Meet Clare Nicholls

Class of 2010

"When I was here as an art student, I went to the artist talks by visiting artists, so it was so nice to be back and to participate in this thing I experienced on the other side."

Clare Nicholls '10

Clare Nicholls '10 studied art while a student at St. Mary's College, and she currently works in Baltimore, Maryland. During the Fall 2019 semester, Nicholls spent time on campus as a visiting artist in the Artist House. The Artist House at St. Mary’s College of Maryland continues its mission to support the arts by serving as a residency program to regional, national and international arts professionals and practitioners: visual artists, art historians, critics, curators, scholars and writers and poets. The resident artists get time and space to create new work; the campus and broader community benefit from planned programming and workshops given by the artist during their residency. During her residency, Nicholls dedicated time to working on her piece that will eventually be developed into a book made entirely out of her weavings. She remarked that it felt great to return to campus because she continued to feel the support of the faculty members who helped develop her into the artist she has become.
