Fresh Gallery presents Featured Artist Katelyn Butler, 2014 winner of the Fresh Air Open Juried Competition. In April 2014, Fresh Gallery was thrilled to host a juried competition featuring 2-D and 3-D works. From that competition emerged jewelry artist Katelyn Butler. A student at Missouri State University, Butler is completing her BFA and is expected to graduate in spring 2015. The winner of the 2014 Women’s Jewelry Association Designer/Creator scholarship, and both the Nancy Lumpee Pate and Mayme C. Hamilton scholarships, Butler is also the recipient of the 2014 SNAG student scholarship to attend the annual conference. Her work has been included in juried exhibitions in the USA and Japan. “As an undergraduate, my primary focus has been to challenge my technical abilities while employing a sense of visual aesthetic. I want people to respond to my work by looking very closely. I am also concerned with the idea of impermanence, and the immortal nature of the material that I work with in relation to the ephemerality of my own body. Because of the unyielding nature of the material, I am constantly required to flex my own intentions in order to abide by the temperament of the material” Butler says.
