Edwige Charlot '10

In my eyes, artists from the beginning of time have been thought of as leaders and activists.

Born and raised in Paris, France of Haitian heritage, Edwige Charlot emigrated to the United States at the age of 9. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in printmaking with honors from the Maine College of Art & Design. Recently, Edwige led a printmaking art project with the Edmunds Consolidated Schools in Edmunds, ME and participated in several group shows that explored issues of race, including The Other Side of Shade and Undoing Racism in the Joanne Waxman Library.

Edwige is a practicing artist who exhibits and sells her work. She received the Emerging Artist Award from the St. Botolph Society and a Good Idea Grant from the Maine Arts Commission. She was an artist-in-residence at The Tides Institute, The Vermont Studio Center, and The Quimby Colony.

Her nonprofit arts administration experience includes serving as Program Associate for Creative Portland and Program Director at Engine. She is the owner of Creative Approach Co., a consulting firm providing strategy for creatives.
