Kate E. Austin News


First things first - Hopefully this isn't coming across as spam. You may have signed up at an art show or event for the newsletter, or perhaps I know you in person or came across your business card and added you to the list. I'll be mailing a newsletter periodically, whenever there’s news to be shared! If at any time you wish to be removed from the newsletter mailing list, reply to this e-mail or write to with "Unsubscribe" in the subject line.


On October first, I moved into a studio in The Shirt Factory at the corner of Lawrence and Cooper Streets in Glens Falls. I'm sharing the space with Casey The Candy Thief, Zack Zoll and Heidi Price. Come by sometime to check it out! It’s on the third floor, studio #307. We’re having an open studio on November 2nd – details below. Pictures of the studio are on the website,

Also, I was voted in as Co-President of the North Country Arts Center at their annual members’ meeting. I'm very proud to be elected and hope I can do my best to kickstart the organization! We’re welcoming new faces, so please be in touch if you’re interested in membership.


There have been new images uploaded to the gallery, and there’s a blog that’s updated frequently at Artwork for sale is being listed at the etsy store almost every day. Check these sites out to see some new stuff!


The show at Rock Hill Bakehouse ended at the beginning of October after a two-month run. I received many compliments and know that a wide audience was reached because of this location - special thanks to Matt Funiciello of Rock Hill for the show, to Cory Avon for the live music at the receptions, and to CE Skidmore for helping to publicize. Upcoming and current shows – all open to the public - are as follows:
