Artist Interview: Kate Frazer Rego

Words of the day: inspiration. threshold. aging. narrative. nuance.

New Bedford, MA based artist Kate Frazer Rego is this episode's guest. Kate shares how it was important to receive support in her younger years as an artist. As a result, she knew early on that 3-dimensional work was where she was headed. Though Kate does also make text based paintings to extend her subject matter (see below).
Plenty of good art name-drops in this one, and one great quote from Langston Hughes. Listen below for more!  (some strong language, just a heads-up!)

in between.”

-Langston Hughes
