Kate Fleming is a painter, printmaker, and muralist based in Arlington, Virginia. She graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia in 2014. As an undergraduate, Kate received a prestigious Louis E. Catron Scholarship for Artistic Development, which allowed her to study painting in Sorrento, Italy through Maryland Institute College of Art’s rigorous Summer Intensive program. As an emerging artist, she has exhibited her work in juried shows throughout the East Coast, notably Emerging Artists Juried Show at The Drawing Room Gallery in Cos Cob, Connecticut, 2016 Hand-Pulled Prints at Site:Brooklyn in Brooklyn, New York, and The Contemporary Print at Flatbed Press in Austin, Texas, as a part of Print Austin 2017. She won first place in the Falls Church Arts Annual Plein Air Festival in 2015 and was awarded a 2016 Spotlight Artist Grant by Arlington County Cultural Affairs to paint a 110-foot long public mural. After successfully completing her public mural (and blog), Kate received a private commission for a second mural, which she completed in November of 2016. Kate has taught multiple drawing and painting classes for adults, focusing on working from observation, through Falls Church Arts in Falls Church, Virginia. Most recently, Kate completed a residency at Virginia Center for the Creative Arts in Amherst, Virginia, where she began to develop her work in collage.
