Kathryn Hanna is a sculptor and socially engaged artist who graduated from the Sculpture and Environmental Art
Programme, Glasgow School of Art, in 2017. Hanna lives in Glasgow and works out of her studio in Blantyre, creating artworks which reflect on antiquity and the sacred, exploring the relevancies of the past within the present. In addition to her studio practice, Hanna is driven to make the arts accessible, and works with communities, schools, councils and arts organisations to deliver creative programmes and to develop public artworks.
Hanna was recently commissioned by the David Elder Edward Trust to create a public artwork, Pathways for South Ayrshire, responding the COVID-19 pandemic. Hanna is currently the Country Parks Artist in Residence for North Lanarkshire Council, and is the Lead Artist for South Lanarkshire’s ‘Remembering Together Covid Memorial Project.’ Hanna’s artwork has been exhibited publicly at Pollok House, Glasgow (2017); The Maclaurin Art Gallery, Ayr (2018 & 2022). Selected group shows include NORTH, Visual Art Scotland, Inverness (2022); It’ll Be Alright, Alchemy Experiment, Glasgow (2023); WEST, Visual Art Scotland, Glasgow (2023).
Kathryn Hanna was part of the 2023 exhibition Life Lines, bringing together artists affected by the long-term impacts of COVID-19, opening up their creative practice on an online platform. See Kathryn’s work as part of Life Lines here.
