Born in Lisbon, Portugal, Catarina Coelho is a mixed-media artist whose drawings and printmaking work explore the subject of landscape as a testimonial site of the human interaction with a territory. Cartographic spaces, borders, and the problem of the division of the page recur in her work as forms that seek to point out broader historical narratives. Recent collective exhibitions include: Childs Gallery, Boston; Washington Art Association, CT; Danforth Art Museum, MA; Second International Print Biennale, Yerevan; Venice International Art Fair, Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi, Venice, Italy; European Contemporary Print Triennial, Toulouse, France. Her work is in several collections including the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts of Boston.

This class is limited to 6 attendees. Free parking is provided.
