Cathy Carey strives to capture a joyful sense of reality in her paintings by representing the drama of a place through gesture and brushstroke, color and composition. “I paint landscapes because I love the feeling I get when I’m surrounded by nature and because I am fascinated by organic shapes,” she explains. “I am driven to enhance the color of the scene in order to express my emotional memories of the moment.” Carey’s work is showcased in “Summer Fun,” July 6-29, at Wilde Meyer Annex in Scottsdale. The exhibit opens with a reception from 7 to 9 p.m. July 6. Pictured is “Night Music,” oil on canvas, 24"H x 30"W. For more information, visit, or call (480) 947-1489.
