Katherine Nemanich received the Certificate in
Painting from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and
her B.A. cum laude in plastic and graphic arts from the University
of Illinois at Chicago.
Nemanich has two other abiding interests that
complement and inform her art. She continues to pursue her study
of literature and language by reading and by studying the evolution
of language and its written forms and symbols. She also maintains
a strong interest in music, having completed extensive studies
in music theory and performance. As a result of her love of
Renaissance and Baroque music, she built two harpsichords and
a clavichord, all replicas of 17th century keyboard instruments.
Form and content in Nemanichs art are often inspired by
listening to and performing music and thinking about musical
structure and gesture. Nemanich lives and works in Chicago.
