In connection with the Global Conference Women and Ritual Acts, an interdisciplinary view on Women, Marriage and the Household from Antiquity to the Present, the Gallery of Art of Temple University Rome is pleased to present the exhibition Do You Know Her, by the artist Katherine Krizek. The show will open on Friday, May 13 and will run through May 31.
Favoring the medium of portraiture, artist Katherine Krizek promotes awareness of women who deserve to be remembered and who have inspired us with their lives, but who are often little known to the general public. The works are a hybrid of traditional mediums such as painting and freehand drawing and digital techniques and are created on different materials and backgrounds. On the website http://DoYouKnowHer.org the public can follow the project in its entirety.
Katherine Krizek is an American artist, designer and teacher living and working in Rome Italy. Her work explores the relationship between art and design, combining traditional image making with new technology.
Her art and design has received awards in the US and Italy including a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship, and selection for the Italian Compasso d’oro. Her design work is represented in the Cooper-Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
Apparent in her work is the love of traditional tools such as drawing and painting born from her fine arts experience at Parsons School of Design, visible too is the conceptual nature and influence of her architectural studies at The Cooper Union.
