Beth Krebs lives and works in Oakland. Her work celebrates the earnest, heroic, and usually botched human efforts at transcendence. She explores this subject, with humor and empathy, by transforming physical spaces and by making sculptural objects and drawings. She has exhibited her installations in galleries and alternative spaces in New York, San Francisco and abroad, including the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), Mixed Greens, Smack Mellon, the Bronx Museum of Art, Station Independent Projects, the Cue Foundation, Real Artways, Minnesota Street Projects, and Kala. She was awarded a grant from the Buchegger Foundation to fund an installation in Augsburg, Germany in 2012. She has been an artist in residence at the MacDowell Colony, the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, the Jentel Colony, Sculpture Space, and the Bemis Center. She was a recipient of a Joan Mitchell Foundation MFA Grant upon graduation from Rutgers University in 2004.
