Kate Hooray Osmond
Kate Hooray Osmond is an American painter and installation artist based Charleston, SC. She is best known for her large-scale paintings with bold colors and gold leaf overlay. Her paintings are inspired by source images she takes from helicopters. One of Osmond's favorite things about viewing a city from above is the juxtaposition of the natural and the man-made, often sitting back-to-back with one another. She was named the State Fellow for South Carolina by the SouthArts Commission 2018 and Lowcountry Artist of the Year 2017. Kate is an MFA candidate at Maryland Institute College of Art. She exhibits internationally and her work is found in private collections as well as public, notably the College of Charleston and HBO Productions.
