Kate Grendler is a recent graduate of Appalachian with a double major in English and Philosophy. She lives and works in Boone, and creates works in oil on canvas and found wood. The artist says, "The Playground is an ongoing collection of art that appeals to the child-like wonderer and wanderer. Abstract shapes, designs, and colors encourage personal interpretation and imagination. I almost never have a clear idea of what I'm going to paint, when I sit down with a blank canvas. The process itself, reminds me of playing, I play with the colors, lines, and shapes, hence the Playground."
