The second segment of this week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features Kate Shepherd. Her work is included in the group show “The Artist’s Palette: The Primary Colors on Paper” at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. It’s on view through June 2. Many images of Shepherd’s work are available at her website.
This print, Circling Around Yellow, Bigmouth (2010), is one of the Shepherd’s in MFAH’s show (and in MFAH’s collection). Shepherd made it as a benefit for the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas. (Cost: $2,000.) On this program, Shepherd and host Tyler Green talk about her interest in the primary colors.
Shepherd’s work has been the subject of exhibitions at the Chinati Foundation and at The Phillips Collection. Her work is in the collection of museums such as the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Seattle Art Museum.
