Carolyn Mason was born in Walnut Creek, CA and lives and works in Los Angeles. She received her MFA degree in Sculpture from Mills College in 2005, where her advisor, Ron Nagle, became a large influence on her work. Mason has recently exhibited at Mt. St. Mary’s University, the Laband Art Gallery at Loyola Marymount University and Parlor as well as in a solo exhibition at Winslow Garage (all Los Angeles, CA). She has also exhibited and performed at Artists’ Television Access, (San Francisco, CA), the Los Angeles World Airport (Los Angeles, CA) as well as in the 2007 Deitch Art Parade (New York, NY). Mason has been awarded residencies at the Banff Center for the Arts and the Vermont Studio Center, for which she also received a fellowship. Her work has been featured in Elle Decoration (UK edition) and Surface Design Journal, among others.


I'm happy to be included in Parlor's second-annual zine, Parlor Pages, released in April 2020, which can be viewed here. This year's theme was birds.

I'm excited to be in a new studio in the Bendix Building DTLA and look forward to having an open studio when the building reopens for gallery nights.
