    Kathryn Frey
    Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Kathryn Frey is a trained classical ballet dancer. Her visual art practice is deeply informed by dance and the body’s integral role in producing and conferring meaning. Her thesis project, Variations on a Theme of Butterflies, is a collection of sculptures, drawings, home videos, and performative narrations. While the project memorializes the death of a little girl’s fantasies of becoming a ballerina, Variations ultimately tells a story of transformation and reveals how the dream of dancing has remained alive. ​​
