The Society of Women Artists (SWA)
Our 2019 Annual Exhibition is back at London’s Mall Galleries this September. It previews from 4pm on 24th September 2019 and runs until 1pm on Sunday 29th September 2019.
On this last day I will be demonstrating some of my watercolour gravity painting techniques. The fantastic range of art is otherwise open 10am to 5pm daily.
As a Member of the Society, I regularly exhibit at the exhibition and have two portraits and two landscapes hanging in this year’s show.
Please email me if you would like to attend the 2019 preview.
Art Trail News:
I will be exhibiting during the Combe Down Art Trail in Bath next year: September 12-13 2020 at The Museum of Bath Stone.
I regularly show in the Wylye Valley Art Trail (on the Wiltshire/Dorset border) and the Widcombe Art Trail in Bath. Both of these trails occur in alternate years and are planned for Spring/summer 2021.
Solo Exhibition news:
My own Solo Exhibition runs biennially alternate Octobers at 44AD Artspace in the centre of Bath. The last was 11-14 October 2018 and the next is planned for October 2020.
2018 Press release:
atmospherics – luminous new works by Catherine Beale ASWA:
Award-winning Bath-based painter Catherine Beale’s solo exhibition bursts with colour and luminosity. It is a celebration of the power of modern paints and a year of dramatic weather over our City – from towering shadows of thunder storms to the long, hot summer and holiday jets tracking vapour trails across clear skies.
Also featuring are her latest portraits fresh from the Society of Women Artists exhibition at London’s Mall Galleries where she is an Associate member. Catherine is grateful to kind clients who have loaned back a few of her commissioned portraits of loved ones just for the show.
Catherine says “ I really want to convey the excitement of “fast and loose” watercolours. New paints are like ink in their intensity and can be applied onto all sorts of surfaces. By dropping running paints into water, I mingle then together naturally, with surprising results. I now use intense paints from the US which contain minerals such as Hematite and Amethyst. They channel like rivers across the surface.”
