Who is Katharine T. Carter?

One could aptly describe Katharine T. Carter as a “disarming dichotomy of Southern gentility and New York brass.”  This duality, and an insistence on purposeful hard work and no-nonsense practicum has served her well in all her endeavors, past and present - professional photographer, successful New York City painter, small business owner, arts lecturer and artist advisor.  Her knowledge of the art world spans decades, and her experience and expertise come from hands-on implementation of her principles.

Carter spent ten years on the road, traveling coast to coast, spending as much as 250 days per year lecturing on current trends in contemporary art and speaking to all levels of professional career development.  While Katharine has lectured to thousands of artists, she has also personally met and counseled hundreds of artists with the intent of guiding them along their unique paths to artistic success.

Katharine recognized a common thread in each one––the need for more specific practical information on effective marketing strategies tailored to individual desire, level of accomplishment and lifestyle. Drawing on her wide range of knowledge of the New York arena, the breadth and scope of her professional experience, and her personal “trial and error” experiences as a practicing artist, Carter successfully developed comprehensive seminars and field trips designed to de-mystify the process of career development.  Her practical approach, as well as a realistic understanding of how each artist fits into the current art marketplace, make her seminars and consultations invaluable to artists at all levels.

As a practicing artist, Carter has exhibited her work in New York at The New Museum, the Institute of Contemporary Art at P.S. 1, and the Hal Bromm Gallery.  She has had over 20 one-woman exhibitions in museums and leading college and university art galleries throughout the country. Her paintings have received attention from critics of national and international prominence such as: Donald Kuspit, William Zimmer, Robert Mahoney, Peter Frank and Vivian Raynor.  She received five reviews in The New York Times alone, one with noted critic John Russell. Her teaching credits include: Drew University, Rutgers University, University of the South, the State University of New York and other colleges in New Jersey.

In 2010, Katharine T. Carter in collaboration with her Associates and Running Hare Press published a large format reference book titled Accelerating on the Curves: The Artist’s Roadmap to Success. The book was reviewed in the February, 2011 issue of Art in America, and reviewed in publications including Sculpture Magazine, Resolve 40, FAME NY, Chicago Art and numerous other outlets. Upcoming reviews include ARTnews, dArt International, Artist Magazine, American Craft and Ceramic Review. In 2016, the Revised and Expanded Edition of Accelerating was released and is available at www.runningharepress.com and Amazon.

Carter now devotes her time fully to furthering the careers of artists across the country, and working with institutions, galleries, and critics to create synergistic and interdependent solutions for success in today’s contemporary art world. She has booked over 1,000 one-person exhibitions for her clients at museums, art centers and better college and university galleries.
