Kate Egnaczak

Kate Egnaczak is a conceptual eco-artist. She grew up on a 68 farm in the Berkshires and brings that experience into her process as a maker. Her hybrid artistic approach practice is at the intersections of design thinking, sculptural methods, and anthropological fieldwork. Centering circularity as a guiding principle, Kate explores the complex interdependence of all life forms and waste. The most prominent example of this body of work is her multi-year durational exploration of the mere ponds of Elm Park in Worcester, MA. In this project, she found and collected trash and other debris from her paddle board. She considers the garbage she finds as treasured art-making materials. The materials are transformed and re-interpreted into sculptures and collages.

Renee Knowles

Renee Knowles is a multimedia artist with a focus on photography, ceramics, and the art of storytelling. She is passionate about art education and finds herself happiest while teaching.
