Highlighting Artist, Kait Armstrong, P ’23.

Kait Armstrong will be exhibiting her original block prints in the Brown Gallery, February through May 31, 2020. This alphabet series, “A is for Alport Syndrome” focuses on various related elements of the disease.

“Alport Syndrome is a genetic disease which impacts the kidneys, inner ears, and eyes. This rare disease has been present in my family for generations. My son Patch has Alport Syndrome and my two daughters are affected to varying degrees as well. The”A is for Alport Syndrome” series began as an attempt to add levity to the seriousness of a chronic illness. We associate an alphabet story with the innocence of youth, but it is also useful as an organizational and educational tool.” – artist, Kait Armstrong

Kait Armstrong grew up in Vermont and has spent the last 20 years living in New Hampshire. Her interest in art and fabric began in early childhood. She attended Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia, where she graduated cum laude with a BFA in textile design with an emphasis in color theory. Kait’s current work is a balance between detailed and colorful embroidery done on hand-dyed textiles, and graphic wood or linocut prints that can be easily reproduced as postcards, zines and affordable works of art.
