Dartmouth, MA/Maynard, MA—Catherine Carter and Cheryl Clinton, two University of Massachusetts Dartmouth alumna, are featured in the “Natural Forces: Three Artists Experience the Landscape” exhibit, October 22-November 21, 2003 at the Art Space-Maynard Gallery (Maynard, MA). Each of the artists draws on natural forces for the imagery in her work. 

Catherine Carter's paintings explore the shapes of the handwritten word and how they interact with each other, interlocking and implying motion. She creates the works by painting over loop-shaped stencils onto stretched canvas. 

Carter studied with Professor Willoughby Elliott at UMass Dartmouth, graduating from the University in 1997 with a master of fine arts degree. She has exhibited her paintings at the New Bedford Art Museum, the Attleboro Center Museum for the Arts, the Fuller Museum of Art in Brockton, and the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk, VA.

Cheryl Clinton captures the mood and spirit of water, from the gentle pull of a breeze across the surface of a pond to the surge of crashing ocean waves. A visit to Venice as a student awakened Clinton’s fascination with the visual possibilities of the patterns of water, as well as its emotional implications. “The conditions in the landscape that inspire me are ‘works in progress,’” said Clinton. “From day to day, even moment-to-moment, the appearance of the sky and the ocean is shifting and changing.” 

Having worked with Professor Laurie Kaplowitz at UMass Dartmouth, Clinton earned a master of fine arts degree in 1998. She has presented a solo show at the Danforth Museum in Framingham and has participated in group exhibitions throughout New England. Her work can be seen online at http://www.cclinton.com/. 

Hilary Hutchinson is the third artist whose work is included in the exhibit.
