“An active viewership community is key in creating a successful artistic practice.”-   K. Creutzburg

Paths is a collection based on an artist’s journey. Her materials and ideas are collected remnants found along different paths. Some of these paths are taken alone, while others are shared. As we move forward, trails both tangible and invisible are left behind. The East River, becomes a metaphor for process, meandering in one direction and then another. 

  Creutzburg, during her daily jogging reverie, imagines a grand urban design. She accumulates natural and discarded objects along her journeys to later assemble into sculptures that portray the essence of how human imagination shapes the natural world. Her watercolors are often a literal roadmap along this path. The watercolors illustrate the journey whereas the sculptures embody the outcome of the voyage.  

Kathy has been an active artist in New York City since 1988 working primarily with sculpture and gardens throughout the Lower East Side. In the early 1990’s she was deeply involved with GreenThumb NYC gardening and helped found Artistas de Loisada. In the past she has worked with several children’s arts programs, such as, Studio in a School, the School Construction Authority's Sites for Schools Program, CityArts, Henry Street Settlement's Summer Youth Employment Program,  Stanley Isaacs Neighborhood Center, "Place" (NYS), and Brooklyn Friends Summer Arts Program.  She currently works as an artist in residence for New York City public schools throughout the five boroughs, collaborating with and facilitating youth art projects. She is  involved with Hurricane Sandy Relief, working in both Red Hook and Coney Island, with children who were directly affected by flooding during the storm, making artwork which addresses the issue of re-building the city for the future.
