2024 Soiree Artist: Catalina Garreton

2024 Soiree Artist: Catalina Garreton

Nicart Gallery is proud to introduce Catalina Garreton, who will be creating a live painting during the Soiree d'Artiste this year. She will be painting during the entire event on the stage next to the musicians letting their music and the vibe and atmosphere of the event guide her brushstrokes. The creation she paints will be auctioned off at the end of the 2-day event with our generous sponsors agreeing to match every bid up to $1000 in donations to the Coos Art Museum's Art Education Fund. Thank you Catalina, and all our amazing artists for your contributions towards making this event truly a memorable one!

Catalina's Artist Statement:

Born to an interior designer and director of photography, I declared at age 4 that I wanted to be an artist when I grew up. I learned at a very young age that I could make things with my two hands that brought joy and created connection to others--and I haven't wanted to stop since that day. I also believe in making bold moves, on and off the canvas. In 2014, I circumnavigated the globe: I taught classes and exhibited in Barcelona, created commission paintings in Singapore, studied batik in Bali, found inspiration from both the aboriginal and contemporary conceptual artists of Australia, and connected with my artist tribe in Chile.

This world has so many incredible corners; connecting with people in all walks keeps me inspired every day. I find inspiration and pattern constantly in nature and am obsessed with translating the emotion found in nature onto my canvas; I also love the structure and patterns found in our urban spaces and my pieces tend to dance with both of these themes. I adore and respect so many places in the world, and the gratitude I have for living each day is at the base of everything I do.
