Event Details

The Evansville Museum Gift Shop will host Katherine Fries on Thursday, August 2, 2018 from 6:00–8:00 PM.

Appetizers and a cash bar will be available.

Oral history and heirlooms have fascinated Katherine Fries since her childhood of listening to stories about her family and their friends. Her paintings reflect the nostalgia and objects that entertained her imagination growing up as well as her prints preserve the narrative between memory and substance.

Raised in Lincoln, Nebraska, Katherine Fires earned her BFA and MA at the University of Indianapolis and MFA at Miami University. She teaches art at the University of Indianapolis and has a studio in the Harrison Center for the Arts. Her artwork will be on display from August 2-September 16, 2018 in the Begley Art Gallery in the Eykamp Pavilion.
