Art in the Library

May 2 -June 15 “Atmosphere” Pastels by Catherine Howe

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.
