Faces Of New Bedford – #01: Kat Knutsen
Meet Kat Knutsen, a resident of downtown New Bedford. Kat moved to New Bedford from Asheville, NC to attend UMASS Dartmouth where she earned her Masters degree in Fine Arts.
“After graduating I took notice of the concentrated art scene in this area and started a local art publication called The Siren (https://www.facebook.com/TheSirenNB) as a way to document and promote the arts in this area. Also after graduating I was invited back to UMass Dartmouth to be an artist in residence in fibers. My current work revolves around multi media in combining knitting, painting, animation and music production.”
She is very excited to see the direction that New Bedford is moving in and hopes to be a part of molding it into what it will become.
