The Bosque Gallery’s exhibition, A Thread Runs Through, will be featuring the work of Cathie Kayser, a local artist and printmaker. She works with various printmaking techniques including lithography, etching, relief, and monotype. Kayser pulls source material and inspiration from a compendium of artifacts and images that have been amassed over time. Kayser writes, “Over the last several years I have assembled a library of images: my drawings and photographs, maps, charts and graphs, abstract textures. On any given day I can walk into my studio, pull multiple images… use an existing matrix or create a new one… to make new compositions.” This exchange between her own previous creations, source material, fabrics and textures and her feelings uniquely inform the compositions and imbue them with her self-proclaimed theme: loss. She states, “A thread runs through my body of work. The thread is loss: loss of parents, loss of purpose, loss of direction, loss of balance. This thread unifies my work.” This sense of loss is given aesthetic form by the way in which she assembles visual information while combining old, found, and newly created elements in her prints.

by Marguerite A. Baldwin

The talent and passion of Marguerite Baldwin featured in her painting exhibition “The Origin of the Series: An Evolutionary Tale” will be on display in Lone Star College-CyFair’s Bosque Gallery this summer Aug. 6 – Sept. 19. Baldwin, who is currently exhibiting at different venues in Houston and Katy, earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in photography from Sam Houston State University in 2009. “I am what is called a ‘non-traditional’ graduate, which simply means that I had a career, raised a family and began college after my children were done with school and beginning their families,” she said. “Painting and drawing became a passion as I got my degree in photography.” Developing her personal style “has been and adventure just moving through the series and watching it branch out,” she said.
