Katie Craig makes a bold statement at the Red Bull House of Art

If you've driven on Grand Boulevard close to Woodward, you've probably seen her artwork but you might not know her name. Now Katie Craig, the artist of several murals around the city, also has work inside the Red Bull House of Art. The bright colors of her art literally transcend the frames, spilling onto the wall and even the floor in the basement of the re-purposed former brewery.

"This past summer I was at Library Street Collective, talking with Matt [Eaton] about how to transform my mural art and put it in a gallery," Craig recalled. Eaton is part-owner of Library Street Collective and also the one who single-handedly selects the artists for each round without need for a meddling committee.

Craig is one of six artists in Round 7. Other artists include Zak Meers and Paula Zammit. Previous rounds of the House had eight artists. The change was made to allow "more space" for the current artists to exhibit and also to allow studio space for previous artists "to come back" to work on whatever projects they want, Eaton explained. A few 'alumni' have already taken advantage of the opportunity.

The gallery will have gallery hours on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., according to the gallery's website.
