Petra Kralickova divides her time between creating her own artwork and working as a Director of Exhibitions at Ohio University School of Art Galleries, and a curator at Kennedy Museum of Art.

Kralickova exhibited her sculptural installations at galleries such as Black and White Gallery (Brooklyn, NYC), Smack Mellon (Brooklyn, NYC), Tacoma Contemporary (Tacoma, WA), and Sculpture Center, (Cleveland, OH).
