Artist Spotlight: Katie Hector

How long have you worked in the Gowanus neighborhood?

I have worked in Gowanus for one year.  I was motivated to establish my studio here because of the location and access to natural light.

Is there an aspect of Gowanus that inspires you?

The residential family-oriented environment is a calming respite from the bustle of Manhattan and other parts of Brooklyn.

Why should people visit your studio during Gowanus Open Studios 2016?

Over the past year, I have created work that references internet culture and technological interfaces. I will have glass work, drawings, and wall sculptures on display during GOS 2016
