Cathy Breslaw at Mesa College Art Gallery

Macro Views, Micro Wonders by Cathy Breslaw The exhibition is on show from Sept 8 to Sept 30 at Mesa College Art Gallery ( 7250 Mesa College Dr, SD 92111) More info:. Allesandra Moctezuma  619-388-2829 

Cathy Breslaw's exhibition is not  about a complicated installation. It is about the sea and sky and ocean and one women's intense interpretation of the world around her. Breslaw is obviously fascinated with materials and how they come together to make things unexpected and ethereal.  That is why I was so surprised to be most interested in her drawings. I found them to be a more direct and less labored connection to her soul. Yes, I use that word freely as there is a lot of soul searching in this work. Even these drawing on a substrate of plastics of various kinds which make them appear alive, have that same fascination with materials. But they also have a more intimate nature which I find particularly strong. They are new and at the same time connected to a long history of line making.

 It is a testament to the show that it was a cool fresh breath of air on the hottest day of the year. I recommend that you go and find some relief from the heat and discover something soul soaring for yourself.
