Francis Parker Middle-Upper School
Cathy Breslaw is a contemporary visual artist from Southern California. This particular type of show has never before been seen in the school’s gallery, as parts of the installation are site specific or created especially for the space. Breslaw was inspired by the gallery’s high open ceilings, abundant natural light, and the possibilities created by the expansive wall spaces. On display until May 5.
Breslaw’s artwork combines painting, drawing, mixed media, and sculpture. She is influenced by nature, space, light, and the ephemeral nature of time. Much of Breslaw’s work involves the transcendence of functional, ordinary materials such has industrial mesh, plastic, and plaster.
Cathy Breslaw has been featured in over 27 solo exhibitions and 50 group exhibitions across the United States. Some of the local venues she has shown in include The Oceanside Museum of Art, The Bakersfield Museum of Art, The San Jose Textile Museum, The San Diego International Airport, and Gallery 825 in Los Angeles.
