The artist has been exhibiting since 1978, and in 2005 Katherine was accorded a solo exhibit of her pastels at The Butler Institute of American Art. Her work has been featured in The Pastel Journal and in The Artist’s Magazine (Jan./Feb. 2008 and June 2008). Hurley also enjoys teaching, and giving workshops to young art students.
Medium: Pastel, oil
Style: Representational. According to art critic Daniel Brown, "Hurley’s work is the search for essences, not likenesses…and symbolically represents nature/ life, growth and beauty. The synchronicity of styles – between her own art and that of the American Luminists and the Song painters of the Northern and Southern dynasties- brings her to the forefront, in my opinion, of America’s contemporary landscape artists."
