About the Artists:
"Barbara has spent the better part of her life in apparel design, for Carter's when that company was in Needham, and as a freelance designer after Carter's left the area. In more recent years, Barbara and her business partner designed home furnishings textile prints. After retirement last year, she began focusing on watercolor painting for creative expression. Barbara lives in Dedham with her handler, Fenway the Dachshund. "
“This collection of Catherine Perrone’s paintings evoke a sense of expectation and wonder at the world around us. She wants you to sense the calm of a snowy winter morning, experience the tense stillness of a massive buck surprised in the forest, and stand in awe of the forces of wind and austere conditions which shaped the gnarled old canyon tree.The artist employs rich colors and sinewy lines to capture the delicate petals of spring flowers. She wants your mind to wander into the scene of sailboats waiting patiently for their captain to glide through summer days. Her work is influenced by Andrew Wyeth’s emotional narrative, the serenity of Emil Carlson’s paintings and especially by the master of watercolor, John Singer Sargent.
Catherine earned her MBA and worked in Information Technology as a project manager for the DuPont company and Accenture. She has studied painting independently and at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. She is currently a member of the Dedham Art Association and the Needham Art Association. She lives in Westwood, Massachusetts.”
