Art in the Library: May–June
May 1 - June 15
“Atmosphere” Pastels by Catherine Howe
May 2nd – June 15th
Artist’s Reception Saturday, June 1st at 2:00pm
Hopkinton resident Catherine Howe is passionate about pastels because of their pure pigments and rich colors. She draws inspiration from nature, both water and sky. In her pastel images, Catherine tries to capture moments of silence and movement in the sky; the calm before the storm, and the relationship between the shifting atmosphere and the constant changes in the sea. She is inspired by color, light and shadows.
Catherine teaches pastels classes to children and adults at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts. She is a juried associate member of the Pastel Society of America, member of Pastel Societies of Cape Cod, New Hampshire and Maine and is one of eight artists in the Lake Whitehall Artisans Group.
Her work can be seen in private collections throughout the US and abroad and she does commissions.

April 1st–June 15th “Close To My Heart” Clay works by students of Arti Bhola Goulatia at the Ceramics Garage
Ashland resident Arti Bhola Goulatia was born in India and grew up surrounded by rich culture, vibrant colors and diverse art & architecture. Influenced by this wealthy reservoir, her creative journey started with a foray into the world of fashion. She studied fashion design and worked extensively in the corporate world for over ten years. Her widespread experience in the apparel industry, particularly her sensitivity to the interplay of texture, design and pattern helped her transition into fine arts when she started working with clay. She has been creating beautiful works of art since then.
Arti is the owner of The Ceramics Garage studio in Ashland, where she continues to follow her passion and teaches clay classes to children and adults. Arti’s work is also available for sale at the studio. For more information about the artist and classes, visit www.theceramicsgarage.com and facebook page https://www.facebook.com/
