Tate Klacsmann remains steadfast in the belief that the traditional arts are not really dead. He makes mixed media collages that uphold his faith in beauty and precision over efficiency.
He completed a certificate in Green Printmaking at Zea Mays Printmaking, an MFA at Johnson State College, Masters of Art History at the University of Glasgow and Christie’s Education, and a BA at Yale University.
He received the 2014 Medal of Honor in Mixed Media and Walinska Memorial Award from the National Association of Women Artists, and was a semi-finalist in the 2016 Outwin. His work is included in the flat files and archives of Zea Mays Printmaking. He has been awarded residencies at Vermont Studio Center, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts, and the Women’s Studio Workshop.
