Podcast Episode 147: Kate Frazer Rego – LGBTQ+
Welcome, Kate Frazer Rego, an artist, and educator living in the South Coast of Massachusetts. She attended the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth College of Visual and Performing Art, where she earned a BFA in Sculpture. Kate went on to earn her MFA from Boston University’s College of Fine Art.
She has shown her work nationally and is currently in several private collections. Kate Frazer Rego was included in the group show, “Beyond Binary” (February 2 – April 6, 2023) at Bristol Community College’s Grimshaw-Gudewicz Gallery. Her work spans multiple media including sculpture, installation, mixed media, painting, performance, and puppetry.
Kate has been an art educator in public charter schools and art organizations across the South Coast for the past ten years. Her pedagogy focuses on process, building strong studio habits within her scholars, and art history through a lens of inclusion and social justice. When she’s not teaching for the Commonwealth, she’s holed up in her studio with a cup of coffee.
The Artists Index Podcast Host and co-founder, Ron Fortier, talks with Kate Frazer Rego about her life, background, the LGBTQ+ creative community, life, and lots more. This episode was recorded in 2023. The Artists Index continues using Zoom and our studio at the Spectrum Marketing Group in Howland Place in New Bedford.
We accommodate our guests’ schedules and record location/resources preference due to Covid’s continuing presence to allow them to remain in the comfort of their homes or because they don’t live in the South Coast of Massachusetts.
The whole concept of The Artists Index and our journey is still in the making and very organic. If you would like to be a guest or, have a suggestion, please let us know!
