More about our guest artists -
Diverse mixed media artist, CATHRYN COFFMAN, has been involved in art for over sixty years. A Fine Arts graduate of UCLA, she excels in oil painting, pastels, pen and ink drawings, charcoal, graphite, and watercolors. Born in Vancouver, Cathryn credits her Canadian grandfather with instilling in her a love of nature. As a cattle rancher herself, for many years she raised, trained, and showed horses. Her passion for animals, specifically horses, dogs, and cats, is evidenced in her beguiling artwork. She also enjoys depicting historic buildings and landscapes. Some of her award-winning work is displayed in local businesses: Valley Truck and Tractor, Maggie Capitano Insurance, and Jeannie Hawkins Pet Grooming in Marysville. Cathryn has shown her work in The Brick Coffeehouse in Marysville, Visions Gallery in Yuba City, the Second Saturday Art Show in Sacramento, and has been awarded second place, twice, in Best of Show at the California State Fair. Her work is now on display at the Marysville Art-O-Culture Gallery. Upon retiring from a teaching career spanning 28 years in Yuba City, Cathryn now travels, finding inspiration for her beautiful, realistic, and occasionally impressionistic, artwork.
Local potter and gourd artist, DANARAE DOUB-REED, has been creating exquisite home decor and functional pottery pieces for years. All of her high-fired pottery work is oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe, and many pieces can be used on cooktops, barbecues, and in fire pits. Danarae’s artwork is simple yet elegant, incorporating natural products, such as deer antlers, cowhide, feathers, and natural stones. Her rustic pottery and gourd birdhouses are particularly appealing. Danarae has won many awards and has exhibited in a number of galleries. Notably, these include: KVIE’s Art Auction Fundraiser for three years, Yuba College, the Davis Pottery Festival, and in Yuba City at Birds Unlimited, Visions Art Gallery, Sunsweet and Stephen's Farmhouse. Currently, she is exhibiting at the Art-O-Culture Gallery in Marysville. She is also an active member of the Sutter County Fish and Game Commission.
