Artist Catherine Weber will present Into The Woods: The meaning and muse behind the art.
Catherine Weber is a visual artist and poet. She has explored many mediums and produced a great deal of work that include photography, sewn textile art, bees wax, acrylic, printmaking and, perhaps most prominently, wood. While these many mediums might seem disparate, her work does, however, have a very strong thread: her connection with the forest and trees. In this talk, Catherine will share her creative process, and how her body of work has evolved over time and always remains deeply connected to her love of the woods and her exhibition Filling the Gaps, which will be on display at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts from April 20 – May 17th.
Catherine Weber does not have an art degree, at least of the accredited kind. For the last ten years, she has intentionally been putting in her time, learning everything she wants to know about art for her self-titled self-directed, non-accredited, MFA Program. She is a painter, working primarily in encaustic, but also with many other mediums, to celebrate the natural world. She is also a poet. She has exhibited her work throughout New England in juried group and solo exhibitions, including at the Danforth Museum and the Saco Museum. She has received awards for both her paintings and her poetry. She is a member of New England Wax and the International Encaustic Artists. She holds a BA in Communications from Emerson College and an MA in Critical and Creative Thinking from the University of Massachusetts Boston. Her studio is located in Southborough, Massachusetts.

This is a Creative Circles event.
