Outstanding Undergraduate Students
Amadea Katz was born in 1999 in Colorado Springs, CO. She currently studies at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs and will receive her BA in Visual Arts in the summer of 2022. From the humble beginnings of comic-style drawing, Katz has expanded her practice to include an array of painting, sculpture, live performance and video art exploring femininity, memory and the body. Katz exhibited her first body of work in Specter, a collaborative show at UCCS's Heller Center for the Arts and Humanities, and recently displayed work in The Art Show at the same location. Katz will be featured in several shows in the upcoming months, including Elevate, a group show at UCCS's Galleries of Contemporary Art, and Chronic, a solo exhibition at the Heller Center. Katz currently works as a framer, and plans to have a long, chaotic, nomadic career filling various positions in contemporary art galleries. Katz currently lives and creates in her hometown of Colorado Springs.
