Nat George is a visual artist, curator, and art educator in Los Angeles. Her work explores alternative, collaborative, and artist-led initiatives that reflect changing paradigms in how we exhibit, write about, and critique art. Although she works in a variety of mediums, her focus remains largely based in painting and new media.
George has been leading curatorial projects since 2006, bringing art industry contributors together in collaborative practice to showcase emerging and mid-career artists at various venues in the Los Angeles area.
While she continues to pursue independent projects, she is also a Gallery Associate and frequent Guest Curator for an established contemporary art space in Downtown Los Angeles specializing in works by outsider artists. Aside from contributing to the gallery’s programming, George participates in monthly meetings with Downtown Art Walk organizers, and is actively involved in developing partnerships between businesses in the Historic Core and the local arts community. More recently, she joined the ranks of My L.A. Lifestyle as an Arts columnist.
George serves on the board of Twitter Art Exhibit, an international exhibition powered by social media, featuring the works of hundreds of participating artists coming together to support a local nonprofit in a host city. Her role within the organization is to manage curatorial and exhibition logistics, and determine the feasibility of proposals by prospective organizers.
Nat George’s work has been exhibited at DAC Gallery, The Annex LA, City Market Gallery, Los Angeles Center for Digital Art (LACDA), Katalyst Foundation and Siren Studios (Los Angeles), SCA Project Gallery (Pomona), as well as Shoshana Wayne Gallery and Arena 1 Gallery (Santa Monica).
