Rowan University Art Gallery April 28-July 28, 2018 The works that encompass Navigating Elements are a response to the many complexities, intimacies, and ephemeral characteristics of our natural environment presenting a range of narratives from the physical and organic to cultural and experiential.

Stedman Gallery Rutgers Camden Center for the Arts January 16-April 21, 2018 Guest curator Leslie Kaufman, president of Philadelphia Sculptors, invited artists Jacintha Clark, Jeremy Maas, Elizabeth Mackie, Kaitlyn Paston, Joanna Platt, and Andi Steele to conceive and produce works that respond to the space and architecture of the gallery and to the work of the other artists in the exhibition. The works in this site-specific installation are a combination of objects, digital projections, light, and sound, thereby expanding the boundaries of sculpture. The newly created works will interact with the others in the gallery, invading each other's space, as well as taking over the space of the gallery.
Ann Street Gallery Newburgh,NY November 4, 2017-January 20, 2018 Curated by Virginia Walsh Exhibited: Ortler Kettles (one work) and SHE-SEA #2
-SHE-SEA #2 is based on the original installation created for “Artship Olympia,” an exhibition of site specific installations on the historic Cruiser Olympia, moored in the boat basin at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia. This version became a new interpretation constructed in Ann Street gallery's installation space in collaboration with Kaitlyn Paston. -On November 10, 1917, Alice Paul organized the Silent Sentinels, militant members of the National Women’s Party, and initiated a non-violent silent vigil with picketing in front of the White House. To celebrate this pivotal moment on its centennial anniversary, Ann Street Gallery is honoring the achievements of these suffragists who fought courageously to gain the most fundamental right of citizenship, with an all-female exhibition titled Silent Sentinels. Artists featured: Marieken Cochius, Orly Cogan, Elizabeth Duffy, Carol Boram-Hays, Cynthia Karalla, Megan Klim, Elizabeth Mackie, Katherine Mann, Penny Mateer, Chris Motley, Janet Nolan, Kaitlyn Paston, Leslie Pontz, Beth Scher, Naomi Schlinke, Tamar Stone, Etty Yaniv, and Susannah Zucker
Philadelphia Art Alliance January 26 to April 30, 2017 Exhibited: Ortler Kettles #1-6 -Included a soundscape by Kaitlyn Paston
The four artists of Paperscapes explore the possibilities of paper as a medium that straddles the divide between the analog past of print and our current digital age. Using a mixture of traditional and experimental techniques, these artists create immersive environments that challenge our traditional understanding of paper as simply a vehicle for the printed word. Incorporating light, shadow, sound, and texture, the works of Paperscapes respond to the architectural setting of the Art Alliance, transforming its turn-of-the-century domestic interior into an otherworldly space.

Six women artists reevaluate ideas of sexuality and gender within the domestic realm of materials in the latest exhibition at Rowan University Art Gallery at High Street. Utilizing yarn, string, hair, and thread in practices often considered the domain of womanhood (knitting, sewing, and weaving), they employ these materials and techniques in non-traditional ways to explore issues of identity, sexuality, power, control, and self-determination.
