Cathy Crofut has been working in the A.R.T. process for 15 years. Her work has been shown at the Berkshire Museum, the Worcester Art Museum, the Lichtenstein Center for the Arts, the Clark Art Institute’s Lunder Center at Stone Hill and Good Purpose Gallery.
In 2014, Crofut was commissioned by the law offices of Parese, Sabin, Smith & Gold after attorney Virginia Stanton Smith saw Crofut’s work at a CATA art exhibit. The piece took nine months for Crofut to complete, measures 2 ¹∕₂’ x 10’ and is the biggest painting she has competed to date. It was unveiled in April of 2015.
“Painting helps me get my emotions out on paper, rather than holding them inside. I get to express myself and my feelings. I’m happy when I paint and proud of my accomplishments.” – Cathy Crofut
