Cathy Carey Painting Accepted into in the 2022 Artist Biennial at the Oceanside Museum of Art

OMA is thrilled to present their fifth biennial, continuing the tradition of elevating the voice of Southern California artists and celebrating the best work from OMA’s Artist Alliance. This exhibition represents only a small cross-section of our remarkable artist members. The competition was fierce—ultimately only 61 artworks were selected from nearly 900 entries by juror Alessandra Moctezuma, Professor of Art and Gallery Director at San Diego Mesa College.

Cathy Carey's painting, “At the Heart of Life’s Journey” a 40” x 30” oil on linen, was painted in 2021during the Covid pandemic. She has this to say about it: "During the time I was working on this painting, my Mom who was 98 went into hospice and passed away. I traveled back to Virginia several times to see her in those last months. She had lived a long and beautiful life and I tried to capture in this painting the idea of life as a place you journey through. The clouds are the passage of time. The depth of the canyon and distance of the mountains represent the many places you will go, challenges you will have and things you will experience. The horses represent the emotion of life and partnership, connection and love. It’s those connections that are the heart of life’s journey, the fellow travelers you meet along the way."
