1h 15m · Published 05 Dec 17:26

Welcome to episode 70 of I Like Art Podcast! Host Sara Glupker is honored and so excited to share this interview with her former college Professor Cat Crotchett of Kalamazoo, Michigan. Learn about how Cat Crotchett pursued her calling for art, how she balances her time in the studio, being a full-time professor, motherhood and life, and hear her advice for anyone who is considering a career in the arts. This conversation will not only help you learn more about this incredibly talented contemporary artist, but it will also inspire you to follow your creative pursuits and honor those creative nudges.

Thank you so much for tuning in to this week’s episode and please check out all of the links below to get to know Cat more, see her amazing art, and find ways to connect.

About the artist:

Cat Crotchett has been a professional artist for over 30 years. In her paintings, she uses patterns to vividly represent human emotions and experience, and to convey not just beauty but tension. Her current work represents an intersection of information, emotion and physical limitations. The patterns and colors inhabit spaces that are similar, but not the same- suggesting multiple realities in the same composition. Each composition is engaged in some form of conflict, suggesting our shared moment in American history, our creative resilience, and transformative struggles.

Cat has been a regular presenter and instructor at the International Encaustic Conference in Provincetown, Massachusetts, and has taught painting workshops in the United States and in Indonesia.

Cat earned BFAs in Painting and Art History from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, and an MFA in Art from Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio. She has an extensive exhibition record that includes solo exhibitions at Vanderbilt University, the University of Illinois Chicago, the Maryland Institute of Art and Barbaran Segaragunung Gallery in Yogyakarta, Java, Indonesia. In addition, she has a considerable record of international and national group exhibitions, has been recognized through various grants and has been a fellow at several artist colonies- including a 2022 Golden Foundation for the Arts experimental residency. Her work is represented in numerous private and public collections. She was the 2021 Distinguished Faculty Scholar at Western Michigan University, and 2015 College of Fine Arts Roehrick Distinguished Professor also at WMU. She teaches painting in the Gwen Frostic School of Art. Cat lives and works in Kalamazoo, Michigan. She is represented by Addington Gallery in Chicago, IL.
