Cathey memoir on life, metal sculpture

Written by 

art catheyMetal sculptor Grace Cathey will hold a signing for her book, Fire & Steel: The Sculpture of Grace Cathey, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. July 5; 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 6; 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Aug. 2; and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 3, at her studio in Waynesville. 

There will also be a signing from 3 to 4 p.m. July 14 at Blue Ridge Books in Waynesville.

An exploration of the life and work of Cathey, Dahlia Books will publish the book, which is a collaboration between Cathey and the distinguished historian Sara Evans. It introduces Cathey, tells the story of how she came to metal art after years as a professional weaver and painter, and how her work has grown and changed. It also describes some of the techniques, especially finishes and use of color, that draw on Cathey’s experience as a weaver, watercolorist and print artist.  

The work is primarily an art book that introduces readers to the full range of Grace Cathey’s work, from major pieces of public art to a variety of custom pieces for homes and gardens. Cathey’s work is part of the permanent collection at the North Carolina Arboretum and Chimney Rock State Park and has been exhibited at the United States Botanical Garden in Washington, D.C., and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh.
