Kate Hooray Osmond (MFAST ’19) named Griffith-Reyburn Lowcountry Artist of the Year 2017

Kate Hooray Osmond has been named Griffith-Reyburn Lowcountry Artist of the Year by the Coastal Community Foundation of South Carolina.

In conjunction with this award, an exhibition of 20 new paintings by Osmond will be on view at the Redux Contemporary Art Center in Charleston. The show, titled “Get Low”, runs through November 10. For more information, click here.

Osmond’s paintings – depictions of industry and coastlines from aerial view – offer a different perspective “from how we usually view our life.” She continues, “we go through life each day and drive on streets that are familiar; when we get to view a bigger picture of that daily experience, things shift inside of us.”
