A daughter of noted art historian George Kubler, Cornelia Kavanagh taught herself to carve stone in the modernist tradition of Moore, Hepworth and Arp, before developing a style of her own characterized by rounded sensual shapes. She has been widely exhibited in galleries and museums in the US and abroad, including the Smithsonian in Washington, DC, The Peabody-Essex Museum in Salem, MA, the American Museum of Natural History in New York and the Yale Peabody Museum in New Haven. She has also had 5 solo shows in New York while a member of Blue Mountain Gallery. In 2005, Kavanagh represented the US Virgin Islands Council on the Arts at the Venice Biennale with an exhibition that referenced her father’s seminal treatise on art history, “The Shape of Time.”
