Summer Yates is an interdisciplinary visual artist from Bucks County, PA. Her current body of work consists of soft sculpture and wall hangings made from layers of repurposed textiles, plastics, and foam.Summers' somatic approach to artmaking comes from her experience growing up as a ballet dancer. The material dexterity she employs, hint at her many years of experience working as a scenic and decorative artist. Summer studied art formally in Philadelphia and was awarded scholarships from Moore College of Art and Design where she received her BFA in 2000, and The Pennsylvania Academy of The Fine Arts where she received her MFA in 2007. Summers' vibrant paintings and mirror mobile installations have been exhibited at prominent institutions in the Philadelphia area including, The Independence Seaport Museum, Rowan University, and The Kimmel Center For The Performing Arts. In 2015 she was invited to exhibit her work in the UK as the only American artist to be part of a curated exhibition, “A Moving Identity” in response to the ongoing refugee crisis. In October 2019, Summers installation of mirror mobiles appeared on the cover of the publication, American Psychologist. Currently, Summer teaches privately and works out of her barn studio in Bucks County PA. Summers' most recent work portrays her inquiry into female identity experienced as a child, adolescent, and an adult and how it manifests both consciously and in the unconscious. summeryates.org
