In her current exhibition at Addington Gallery, Cat L Crotchett really throws down her gauntlet as a painter to be reckoned with! Each painting alone is a technical tour de force, but taken together, this show is a huge statement about both herself and our shared time. Not only is Cat pushing the envelope of a specific encaustic technique she pretty much invented anyway, but she is pouring meaning and emotion into these layered panels until they nearly start to vibrate and sing on their own. Art talk hyperbole? You won't think so when you come and see the show in person. :-) It's up for nearly 2 months... that's plenty of time to figure out your travel plans.
