acts of paint­ing and draw­ing are insep­a­ra­ble for Cather­ine Young Bates. The ma­te­ri­als may change from can­vas to pa­per, colours rang­ing from black and white to multi-coloured, but the act of draw­ing is al­ways vis­i­ble.

she draws di­rectly on the sur­face, other times onto a can­vas which has had paint al­ready ap­plied to it. She works in this way be­cause paint­ing and draw­ing are phys­i­cally very im­por­tant to her, what­ever the sub­ject might be. These ac­tions heighten her aware­ness and con­trol of her body, which she sees as an in­stru­ment of ex­pres­sion and per­cep­tion. This is why view­ers of­ten com­ment on the energy shown in her works.

artist finds in­spi­ra­tion around her: “I paint land­scapes be­cause I see them around me, be­cause the land sup­ports us and feeds us. I make still life paint­ings be­cause I love the shapes of hand-made con­tain­ers and the sim­plic­ity of grouped fruit, vases, and flow­ers. I sense the energy of the land­scape and still life group­ings and work to keep that energy vis­i­ble in my paint­ings and draw­ings.” Hours

is open Tues­day to Sun­day from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Ad­mis­sion is free. more in­for­ma­tion call 819 564-0409.
