“Stone Portraits” by Catherine Martha Holmes

Campbell River Art Gallery, Satellite Gallery, March 31st – May 17th, 2017

Campbell River, BC

Curated by Julia Prudhomme

“These daily stone portrait paintings of 2017 are an extension of my series ‘I Navigate by You,’ of 239 paintings completed after the death of my father, a Master Mariner, in 2015. Where that work honoured people connected to my life, their names hidden beneath the paint, these new paintings are often influenced by current events worldwide.” This work can be viewed on Instagram @catherinemarthaholmes

The Stone Portraits of 2017 added an additional 157 paintings to the series.
