Equipped with her BA in Art History from UNC Asheville in Spring 2015, Kate Averett attended UNC Chapel Hill where she graduated with her MA in Art History in 2017. While at UNC, her research utilized a feminist psychoanalytic approach to horror films as a means of understanding contemporary fears surrounding spectatorship, the female body, and maternity. During this time, she was awarded a Teaching Assistantship in addition to her work at Chapel Hill's Tyndall Galleries. Kate has returned to Asheville to serve as Project Coordinator for the Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center's Performance Initiative, a project that furthers UNCA's relationship with the Museum as well as the downtown community through programming, performances, and workshops.
