Our Juror​

Kirsty Little

Sculptress and art activist Kirsty Little strives to find honest organic movement in both spheres. Formerly a Circus Aerialist based in the UK for two decades, a sudden move to the USA in 2011 left her finding her way into the art world and changing her style of creativity. Her artwork is inspired by motherhood, womankind, and raising the profile of the struggling environment. She makes sculpture with porcelain, wood and wire to create a combination of organic shapes, and tightly tailored works. She also makes huge installations with the community’s help, out of single use plastic, focusing on the oceans’ present pollution crisis. She is a resident artist @ Otis St Studios and teaches aerial at Upspring Studios, both in Mount Rainier. She recently directed/performed the successful attempt at the World Guinness record for the most Aerialists choreographed on Silks. Her sculptural work has been shown at The Katzen Gallery – AU, Visarts – Rockville, IA&A – Dupont and is in permanent collections at Tenleytown library and SAGA Prince George’s County. She is the board chair of Ch/Art (Chevy Chase Art).
