Casey McGuire was born in Shrewsbury, Vermont. The daughter of a taxidermist and decoy carver she was subject to object making at a young age. House traps, shadows and eerie lit structures are remnants of growing up in Vermont. This has left a lasting impression and fuels the work she produces today that addresses the material repercussions of the housing crisis.
McGuire received her BFA from Alfred University; and a MFA in Sculpture, from University of Colorado, Boulder in 2007. She is an Assistant Professor at the University of West Georgia, where she is the Foundations Coordinator.
McGuire has had solo exhibitions at the Urban Institute for Contemporary Art, Grand Rapids, MI, The Zuckerman Museum of Art, in Kennesaw, GA, and ATHICA, Athens Institute for Contemporary Art, in Athens, Georgia.
Recently her works have been shown at the Goat Farm Arts Center in Atlanta, GA; Universityof Mississippi in Oxford, MI and at the UTSA Satellite Gallery in San Antonio, TX. An interview with McGuire was published in the October 2009 edition of Sculpture Magazine.
