BIOGRAPHY
Katherine Liepe-Levinson trained with the International Center for Photography (ICP) in New York City (2008-2012). Her work has been featured on journal, magazine, and book covers, as well as in Dan’s Papers and the Southampton Press. She was selected by the Joseph Gallery for the Hampton Art Market 2019 and NYCExpo 2020 at Pier 94. Last year she was honored to be part of the four women exhibition at the Alex Ferrone Gallery, “Women on Water.” Her works were juried into The Other Art Fair Brooklyn Expo Center 2018, sponsored by the Saatchi Art Gallery. Katherine’s photography was twice chosen for the annual juried pop-up show, “Endangered Miami” (2016, 2015), during Art Miami/Art Basel Week. Her photography continues to exhibited in multiple Long Island and New York art venues, including the Alex Ferrone Gallery (awarded first place in the juried show “Water” (2017-18), East End Arts (twice Best in Show Winner and other awards), The Art League of Long Island, Guild Hall, Richard Demato Gallery, the White Room Gallery, Thirty West Main, Rosalie Dimon Gallery, and the Southampton Cultural Center. Clients have included museums, private collectors, and business corporations.

In addition to photography, Katherine worked as a professional dancer and actor on and off Broadway. She earned a PhD in Theatre from New York City’s CUNY Graduate Center (1993), and taught full-time for Colgate University and Hunter College (1993-2000).In 2001, Katherine founded and directed Muse Educational Resources, Inc. She was awarded a competitive NYCBOE vendor contract for her arts education program to help public school teachers more effectively handle challenging issues such as bullying, HIV/AIDS prevention, and cultural diversity (2001-2010). Katherine is now working to promote the preservation of our natural resources and other socially relevant topics through her photography. She began focusing on the visual arts after her participation as an artist-player in Tino Sehgal’s acclaimed performance art piece, “This Situation 2007-8 New York City,” presented at the Marian Goodman Gallery.

ARTIST STATEMENT
My on-going Earth/Water Series is an exploration of our local New York and Long Island waterways. These studies are testaments to the preciousness of our natural resources. The unusual vibrant colors and patterns in these almost abstract works are produced through available light, selected camera angles, shifting wind patterns on the water and in the foliage, refracted reflections on the water surface, and fast shutter speeds.
