June 4 - August 21, 2022
From Galveston Arts Center:
“Cathie Kayser’s exhibition, Liminal, features new prints that continue the artist’s exploration into printmaking processes, materials, and landscapes, both real and imagined. Kayser’s work often begins with an exploration of various media that evolve into new series of prints. This exhibition includes work inspired by her experiences in the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic in which she found herself isolated from the natural world she regularly takes influence from. Inspired by a New York Times article in July 2020 featuring the front lines of the pandemic, this series includes monotypes made from disposable paper gowns that Kayser reworked through drawing and cutting in order to isolate shapes within the folds. For Kayser, these new works are her attempt to capture the range of emotions and struggles of the past two years.
About the Artists:
Cathie Kayser is a print artist based in Houston, TX. She is the studio manager and printing assistant to master printer Patrick Masterson at Burning Bones Press, where she has taught printmaking workshops and works in a variety of techniques, including plate lithography, woodcuts, intaglio, screenprints, and monotypes. Her work is in private and public collections, including the Houston Airport System. Kayser’s work has been featured in local and international group exhibitions, as well as solo exhibitions at Bosque Gallery/Lonestar College and Nicole Longnecker Gallery. In 2009, Kayser and four other artists founded PrintHouston, a celebration of original prints, the artists who create them, and the people who collect them. In 2010 they organized the inaugural biennial along with Rockin’ Roll Prints, a steamroller printmaking event attended by hundreds of artists from across Texas.
