Many times in these two weeks I ventured out, my easel awkward and heavy on my back, only to get caught up in looking and exploring, not stopping to paint, discovering the granite bridges and stairs, a strange human order in the wilderness, among unexpected waterfalls and thick, impassible undergrowth. I climbed to ten of Acadia’s summits, following cairns silhouetted stark against the sky.
– Kathy Hodge
Kathy Hodge was born in Providence, Rhode Island. At the age of 14 she took up her parents’ oil paints, put aside since they graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design and started their family of seven children. Like her parents, she attended RISD and majored in painting. After two years she found it necessary to leave school and work for a year to finance her education. She earned her BFA at Swain School of Design in New Bedford, MA.
