Join us next Thursday at Magenta Gallery for the reception of new member Cathy Taylor, featuring her work of alcohol ink.

Originally developed for the craft industry for use with a felt stamp, alcohol ink has become the newest fine art medium to hit the art community. Wildly colorful, vibrant, and versatile, alcohol ink can be used on a wide variety of surfaces.

Cathy is an award-winning mixed-media artist and popular workshop instructor who has taught since 1995. Her water-media artwork is a celebration of patterns, textures, and color found in the environment. Cathy is known for her ability to interpret a subject in a variety of styles. From her colorful, detailed alphabetical designs, including the work Florida Shell-A-Bet, to her whimsical collages and multidimensional abstracts, Cathy’s work is represented in museums, nature centers, and private collections throughout the US and abroad.

Some of Cathy’s work is licensed for use on clothing, textiles, and gift items. Her work was represented by a licensing agent in New York City, who secured rights for a fine art print of a collage to be distributed nationwide.

Past workshop venues have included BIG Arts in Sanibel, Florida, Traverse City Art Center in Michigan, the JC Campbell Folk School in North Carolina, and Cheap Joe’s Art Stuff, also in North Carolina.

Cathy’s collages were juried into the National Collage Society’s annual exhibitions in 2005, 2007, 2011, 2012, and 2013.

Her articles, “Anthologies,” “The Nature of Art,” “Rethink Alcohol Ink,” and “Creative Spirits” were featured in the Cloth, Paper, Scissors art magazine.

Her work was juried into the International Society of Experimental Artists annual shows in 2008, 2011, 2012, and 2013.

Cathy is a featured artist on artacademylive.com and has created two DVD’s, Watercolor Collage and Mixed Media Collage. She is the author of the bestselling book Pigments of Your Imagination: Creating with Alcohol Inks.

Cathy is a signature member and award winner of both the International Society of Experimental Artists and the National Collage Society.
