Catherine Moore’s “Colors” At The Discovery Gallery

Catherine Moore’s exhibit, Colors will be at the Discovery Gallery from, December 4 – January 2, 2008 with an opening reception on Friday, December 5 from 5 – 7 pm. for First Friday’s Ventura Gallery Crawl.
Moore’s paintings are a conduit for communicating with intuition and spirit. When the connection is made, the vision is created. Whether planned or spontaneous, her goal is to dig deep, retrieve the essence and pass along to the viewer.
For instance, some of her paintings she creates environments where the viewer has an opportunity to float through the painting and participate in the interpretation. Others use elements of mythological symbols to tell the story of powerful female archetypes walking in two worlds guided by compassion and wisdom.
Moore’s art is an evolution of her many artistic interests and careers. Her eclectic background includes an AA in computer graphics, certification in digital multimedia, fine arts workshops with Zig Jankowski, Nancy del Pesco, Stephanie Elise and Karen Mc Lean, theater production with the Alacama Theater and others. She owned CP Graphics and worked in video production for Paradise Film and Video. She has taught the art of and created murals in Goleta, Ventura, and Ojai Unified School District. Her paintings have been accepted into juried shows in Santa Barbara, Montecito and Ventura where she received honorable mention as well as two first place awards.
Moore is currently a full-time artist, pursuing her life-long dream of exploring her creative spirit. She presently has a studio at Bell Arts Studios in Ventura, is a member of the Buenaventura Artists Association, & the Artists Union Gallery.
