She takes a special interest in the formal mapping of mathematical and generative forms, color theory, the study of perspective in art and architecture, and theories of attraction. Norton has exhibited nationally and internationally, including shows at California State University, Long Beach, CA, The Carnegie Center for Art and History, New Albany, IN, and Schneiderel.Home.Studio.Gallery, Vienna, Austria. She has been a contributing writer for The Brooklyn Rail, Arts in Bushwick and Abstract Critical. Rebecca Norton currently lives and works in Louisville, KY.
The Spalding University Visiting Artist Series, sponsored by the Spalding art department, supports Louisville artists and creative entrepreneurs by providing a public forum for the discussion of artists’ work. The series also benefits emerging Spalding University BFA in Studio art students by creating a space for students to interact with local working artists. These events are free and open to the public.
