INERTIA: ZOË CHARLTON: A Studio Visit with Mixed Media Artist Zoë Charlton

by Amy Boone-McCreesh

November 30, 2016

Zoë Charlton is a well-known fixture in the Baltimore and DC art scenes, though before our studio visit she and I had only interacted as acquaintances. The artist invited me to her DC studio near American University, where she is an Associate Professor of Art and currently serves as the Art Department Chair.

Charlton and I found we share an esoteric history, with both of us having spent time in remote Limestone, Maine, at the now-closed Loring Air Force Base. She also shared her best practices for the studio and a love of Sci-Fi movies and TV.
