Cathy Schoenberg: “Transition”
Cathy Schoenberg, a painter of some 35 years, lives in the Skagit Valley, 60 miles north of Seattle, on Guemes Island, a short ferry ride from Anacortes, where her studio is located.
The work in this exhibition indicates transition: from the figurative to the almost abstraction of flowers, both following a path of complex, vibrant color, patterns, rhythm and vibration.
“I started sketching with fervor 4 or 5 years ago, not as a precursor to painting, just for my own enrichment , like a daily practice, as in yoga! But Alas! That is exactly where it led me,
To a new frontier: deep onto the texture, shapes, and lush wildness of flowers.”
Schoenberg was born in Spokane, WA and obtained a BFA in fine art from Fort Wright College in 1975. Schoenberg’s work has been shown in Skagit Valley area, Seattle, Bellingham, San Juan Island, in various Galleries and venues since 1980.
