Featured Artist Kathy Houghton

Opening Reception May 8th, 6-8pm

The Vagaband from Lafayette will be playing live for her show!

Kathy was born in Madison Wisconsin, and moved to Carmel, Indiana as a child. She married her childhood sweetheart in 1975. They lived in Indianapolis, and Carmel for many years, until their children were grown. After 6 years in Wisconsin, Kathy and her husband moved back to Indiana settling in Crawfordsville.

Kathy had the great fortune to begin art training at Highland High School, in Highland, Indiana, which has always had an excellent art department. She owes a debt of gratitude to those instructors and mentors who were so instrumental in providing her with a solid foundation on which to develop her skills.

Kathy is currently working in her studio full time, unless distracted by her four grandsons, or her gardens. Kathy's gardening passion provides her with unending subject matter and inspiration. The grandsons are mostly just joy and entertainment.

While traveling locally and across the country, she is always on the lookout for motivation. As each piece is finished, she hopes that she has conveyed some of the love, appreciation, and respect that she has for nature.
