Katherine Venturelli, MFA

Venturelli is an artist and teacher nationally and internationally recognized for unique or varied edition artist books and fine prints produced from her printmaking studio in Sutter Creek, CA. The work is represented in many prestigious collections including the Palace of the Legion of Honor (San Francisco); the Getty Research Center in L.A., Museum of Fine Arts, Santa Fe; Walker Art Center (Minneapolis); Crocker Art Museum (Sacramento), and the Special Collections of U.S.C, Mills College, and the Univ. of WA; and the Reva and David Logan Collection.

Inspired by the power of symbol, universal order and meditative intimacy, she explores artist book forms and integrates etched copper plates into her book structures. "My artwork depends upon the power of imagery which is recognizable symbols or metaphors that are universally archetypal."

Venturelli is an adjunct art instructor for Los Rios Community College District. She has been a member of the Artist Book Council of the Museum of Fine Arts of S.F., the California Sociaety of Printmakers, and the Pacific Center for the Book Arts. In 1991 she was the recipient of a California Arts Council grant.

Her work has been noted in over 300 exhibitions, which include the 2001 California Palace of the Legion of Honor's Contemporary California Works on Paper, and her work has been published in several printmaking books, such as 100 Santa Fe Etchers.

Besides working in her printmaking studio in the Sierra Foothill city of Sutter Creek over the past 30 years, Katherine has had the opportunity to work in Joel Greene's printmaking studio in Santa Fe, NM.

The artist is represented by Larry Warnock Fine Arts, Seager-Gray Gallery, and Vamp and Tramp Booksellars.
