New exhibit at Block Island Airport Gallery features contemporary artist Kate Aitchison

The gallery at the Block Island Airport, a partnership between the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA) and the Rhode Island Airport Corporation (RIAC), announced the opening of its spring exhibit featuring works by contemporary artist Kate Aitchison. Aitchison’s art focuses on print media incorporating her handmade paper. The prints will be on display through June 21.
Aitchison is an artist who lives and works in Providence and Utah. Her work is centered around the ideas of landscape and the human interventions in the natural landscape, especially regarding the manipulation of water and ecologies. Working with paper she makes herself from invasive plant species and recycled materials collected from site-specific areas, she utilizes the medium of printmaking to work though iterations of landscapes changed by human actions.
Aitchison has a BA in Studio Art from Colorado College and an MFA in Printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design. She is currently a professor of art at Colorado College and RISD, and hosts workshops throughout the country including the Telluride Ah Ha School for the Arts, Prescott College, AS220 and more.
