The Hand That Feeds, Stone and Plate Lithograph by Kathryn Polk.

Artist Kathryn Polk started drawing before she could even walk, using art to express herself, which wasn’t always easy growing up in the deep south in the 1950s and 1960s, when women were mostly expected to stay home and not pursue careers in things like art.

Fast forward to today, and the Visiting Artist and Scholar Program at Boise State University is hosting Polk this week on campus, talking about her art and working with students to create a lithograph. She joined Idaho Matters to talk more.

My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
