Sky Pape (b. Canada) has been exhibiting in the United States and abroad since the mid-1980s. Her work, most recently acquired by the Sheldon Museum of Art in Nebraska, is in public, corporate, and private collections internationally. Pape’s honors and awards include grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the Canada Council for the Arts, and residency fellowships in Italy at the Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Center, and at the Bogliasco Foundation’s Liguria Study Center for the Arts & Humanities. Until 2000, Pape maintained a parallel career in scientific research, primarily in the fields of schizophrenia, genetics, and traumatic brain injury.  She is an avid naturalist often found with binoculars glued to her face. Pape is represented by June Kelly Gallery in New York.
