and Art Center in Solomons, MD, and Intimacy at Science Gallery of Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. Aubry was awarded the 2023-24 South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship, and in 2022 she completed a commission awarded by the Miami-Dade Department of Cultural Affairs for the Related Group's project Gallery on the River in Miami, FL. In 2020, Aubry’s work was featured in New Eyes, The Mid America Print Council Journal’s issue on contemporary printmaking. She has been awarded full fellowships for residencies at the Vermont Studio Center, Ragdale Foundation, Shoals Marine Laboratory, and Playa, and a Visiting Artist Grant in Moldova from the U.S. Department of State. In addition to her interdisciplinary studio practice, Aubry is an Adjunct Professor at the New World School of the Arts in Miami and an Associate with Acquavella Galleries in Palm Beach.
