A fine artist from the North Bay, Kate Logue uses drawing and printmaking to illustrate her unique perspective as an insider in California’s marijuana industry. Her work explores themes of gender roles, identity, object appropriation, anxiety, home and industry. Gender roles within the marijuana industry mirror those of early American farm families, where the men do the cultivating, and distribution and the women are generally in charge of harvest and processing. The drawings and prints are a sincere reflection of the entrepreneurship and courage of the individuals building this industry. Now, with the shifting political and social tides occurring in America surrounding recreational and medical cannabis use, her work also functions to visually capture this historic moment in time. Ms. Logue received her B.F.A. in printmaking from Sonoma State University and her M.F.A. in printmaking from Rhode Island School of Design. She has exhibited her work throughout California, New York and Rhode Island.
