PRLog (Press Release) - Jan. 20, 2014 - PORTLAND, Maine -- (Peaks Island, ME) Richard Boyd Art Gallery announces the opening of "Intersections" on March 7th at 10:00 am. The exhibit features a selection of contemporary paintings in watercolor by award winning artist Katharine Cartwright, NWS. The exhibition is on view free to the public from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm on Friday March 7, and from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm every Sunday, Friday and Saturday through March 31, 2014. Additional hours are by appointment or chance. There is no reception for this exhibit.

Nationally recognized artist and art instructor Katharine Cartwright's works are at the intersection of the visual arts and the natural sciences. As a young child, her mother encouraged her to experiment with color theory and design. Both parents provided her with a formal education in the fine arts. Cartwright's father, an electronic and radio engineer sparked her interest in science and the natural realm at an early age. This early influence and education strengthened her intuition-based analytical thinking skills and set her on a dual discipline course for the rest of her life. Her present body of work, The Laws of Nature, melds these two disciplines.

In the fine arts, Cartwright received formal academic training from Kutztown University, The College of Charleston, and The Maryland Institute College of Art. This training enabled her to master drawing and techniques in oil painting. A few decades later, she gained interest in watercolor painting and attened workshops by Janet Fish, Christopher Schink, and Susan Webb Tregay. By the age of forty, Katharine's interest in the natural physical world inspired her to return to college where she was awarded a B.A., magna cum laude, in Geology from the College of Charleston followed by a M.S. with honors in Earth Sciences at Skidmore College and acted as department chair before retiring in 2008. Presently, Cartwright works from her studio in Spruce Head, Maine.
