Katie Waugh is a multi-disciplinary artist working primarily in photography, sculpture, and video. She earned her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and MA from Savannah College of Art and Design—Atlanta. Her recent work considers the ambivalence surrounding instances of structural collapse, as it may be thwarted, celebrated, used as a template for development, tokenized, or specifically induced.
Her work has been included in exhibitions throughout the US and internationally, including at the Art Gallery of Peterborough, Ontario, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta Georgia, and the Kauno Biennale in Kaunas, Lithuania. Her work has been featured in a solo exhibition at Alfred State College, and group exhibitions in recent years at the Torpedo Factory, Alexandria VA; Stone Quarry Hill Art Park, Cazenovia, NY; Northern Illinois University Art Museum, DeKalb, IL; Sweet Pass Sculpture Park, Dallas, TX; and ADDS DONNA, Chicago.
With roots planted deeply in the Great Lakes region, she currently serves as Head of the Art & Design Department at the University of Arkansas-Fort Smith.
