Kate Sable American, b. 1984

Kate Sable's paintings of curvilinear and gridded abstract forms are an ongoing investigation between analytical and intuitive use of color, line, gesture, and shape. Her practice directly engages personal metaphor and inquiry, while remaining strongly grounded in the painting process.


Sable was recently included in DREAM JOURNAL, a three-person exhibition curated by Alex Ebstein at Goucher College (Baltimore, MD), and a two-person exhibition at Equilateral Gallwry (Los Angeles, California) curated by Sam Scharf.  Recent group exhibitions include Slowly and a Soft Speaker at SHOEBOX SPACE in New York, We Go Fast curated by Ryan Travis Christian at Left Field Gallery (Los Osos, CA), I Like Your Work Podcast’s juried exhibition Be.Long at Dutoit Gallery (Dayton, OH), and Hen House’s All Female Tiny Show (Washington, DC). Her work is included in the Spring Issue 17 of ArtMaze Magazine and was also featured in the curatorial project Air in Space with the release Blurring All the Lines, and also the publication Friend of the Artist (Volume 8). She was recently included in the curated drop HOT PAPER X CHARLIE ROBERTS, for GIFC Worldwide, and was a guest on I Like Your Work Podcast, interviewed by Erika Hess. Reviews include The Washington Post, Washington City Paper, Two Coats of Paint, among others.


Originally from Virginia, Sable earned a BFA from Virginia Tech and MFA from American University in Washington, DC. She lives and works just outside of Washington, DC in Reston, VA
