The Art Spirit Gallery will be opening a show featuring Sandpoint artist Catherine Earle. The show will run through the month of June and features 30 new paintings.
Earle's work looks at subjects from nature, but her use of the medium and combinations of natural and jewel tones offers an ethereal tone to the work as well. The Art Spirit Gallery describes her work as being "a snapshot in motion".
The artist presently resides in Sandpoint, but Earle began her formal education at Ecole Des Beaux Arts in France. She moved to the United States in 1997, where she continued her education focusing on watercolors before moving on to encaustic techniques. The influence of these mediums is easily seen in her paintings.
The show opens with an Opening Reception and ArtWalk on Friday, June 7th from 5-8pm. Earle will also give an informal painting demonstration in the gallery on Saturday, June 8th, from 1-4pm. The show will be at the gallery from June 7th through July 6th.
