Kathy McCurry – Artist of the Month

Kathy McCurry Artist of the month

Heights Arts working artist-member Kathy McCurry knew that she wanted to be an artist at the tender age of 5 years. After exploring metal work, pottery, oil painting and print making in her early years, she went on to study at the Hartford Art School in Connecticut. After a successful career in marketing, Kathy returned to art-making with polymer clay, a versatile medium that allows the artist to develop ideas in many disciplines.

Kathy’s art pieces are mixed-media and use: watercolor, acrylics, various mediums, handmade or rice papers, polymer (liquid and/or solid), resin, mica pigments and powders, alcohol inks, metallic glazes, pastels, and sometimes found objects in shallow 3-dimensional designs, decorative bowls and jewelry. She notes,”It is my goal to create an effect of bold lightness with a feeling of motion.  I strive to create visual balance and harmony without the aid of true symmetry through the careful placement and use of colors, textures and white space.”

Enter our free giveaway for a Kathy’s polymer clay pendant any time you visit the gallery shop in June, no purchase necessary! A winner will be drawn on July 1, 2017.
