The Gotthelf Art Gallery is pleased to present…

Contemplation
Artist: Cathy Breslaw

September 11–November 26, 2014

Cathy Breslaw’s solo exhibition, Contemplation, encompasses a varied range of work while inviting viewers to thoughtfully observe, react and reflect upon it. The installation piece that has been created specifically for the exhibition is “The Call: 100 Sounds” and is based on the Shofar, the ancient instrument created from a ram’s horn that Jews have used for many purposes throughout the centuries.

Many of the works draw inspiration from mixed-media abstract drawings; ideas stemming from the artist’s imagination about nature, space and time. Contemplation, sharing forms of painting, sculpture and installation, leads the viewer to take an intimate look at seemingly ordinary materials that, because of their artistic transformation, transcend their original function.
