‘Endangered’ exhibition shows imperiled Earth through artist’s eyes

JAN. 17, 2020

In a series of vivid expressionist landscapes, painter Cathy Carey portrays rolling hills and blooming agave under azure skies. And Julian-based painter Joe Garcia captured a bobcat brazenly staring down the viewer, along with a roadrunner at rest. 
“The art in “Finding Heaven in Hellhole Canyon” encourages introspection, revealing the complex and symbiotic relationship between humans and land,” the exhibition description stated.

Meet Cathy Carey of Cathy Carey Art Studios

JUNE 14, 2018

An interesting question I am often asked is, “where do your ideas come from?” To that, I respond to everything around me and the world I live in. I paint the things I see and feel everyday – even when it looks made up, it is based in reality. I try to find a story within a scene that is engaging. I look for wonderful possibilities of color and for ways to use exciting shapes and textures.
My special talent is that I am a problem solver, and I sure know how to create a lot of problems artistically! My creativity is sparked when I am uncomfortable with something and have to figure out how to fix it so that everything will be OK again. Consequently, I am very adventurous with color and composition, knowing that each new obstacle in front of me will have an amazing solution if I can only figure it out. My father was an electrical engineer, who worked for NASA, sending the first men into space and to the moon using a slide-rule. I must have gotten this creative problem solving an aspect of my nature from him!
