The 4 Pastelists Art Show @ the Cornwall Public Library

CORNWALL, NY –The Cornwall Public Library will be exhibiting the works of The 4 Pastelists—Cathy Cahill, Lily Norton, Judy Byrne, and Cathy Prager. There will be an opening reception in the library’s community room on Friday, December 1 at 3:30pm. Their work will be on display until the end of December.

All four are from the Newburgh area and have been painting together for several years. They have been exhibiting their works separately, often winning individual honors and awards at various area art shows, as well as together. They all find working with pastels as a medium exciting. Cathy Prager explains, “I like putting my hands directly in the colors; it’s the most direct expression, you can literally see the fingerprint of the artist in the work.” Cathy Cahill finds painting with pastels to be “tactile, luminous, vivid, and forgiving.” Judy Byrne “loves the feel of applying pastel to paper and board and then watching the colors build and the forms take shape. It’s my passion. There is nothing else like it.” The primary focus of their work is the beautiful Hudson River Valley, getting their inspiration from landscape, river, and mountains. As Lily Norton says, “we live in a beautiful part of the world and I want to paint it.”
