Katia Setzer

Katia Setzer was born in 1988 in South Orange, New Jersey. She graduated from Colby College (Waterville, Maine) in 2010 with a degree in both art and English. In 2013, she earned her M.F.A. from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) in Philadelphia. She exhibits regularly in both group and solo shows, most recently at the Bridgette Mayer Gallery (Philadelphia), Studio Montclair (Newark, New Jersey), and the Ukrainian Institute of America (New York City). Additionally, she provided the program cover for the Emerson String Quartet’s ongoing concert series at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. Her painting Transfiguration (After Schoenberg’s Transfigured Night) was selected by Sony Classical for the CD cover of the Emerson’s album Journeys (released in May 2013). She currently lives and works in Philadelphia.
