Catherine Rodgers was born and raised in Little Rock and has been a full-time artist for the past twenty years. She strives to create unique and high-quality artworks that bring joy and wonder to each observer.
Experimenting with new mediums and problem solving are what bring her back to the studio virtually seven days a week. Recent artworks include the exploration of epoxy resin and Plexiglas, which produces a glass-like product that is transluscent and strong. Another recent body of work combines wood, wire and plaster creating sculptures that seem to float on the wall.
Catherine's artworks are held in hundreds of private and corporate collections nationwide. She has served as faculty for the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts (formerly the Arkansas Arts Center) since 2012, with a bit of a covid break. Exhibitions include the 55th Annual Delta Exhibition at the Arkansas Arts Center; "For the Love of Bees: Works in Hot Wax and Cold Wax," Arkansas Arts Center; "The Erudites," University of Arkansas at Little Rock; and the "Inaugural Exhibit at the Mississippi River Museum," in Tunica, Mississippi. Recently, she was selected as one of five Arkansas artists to create a major commissioned artwork for CARTI's new North Little Rock location with funding provided by the Windgate Foundation.
