Cathy Schoenberg – Floral Oil paintings

Jo Moniz - Geometric encaustic paintings

These artists share a richly hued color palette: Cathy in oil painting and Jo in encaustic painting.

Cathy’s journey to her present floral based work is a very circuitous route, filled with lots of patterning, female figures, dancing figures and cats.  Her brilliantly colored paintings are scaled with larger floral shapes belonging to many seemingly familiar flowers.

Jo’s architecturally-oriented encaustic paintings are meditations in quiet.  Seemingly simplified landscapes of doorways, archways and buildings, her paintings are geometric in nature without feeling cold and formulaic.   

Reception for the artists: Friday September 7th  4-7pm.

Please join us on Saturday, ​September  8th 11-1pm for an informal artist talk and show walk-through.
