Barnes' first exhibition was at the elementary school at the age of seven years. She was given a large space to display her artwork in the hallway showcase. At the recommendation of teachers, Kathryn was sent to art school by her parents, and studied at the art school of the South Bend Art Center. "I received excellent instruction, and was advanced to adult classes at the age of 12, when I began oil painting, learning the techniques of the old masters." Barnes states. Paintings of the young artist were exhibited at this time in the South Bend Art Center gallery with later exhibitions there also. Barnes also studied art in high school and in college. Living in art colonies, she painted and learned from other living artists, exhibiting in art fairs since 1971, beginning with the first art fair in Crested Butte, Colorado. Presently, Barnes exhibits through the art guild and local galleries.
