Professor of Art Katharine Kuharic was recently awarded an Emily Harvey Foundation Residency in Venice, Italy. Beginning in mid-January, she will spend six weeks in Venice, with the foundation providing the living/working space.
As described on the Emily Harvey Foundation website, the residency is for “innovative international artists, writers, musicians, videographers, dancers and other creative thinkers in mid to late career.” It is named for Emily Kreis Harvey, “a New York gallerist known for her support of the international avant-garde community” who died in 2004.
Kuharic has previously been a Rockefeller Fellow at Bellagio, a Gyeonggi Fellow in Korea, and a Milton and Sally Avery Fellow at MacDowell in New Hampshire.
She currently has a painting titled “Long Wait” on display in Even a Cat Can Look at the Queen, a group exhibition that runs through Jan. 6 at Mrs. Gallery in Maspeth, N.Y.
