Catherine Skowron has been an artist and educator on the lower Cape since 1969. Her interest in and love of the natural landscape is reflected in her art as well as all areas of her life. “Skowron’s oil painting…provides viewers with originally interpreted Cape Cod themes that transcend the genre. Her landscapes reflect the naturalist in her soul—she knows these dunes and paths intimately and revels in bringing people into her own special places.” Provincetown Banner 1/30/2014.
She has studied art in France and Italy and on Cape Cod with Carol Whorf Westcott, Sal DelDeo and Elizabeth Pratt.
Catherine has exhibited in a variety of venues in both open and juried shows, and her works are in private collections throughout the US, Canada and Europe. She is a member of the Truro Group, the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod, Provincetown Art Association and Museum, Oil Painters of America, and American Women Artists where she was selected to participate in AWA’s Spring 2013 on-line juried exhibition. . In 2015 Skowron received an award from the Edward Hopper House Art Center in Nyack, NY for works included in After Hopper events sponsored by Addison Gallery. She is one of the featured artists in Cape Cod Art 2016 magazine. She is one of 4 featured artists in a video produced by Patricia Zur and Provincetown Community TV describing their artist residency in a dune shack of Cape Cod National Seashore. Starting in 2017 the video will be part of the video collection shown to visitors at the CCNS Visitor Centers. She was chosen to create a painting for the 2017 Portuguese Festival in Provincetown; the image will be used to commemorate the 7oth Blessing of the Fleet in a variety of media.
She is represented by Cortile Gallery, Provincetown.
