Kathy Vargas is among the best fine art photographers in the country, combining in her images darkroom techniques with the application of colors by hand as only a painter would. Born in San Antonio, Texas, Vargas had a retrospective of her work in 2001 at the McNay Museum in that city. She has had many one-person exhibitions in the U.S., Mexico, and Europe; she has also been the focus of various scholarly publications. Her lyrical photographs have been acquired by many museums, such as the National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Institute; Mexican Museum, San Francisco, California; the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.; and the Museum of Fine Art, Huston, Texas. Vargas obtained an M.FA from the University of Texas at San Antonio, where she resides.
