Sixth-generation Texan Kathy Tate began drawing and painting at an early age and later studied drafting and architectural design in college. With a love of family history and antiques, much of her still life work contains objects in her collection of antiques. Some of these items came with her family to Texas as members of Stephen F. Austin’s Old 300 in the early 1800s. Tate’s work also reflects her love of old and abandoned home sites and other structures. A recent trip to Egypt has also been a major influence in her newest works.
Upcoming shows include the Bosque Arts Center Online Fine Art Auction; The Russell Exhibition and Sale; Looking West: An Exhibition Highlighting Works by American Women Artists at the Steamboat Art Museum, in Steamboat Springs, Colorado; and Miniatures by the Lake at Coeur d’alene Galleries in Idaho. Recently Tate’s painting Once Someone’s Dream was awarded the prestigious John Steven Jones Award at the Bosque Art Classic.
Her work has been featured in Small Works, Great Wonders at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, The Russell Exhibition & Sale at the C.M. Russell Museum, Briscoe Western Art Museum’s Night of Artists, Mountain Oyster Club, Oil Painters of America and many shows throughout the U.S.
