Art Historian Katherine Zoraster
Modern Art Invasion: The 1913 Armory Show That Scandalized America
At the start of the 20th century, the art scene in New York severely lagged its European counterpart. Within forty years time, New York had become the center of the art world. The crucial event that kickstarted this shift was the 1913 Armory Show, the most important art exhibit in the history of the United States. Tonight we will take a look at this unprecedented and revolutionary exhibition that changed art in America.
Katherine E. Zoraster is an Art Historian and a Professor of Art History at several local colleges specializing in Western art from the Renaissance to the 20th century. She graduated with a double major in English Literature and Art History from the University of California, Los Angeles. Following her undergraduate degree, she received a Master’s Degree with Distinction in Art History from the California State University at Northridge.
In addition to the courses Katherine teaches for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute through UCLA Extension and California State University at Channel Islands, she also works as an Adjunct Professor of Art History at Moorpark College and an Art History Instructor for the full-time program at the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Arts. Recently she has also begun teaching Art History at the new 50 and Better program through Cal Lutheran and teaches a weekly class on different artists and artistic styles at The Village Senior Living Facility in Sherman Oaks.
She is a member of the Art Muse team, giving private museum tours and teaching classes.
In the past few years, Katherine has presented papers at The Representational Art Conference and at the College Arts Association on various topics.
Katherine also serves as a commissioner for the Burbank Cultural Arts Commission and volunteers at the Burbank Animal Shelter. In her free time Katherine is an avid runner and enjoys traveling.
