Margaret Coleman completed her BFA at the University of Minnesota in 2005 and her MFA at Pratt Institute in 2009. Her graduate education focused in the New Forms of Art program, in which she received both honors and achievement awards. She has also garnered several accolades for her artwork and her work with the community, including the Jerome Foundation Fellowship and Residency for Lanesboro Art Center in 2005. She was a two-time recipient of the St Louis Park Arts and Culture Grant, 2007 and 2008, and returned this summer from a fellowship and residency in Iceland, where she spent three months creating work in a small fishing village.

One of her current projects includes starting a collectively run and sustainable artist residency program in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.

The four objects cast in black wax for No Assumptions will be cast in bronze at the end of the show.  They will be re-shown in a New Sincerity show in Spring.  The entirety of the work, including the transformation of the cast objects, wax in one show, bronze in another, is the work.
