Katherine Venturelli, a Northern California artist, creates limited edition artist books and intaglio and monotype prints. Her artwork depends upon the power of symbolic imagery.

Palace of the Legion of Honor; Museum of Fine Arts, Santa Fe, N.M; Roswell Fine Art Museum, N.M.; Las Vegas Art Museum; Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento, CA; Getty Museum Research Institute,L.A.; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Minn.;.and the Special Collections of U.S.C., U.C.S.D., Mills College, and Univ. of Washington.
