A painter and poet who began to visit 291 around 1910, Katharine N. Rhoades was a contributor to both Camera Work and 291. Her work was shown at 291 in an “Exhibition of Paintings by Marion H. Beckett, of New York, and Paintings by Katharine N. Rhoades, of New York,” held from 27 January to 22 February 1915. In the fall of 1915 Rhoades moved to Washington where she helped the collector Charles Freer establish the Freer Gallery of Art, now part of the Smithsonian Institution.
