NVA Member :: Kathy Harwood Hutchinson

The NVA is made up of such talented members!

Kathy Harwood Hutchinson is an artist working in soft pastels. She has been known to foray into other mediums like acrylic and watercolor, but generally her work is luminous, wonderful pastel.

Kathy's subjects range from soothing landscapes to delightful figures to this exceptional vista from Denali in Alaska.

We know when Kathy is on her way into the classroom because we hear her wheely-cart coming down the hall. How else would a pastelist bring along all those wonderful sticks of color?

Kathy has been President of the Foxboro Art Association and writes a column for their monthly newsletter which is a true delight to read. She studies with Kim Morin Weineck which is worth noting because Kim was in the first Kindergarten class that Kathy taught! Her work is on display at the Art Gallery at Patriot Place where she is a permanent artist member.

Recently the NVA installed a show at the South Shore Dermatology Physicans' office. What a great venue this is! The work looked fabulous and we are happy to be displaying our art to a captive waiting-room audience.

Here are some photos to show you how great the show is!

Cindy Kerr enjoys visiting all mediums. Here are three pieces from her. The top piece is a pastel of a marsh. The lights reflecting in the glass don't allow the piece to resonate with viewers as it does in person.
