2020 Members Only Exhibition

May 1st - June 5th, 2020

The son of a harpsichord making pharmacist and a political activist school teacher, Louis Katz is part clayer, and part musician, with many other “parts”. He received his undergraduate degree from The Kansas City Art Institute and his MFA from Montana State University. He is the current chair of the Department of Art and Design and a Professor of Ceramics at Texas A&M University in Corpus Christi.

He has been a resident artist at The Archie Bray Foundation, The New York Experimental Glass Workshop, and LH Projects. Last summer he was a visiting artist at Yumikobo Gallery and Okayama Prefecture University in Japan. 

In 1988-89 Louis Katz received a Fulbright Research Fellowship to document Thai Pottery from the point of view of an artist. He has given lectures and workshops at many Thai institutions, and conferences. He speaks and reads Thai. 


Louis is well known for a Flame Throwing Pipe Organ. He built the apparatus, played and tuned the pipes. In tuning it is needed to be able to hear beat frequencies. The moire’ patterns in his work in this exhibition are in effect diagrams of 2 dimensional beat frequencies.

The work in this exhibition is entirely digital. It was created in Adobe Photoshop.
