Guess what day it is, listeners….Blind Date Day! Or, as most of you know it, Wednesday!
Once again, the Traughbers welcome me into their home. This time around, I sit with Katy Traughber. Katy is currently enrolled in the BFA Program at IUS over in New Albany. She is really drawn to objects with a past or hold a record of time, though the materials she works with and the forms they take are dependent on inspiration. Much of her muse consist of coming from a family who created out of necessity, parenting, and open communications with her children and husband. As you’ll hear in the interview she’s tried photography, music, sculpting, installation, and painting. Currently, you can find a small collection of Katy’s work at Dragon King’s Daughter’s New Albany location. Be sure to check it out; it runs through the rest of October.
You can keep up with Katy by visiting katytraughber.blogspot.com. You can hear the interview right below.
Oh, by the way, Blind Date is sponsoring its first ever event! It will be a showcase of art with a focus on music and film.
