Statement

Coit’s career as a professional multi-media artist spans nearly fifty years and has produced numerous series in media including sprayed-oil paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, video projection, writing, performance, and neon pieces.  The environment in flux influences her work and often is the direct subject.  John Carver of THE Magazine said "Her works are open-ended, yet tightly crafted. They are also poignant and ring of truth."

Coit is preparing for an upcoming solo exhibition at the Center for Contemporary Art in Santa Fe. Her work has been exhibited locally at SITE Santa Fe, the New Mexico Museum of Art, the Community Gallery at the Convention Center, AXLE Contemporary, Gerald Peters gallery, James Kelly Contemporary, Zane-Bennett, Evo gallery, and nationally at the Salt Lake Art Center, the Slater Museum, Los Angeles County Museum, the Hammer Museum, the San Antonio Art Institute and the Anchorage Museum of Art.

She was awarded residencies at the UCross Foundation and Jentel and was selected for the Creative Capitol Professional Development Program Workshop in Santa Fe in 2006.

Her work has been included many times at Art Santa Fe, an International Contemporary Art Fair and in Currents, the Santa Fe International New Media Festival.  Her work is in the collections of the State of New Mexico, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the Skirball Museum in Los Angeles, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Santa Fe, and has been featured in publications such as THE Magazine, ARTnews, and Artweek.  She received her BFA from the University of Connecticut.
