CATHERINE MARTIN
If you were to name one acrylic painter that exemplifies the best of what expressionistic realism should be...Cathy Martin would be on the top of that list. She uses the medium to create dramatic expressionism with vivid color and bold brushstrokes often pushing realism into abstract. Her paintings are spontaneous and flooded with brightcolors. She is an honest painter who sees the world in her own way but has been greatly influenced by Vincent Van Gogh, the Fauves and Alfred Chadborne. Cathy continues to study with contemporary impressionistic masters throughout the US.. In the past few years Cathy has studied with some of the top painters in the USA, including; Charles Sovek, John Poon, Rick McCure, Sally Strand, Peggi Kroll Roberts, Stephen Early and others.

DIANA COIDAN, PSA


Signature Member, Pastel Society of America.
Diana has been a professional full time artist for the past seventeen years, and has been a multi-media painter for most of her life. But after being introduced to pastels ten years ago, she fell in love with this medium and feels this is the most expressive to work in. Diana has an unconscious attraction to blue which is evident in her strikingly realistic pastels capturing the spectacular skyscapes and nautical scenes which she is noted for. She spends a lot of time on the coast and has has traveled extensively in France providing her with opportunities to photograph many cloud formations and ports along the way for her subject matter. Diana has won many awards since 2004, at least eight 1st and 2nd Place awards combined in juried exhibits regional to national. She recently won the Strathmore Award in the 2013 NC Statewide pastel Exhibit at the Hickory Museum of Art. One of her beautiful cow paintings won the NC State Fair Commissioner’s Choice Award in 2012.
She teaches pastel workshops throughout the Triangle.

Cecilia Guitarte
Take a Seat
40 x 30 oil on canvas - wrapped edges
$ 1775

CECILIA GUITARTE
Oil paintings by Cecilia Guitarte have a clean graphic style with a keen eye for lighting nuances and a focus on everyday subjects elevated to high art. From sliced fruit and vegetables to mist-shrouded trees, serene skies and whimsical still lifes, Cecilia’s distinct detailed imagery stands apart “My paintings are based on photos taken around my home and on my travels. I see lines and shapes, darks and lights and try to accent what has caught my attention. I have a very logical mind, so I like to simplify the objects and the colors that I use; I liked clean lines and a smooth surface” It's no wonder Cecilia gets juried into numerous prestigious shows, including the Raleigh Fine Arts show judged by NC Museum Director Larry Wheeler and the N.E.W Show juried exhibit at VAE. She won 1st place in the 2012 Small Treasures exhibit at the Cary Gallery and in 2011 won Honorable Mentions in the Fine Arts League of Cary annual exhibit and the NC State Fair Juried Exhibit. She is in numerous private and corporate art collections both local and in her home country, Argentina.

Heavily influenced by the talent surrounding her, DiGiulio now has no choice but to work in a mixed media fashion. “It seems I learn something new about a different medium weekly and I just have to try it! I dare myself to use every technique I can think of from transfers, to watercolor to basic drawing, and printmaking to encaustics, to painting and stitching in creating my acrylic collages. The choices are endless. Now my challenge is to put it all together with my collection of photos and make it work. I read a ton of books and pull from childhood experiences and memories to embellish my work.”
