American, 1941 - Present
Katherine Porter was born in 1941 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She received a BA from Colorado College and an honorary doctorate from Colby College and Bowdoin College, both in Maine. She also studied at Boston University, where her teachers included Conger Metcalf and Walter Tandy Murch. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in 1963. Porter was active in Boston's artistic community during much of the 1960s. She was part of The Studio Coalition in Boston’s South End, combining artistic and political concerns. In 1971 she held her first solo exhibitions and sold her first work to collector Betty Parsons.
She has shown twice in the Whitney Biennial and solo exhibitions at the Knoedler Gallery in London, the Nina Nielsen Gallery in Boston, the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, Massachusetts, and the Andre Emmerich Gallery in New York. Her work is in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMA, The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Whitney in New York, Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the Tel Aviv Museum in Jerusalem.
Porter is considered one of the most important contemporary artists associated with Maine, where she currently resides and works to this day.
