Katherine Taylor, a native of Biloxi and current resident of Atlanta, held her first solo exhibition to rave reviews at Marcia Wood Gallery in 2002. The upcoming exhibition, entitled "Document", presents a compelling image of a powerful American icon, a car, in the wake of disaster; an intriguing and timely addition to Taylor's ongoing exploration of the subjective and tenuous experience of humanity.
