Katie Kaplan is a visual artist born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, currently living and working in Philadelphia. In her current multi-disciplinary practice, she has a focus on exploring printmaking at the intersection of sculpture, installation, fiber arts, photography, and video. Her current focus in printmaking is creating a personal language of symbols that draw from mythology, art history, western esotericism, religious iconography, girl culture, herbalist and plant folklore, all reimagined through personal narrative and queer femme lens.
She has shown work in solo and group exhibitions at galleries, community spaces, and print shops across the United States. Recent accomplishments include completion of the Post-Graduate Apprentice Training Program at the Fabric Workshop and Museum, the Cindi Royce Ettinger Scholarship at Second State Press, a teaching artist grant from The Picasso Project, and The Denbo Fellowship at Pyramid Atlantic Art Center. Currently, she is an Artist in Residence at 40th Street AIRSPACE in West Philadelphia. For over six years, she has worked as a professional teaching artist and community artist, work that is critical and intrinsic to her art practice as a whole. Kaplan received a BFA with Honors and Outstanding Merit in Sculpture from Pratt Institute in 2011.
