Sketching in January 2018

Come join us for sketching! We're an informal group who meet Friday mornings from 9:00-11:00 and sketch on location.

Bring your own materials (sketchbook, paper, pencil, pen, watercolor kit). We usually begin with a few quick sketches as a group to get warmed up, then work independently on views that interest us.

There’s no fee and minimal instruction. Beginners and experienced sketchers are welcome.

Catherine loves to create wearable art that brings people joy. Her original silver jewelry designs explore playful line work and/or unique surface texture and are often accented with enamel, gold, stones, or pearls.

This same evening is the Annual “In the Pink” art show to benefit The Gathering Place in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. Hudson Fine Art and The Red Twig will be raffling off small paintings to benefit The Gathering Place. Uncommon art will also have an interactive project honoring cancer patients and survivors.

Delivering Stories, July 14-August 19, at the BOX Gallery

“Delivering Stories” is a two-person exhibit of artwork by me and Amber McElreath.

The show runs July 14 – August 19 at the BOX Gallery in Akron.

Come join us for the opening reception on Friday, July 14, 5-8pm.

For this exhibit, I have made lots of new artwork that is more textured and dimensional than I've done in the past. The pieces have been exciting and challenging to make..

The piece pictured here is one of the new ones, titled “From a Fond Heart Faithful and True”.

Amber makes assemblages from found objects. She and I have different styles, but they play off each other very well. This show should be really interesting.

The BOX Gallery is open Friday and Saturdays from noon-5pm. It is also open till 9 during the Akron Artwalk on August 5th.
