At the Grange Insurance Audubon Center
A Solo Exhibition featuring 28 Archival prints and 1 extraordinary Bird Screen by innovative and multidisciplinary artist Catherine Eaton Skinner
We live in a world where it is difficult to feel a part of the whole, as we continue finding ways to connect to each other and place. Skinner’s work gives expression to her journeys through many cultures and the five elements, the balance being imperative to our survival.
Skinner’s creative sensibilities stem from growing up in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. She completed a Bachelor of Arts and Science from Stanford University, painting instruction from Bay Area Figurative painters Nathan Oliveira and Frank Lobdell. Twenty years in biological illustration began Skinner’s professional career. Dividing her time between studios in Seattle and Santa Fe, she works as an innovative artist with multidisciplinary methods: encaustic, oil painting, photography, glass, printmaking, sculpture.

Robie Benve is a mixed media artist creating paintings that express her love for Nature and its preservation.
Benve's landscapes represent beautiful places and untouched environments. Beautiful and lush landscapes are a precious and rare encounter. Benve paints with vivid and uplifting colors, using a mix of paper, paint, inks, and other media as needed. A strong source of light is used in Benve's scenes, as light is a font of life and hope. Robie starts her work from a very abstract base and works intuitively to transform it into a more depictive scene. Click HERE for more information.
Visit Robie in studio on Thursdays and Fridays, 10a-1p. Join her for tips on painting, possible workshops and participate in her community "turtle" art project (coming soon).
