Taking up residence in the Arts Retreat house during the first part of the summer of 2014 is visual artist Katie Rose Pipkin. During the early part of her residency, she has been focused on her drawings and has been quite productive amidst small town life in New York Mills.
Katie Rose Pipkin was born in Austin, Texas in the fall of 1990. She grew up in the woods, spent her adolescence in the suburbs, and has since migrated back to the woods. She holds a BFA from the University of Texas, was a founding member of Wardenclyffe Gallery, and is a member of collective Cloud to Ground. She has received generous support from The Texas Cultural Trust, Caldera Arts Center, The Texas Biennial, Joshua Tree Highland Houses, Austin Visual Arts Awards, and other institutions. She makes drawings with her hands, the internet, and sometimes her words. She is interested in working along the fault lines.
