Caroline Bugby is a sculptor and installation artist who works and exhibits in both the USA and the UK. Currently she is doing a year long residency at Tonbridge School, Kent, UK, where she is becoming involved in local archaeology and responding to this in her work. She is also a member of DROP: Discovering Roman Otford Project, a community archaeology team. In 2018 Caroline participated in two residencies, one at the Vermont Studio Center, where she met artist Maureen Jordan with whom she collaborates, and the other in Barcelona. Earlier this year, Caroline and Maureen created a site specific installation, Confluence, for a listed Norman church in Kent.
Caroline has an upcoming solo show in the Tunnel Gallery at Tonbridge School, thicket, which forms the culmination of her research on archaeology. During the remainder of her residency she is focusing on community engagement activities to involve both students and staff.
Caroline has exhibited work in the UK and USA, and has public artwork on permanent display in New York and Vermont.
Alongside her artistic practice, Caroline is also an educator; at the moment she is teaching at secondary school, previously she has lectured at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and Forsyth Technical Community College, USA. She is also involved in community outreach: in Greensboro, NC she coordinated a free art program for immigrant teens, and currently in the UK she runs art workshops at Hospice in the Weald.
