Meet the Artist at MERA April 2nd:
Catherine Orfald – Celebrate the Beauty of the Natural World
For the entire month of April, the beauty of the natural world will be on display through the work of celebrated local artist Catherine Orfald. You are invited to join us at the MERA Schoolhouse for the show’s opening event on Sunday April 2nd.
Catherine is an artist, eLearning designer and developer, and avid nature lover inspired by what she sees around her: people, animals, landscapes, life, and death. She is a member of the Perth Autumn Studio Tour, and her work is displayed at the Riverguild cooperative in Perth.
“In painting, I try to convey the essence of what I see, influenced by my feelings. While painting, I seek a sense of unity with the subject… those moments when we’re drawn together, inter-connected. My usual medium is oil paint and I’ve been working in encaustic for the past few years as well.”
You are invited to join Catherine at the MERA Schoolhouse in McDonald’s Corners (974 Dalhousie Concession 9A) on Sunday April 2nd from 2:00 to 4:00 pm to meet the artist, view their works and purchase that “must have” piece. To arrange to see the exhibition at times other than the Meet the Artist event, please contact Wayne Stryde firstname.lastname@example.org.
