Please join us for our December Art Wall Opening Reception on Sunday, December 3 from 12:00 noon – 1:30 pm.

Catherine Tirr is an award-winning artist whose works have been exhibited widely in Europe and the United States. Tirr was born in England and studied at Chelsea School of Art in London. Her work in one of her first group exhibitions at the Royal Academy of Art, London, in 1979 was awarded the Stowells Trophy.
 
Catherine Tirr is well known for painting expressive watercolors of various landscapes.She describes her interest thus, “the landscape we see is a combination of chance events, relationships and juxtapositions, constantly in flux. Yet the shadow of what was formerly there can still be traced, just as random boulders deposited along a broad moraine suggest the shape and scope of a glacier that is no longer there.”
 
After successful shows in England and Iceland, Tirr relocated to the U.S. and has since exhibited at Detroit’s Robert Kidd Gallery and Fischer Gallery, the Sixth Street Gallery in Royal Oak, Michigan, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the Armand Hammer Museum, and San Francisco’s Olga Dollar Gallery. Catherine Tirr has been teaching the Plein Air Painting class in the Santa Monica Emeritus College program since 2000.
 
Catherine Tirr is also the author of “Saturation,” and “The Color of Hindsight,” both portfolios of her paintings. Her work is represented by Double Vision Gallery, Los Angeles and The Gascoigne Gallery, Leeds, England.
