Meet Cathy Carey
Our Open Show Juror

Juror's Statement:
“My personal philosophy of color is to express emotional meaning through color. I believe this is the purpose of art, to express the story of being alive at a particular time. Art is the physical manifestation of the emotional and spiritual nature of an artist's response to the world around them, and the world within them.”
