Juror Lindsay Ketterer Gates is a studio artist from Milford, Pennsylvania. She was awarded a 2005 Individual Creative Artists Fellowship by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. Her work is exhibited and collected internationally.
“My current body of work focuses on transforming mundane materials into something extraordinary. I combine my love of textile techniques, fashion design and everyday materials to create works of texture and grace. Necklines, fasteners, ruffles, pleats and decoration of traditional costumes from around the globe inspire me. I draw from my own vocabulary to create interesting patterns and textures from various materials used in repetition. My aim is for the viewer to find the finished products both elegant and curious.”
