Catherine Freshley | Final Friday at The Workroom

  • The Workroom 150 N. Cleveland Wichita, KS 67214 (map)

Featured Artist: Catherine Freshley

"I often struggle to simply enjoy a sunset or a summer field; instead, I fret about the possibility of forgetting the scene, which compels me to preserve in it something more concrete than my memory. I consider myself a recorder or transcriber, documenting something that Mother Nature has already created. This view diminishes my attachment to my paintings.

I paint acrylic landscapes from places I have been. Recently, most of my paintings are of Oklahoma and Kansas. The natural beauty of our land and the sky moves me. I respond most to scenes that seem unremarkable - open, flat land, tidy crops, back roads and their accompanying road-side weeds, and the expansive skies above it all.

I want my paintings to transport viewers to somewhere that is familiar and comfortable - even ordinary. My paintings capture what a place and a sky feel like, but they are not too specific: I want viewers to layer their own memory and their own meaning onto my paintings."

Join us 6-9pm for art, a glass of wine and live music by Craig Owens and Dale Black.
