Painters Catalina Smith and Pegi Smith and Photographers Joeseph Linaschke and Dan Elster
Catalina Smith is a local artist who’s medium is a mixture of oil and acrylic paints. She paints surrealist, fantastical images that leave your mind wondering if it has truly seen everything that the painting has to offer. Complex and detailed, her paintings are inspired by threading layers of vivid color and memories through allusion. Her only desire is that viewers of her art would experience a “technicolor jolt, transporting them to a land of relentless vibrancy, even if just for a moment.”
We have a fanatstic collection of paintings by Pegi Smith. For this collection she has stuck to her roots with the medium of acrylic on canvas but she is always looking for new ways to reuse old artworks and often will paint over existing paintings to fullfill her inspiration. Her art is full of movement and light, reflecting bright colors the hopeful exuberance of Spring. Her paintings are often ribboned with metallic gold and silver which adds a surreal illusion of depth and movement. Her intense use of color brings a brilliant vibrancy to the natural world.
