Caroline Ennis ’16

MOBILE, Ala. – University of Mobile alumna Caroline Ennis presents her free ‘Uncharted Blue’ art talk in the Marilyn Foley Art Gallery on Oct. 11 at 1:30 p.m. with a reception to follow.

The talk is the conclusion of her month-long exhibit located at Ben May Hall on the University of Mobile campus, 5735 College Pkwy, Mobile, Ala. 36613.

Caroline Ennis is a visual artist whose work stems from her life-long relationship to the Gulf Coast and the coastline of the northwest Florida Panhandle. She uses installation and sculptural methods that include ceramic, fiber, drawing and unfired clay to explore ways to reflect the coastline’s familiarity and the obscurity of the deep water.

Ennis completed her Bachelor of Arts in studio art from the University of Mobile in 2016 and Master of Fine Arts from Florida State University in 2020. In 2019, Ennis attended a funded artist residency at Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts. While at FSU, Ennis received the 2019 MFA Award, the 2020 Ceramics Award, the 2020 MFA Award, and was nominated for the International Sculpture Center’s Outstanding Student Achievement Award in Contemporary Sculpture.
