Galveston ArtWalk opening this Sat., April 20, 6-9 p.m.
In "Winged Beauties," three artists soar to creative heights
Karasu I by Catherine Eaton Skinner
At the peak of Galveston's spring migratory bird season, we're thrilled to present "Winged Beauties," featuring amazing images of birds and other winged creatures in a variety of mediums by three recognized midcareer artists.
We hope you won't miss the opportunity to see these beautiful artworks at our ArtWalk opening on Saturday, or while the exhibition is up through May 25. After that, these artworks will fly away, just like Galveston's migratory birds.
Charlie Jean Sartwelle
Oyster Catcher by Charlie Jean Sartwelle
A longtime Houston artist, Charlie founded Mother Dog Studios in Houston's Warehouse District in 1984 with her husband, John Runnels. Birds are a favorite theme for Charlie, who often builds her intricate mixed media artworks using recycled materials that already have a history and richness of soul. Charlies uses media as diverse as gold leaf, glitter and dried flowers to create collages that celebrate the beauty and diversity of birds.
Catherine Eaton Skinner
Cold Feet by Catherine Eaton Skinner
Working from her studios in the Pacific Northwest and Santa Fe, Catherine creates mixed-media paintings that explore the figure, both human and animal, and especially avian. The figure is an important element of Catherine's work and acts as a source of inspiration and exploration of identity, spirit and the paradoxes of human existence. Her work has been shown internationally and is included in numerous public and private collections.
Hawk Moth at Motherdog by Louise Schlachter
A resident artist of Mother Dog Studios, Louise has always been curious about the little things, including hidden and discarded objects. So when a storm blew a flurry of moths blew into her life one day, it's no surprise that these mythical creatures became the subject matter for her new body of work, created as one-of-a-kind photographic images on metal. Louise also presents the original iridescent inks on clayboard that inspired the works on metal.
