Kate Fleming

Kate Fleming is an oil painter, a printmaker, and a documentarian of the human-built landscape who captures specific intersections of time and place, recreating the experience of that moment.

Kate Fleming is a painter and printmaker based in her hometown of Arlington, Virginia. Between 2019 and 2021 Fleming traveled to and documented all 50 states alongside her partner, photographer Tom Woodruff. The small, plein-air oil paintings she created on the road capture the human-built American landscape: gas stations, parking lots, strip malls, and big box stores. This series of paintings won Kate third prize at the 2023 Bethesda Painting Awards. Kate has completed residencies at Capitol Hill Arts Workshop in Washington, DC (2018); Virginia Center for the Creative Arts in Amherst, VA (2017); and Penland School of Crafts in Penland, NC (2018). Kate’s work was included in the exhibition Inside Out, Upside Down (2020) at The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C. She has been featured in The Washington Post, East City Art, Washington City Paper, and WJLA-ABC7.
