The Department of Art and Art History is honored that our 2nd Kirk Visiting Artist will be Katherine Taylor who received her BFA at the Atlanta college of Art and MFA from Georgia State University. Taylor contributes as Assistant Professor at Kennesaw State University and participates in mentorship programs for emerging artists in Atlanta.
Twice featured in New American Paintings, her work is the topic for review in numerous books and publications including Art Papers, The Boston Globe and newly published Painted Landscapes: Contemporary Views. Taylor’s paintings examine the visual relationships that mediate our experiences of disaster in the natural world. Her exhibitions include the Quebec City Biennale; The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center ; Diverseworks, Houston, TX; The Albany Museum of Art, Georgia; The Tubman Museum; Brenau University; and Marietta Cobb Museum of Art.
She is the recipient of a 2013 Vermont Studio Fellowship, and a 2012/13 WAP grant winner for the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia with a solo exhibition at MOCA GA in November. Her work “Deluge: Atlanta Flooding/ Roadway” is currently on view at the High Museum in Drawing Inside the Perimeter. Taylor is represented by Marcia Wood Gallery.
Taylor visited as a painting professor in 2011, and the 2012 seniors purchased one of her paintings for the Seniors Select works to distinguish their class in the College Permanent Art Collection. It currently hangs in Alston Student Center. She has also been represented in several of the Dalton Gallery exhibitions.
