Kate Stapleton Parzych: Currents

April 19th – May 25th, 2013, Opening Reception May 10th, 6-9pm


Kate Stapleton Parzych is a visual artist and arts educator workingin digital and darkroom photography, using many of her images for bookmaking.  She is an adjunct professor at Daemen College and D’Youville College, has taught at University at Buffalo where she received her MFA, and conducts workshops at WNYBAC and CEPA.  Parzych was a participant in the NYFA MARK 10 Program, and recent shows include the Flux Gallery at CEPA in 2012 as a Members’ Exhibition “Best of Show” recipient and Hallwalls
recent Vascular Modes.

During her residency, Kate will experiment with various papers as a substrate for cyanotypes, a process that is an amalgam of photo-based (light sensitive) materials and printmaking. She will be recording text, images, and objects onto paper as a documentation of transformation. A cumulative show that will grow during her residency, new pieces will be hung each week until the end of the exhibit – a dynamic extrapolation of process and product, most of which will be produced in the WNYBAC studio.
