Katie Merz | Turntable
Planthouse is pleased to publish Tin Pan Alley sweatshirts by Katie Merz. Screenprinted at Kingsland Inc. in Brooklyn, the Turntable edition is a nod to the gallery’s home on 28th Street, the strip between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, which historically housed the city’s musicians, shops, and music publishers in the early twentieth century.
Influenced by Brooklyn, cartoons, architecture, and the kinetic structure of things, Katie Merz’s work ranges from delicate line drawings to abstract paintings and sculptures.
MERZ earned her BFA from the Cooper Union School of Art. She has exhibited nationally, including at the Brooklyn Museum. She is a recipient of the Pollock Krasner Grant, The Oberman Center Collaborative grant, and has been a fellow at the Chinati Foundation and the Macdowell Colony. She has recently been awarded The Augustus Saint-Gaudens lifetime achievement award from The Cooper Union School of Art and is in their Alumni Hall of Fame.
