ABOUT FACE: The Faces of Catherine Durrett

May 3 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Golden Isles Arts & Humanities is pleased to share About Face, The Faces of Catherine Durrett in the Millie Wilcox Gallery opening with a community reception during the First Friday festivities on May 3, 2024 from 5-8 p.m. at the Ritz Theatre in Downtown Brunswick.


About Face features faces. “Just face it. We ‘read’ each other by our faces,” says Catherine. “Our expressions give us away…even our pets will pull a face.” Catherine Durret’s whimsical style draws the eye to the faces of her subjects. The expression seen gives way to an empathetic reaction. Whether human or animal, her faces translate the emotions within.


Ms. Durrett honed her artistic skills at Portland Art Museum School, Atlanta College of Art, Art Institute of Atlanta, NYC School of Visual Arts, NYC Pratt Phoenix and private tutoring. She has worked in various fields including model making for television and print ads; 2-D animation for an interactive educational CD; architectural photography; and commercial illustration. Her own business, *Pena Haku, includes murals, faux treatments, trompe l’oeil and paintings. Catherine has enjoyed group and solo shows in New York City; published art in Jezebel magazine in Atlanta, Georgia; and painted four panels for the original AIDS Quilt hanging in the White House. Back in the Golden Isles, Catherine continues art locally. She has contributed to The Mural Project in downtown Brunswick, has designed and painted sets at The Ritz Theatre, and does business and residential specialty painting in the area.
