Ana Wolovick (b. 1973 - NYC, USA)
Ana Wolovick received her BFA from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, in 1997 and her MFA in Painting from Yale University in 2005 - as a Jacob K. Javits Fellow.
Before beginning graduate school, Ana was a Technical Director (TD) for the South Park TV show (seasons 1 & 2). She then became the Supervising TD for the Paramount feature film "South Park, Bigger, Longer & Uncut," in which she also has a cameo.
In 1998 Wolovick collaborated with sculptor Charles Long on three digital print editions (produced by MuseX Editions, Los Angeles, CA). The first edition, "The Internalized Page Project, vol. 1," is held in the Harvard Fogg Art Museum, Cambridge, MA, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA, and the NY Public Library, Print Collection, New York, NY. The piece was also included in PS1's 2000 "Greater New York" (uncredited) and a 1999 exhibition at Bonakdar-Jancou Gallery (uncredited), which was reviewed favorably by Ken Johnson of the New York Times.
Wolovick has been an invited artist-in-residence at: "Altos de Chavon," La Romana, Dominican Republic (2002); Beta Local's inaugural "Walking Seminar" throughout Puerto Rico (2013); the "SOMA Summer Program" in Mexico City (2015); and with Culture-Vultures in Sefrou, Morocco (2017). She has been an invited critic at the RU Residency, the NARS Foundation, and the Parsons Fine-Arts Program in New York City. She has exhibited at various venues in the US and Europe.
In 2015 Wolovick curated and hand-produced "PartA- PartB," a limited-edition box-set of reproductions from 33 emerging and established artists and writers. In October of the same year, she co-founded Black Ball Projects (BBP) as an artist-run commercial gallery; by the end of 2018, she had transformed the space into a nonprofit Arts Organization. Ana sits on Black Ball Projects' Board of Directors and is the Executive Director and Treasurer of the organization.
Wolovick currently maintains a daily studio practice in her live/work space on the South Side of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where she lives with her husband, Alex Lemke (a VFX Supervisor), and their elderly cat Edna.
