Connie Most is a visual artist and member of CATA’s craft cooperative, CATAdirect, which meets weekly to create handmade products sold in local retailers. Most’s specialty is designing unique hand-stamped tea towels, bringing her creative vision to an item that can be used in daily life.
Most has been creating artwork since she was young, often making work alongside her mother, who is also an artist. Though Most has only been using the A.R.T. technique for a few years, she has sold multiple paintings and her work has been exhibited at the Good Purpose Gallery, the Lichtenstein Center for the Arts and other venues across the Berkshires.
“Painting is a lot of work and it tires me out—but I love doing it!” – Connie Most
“In this painting, Connie used the A.R.T. “laser technique” to weave a tapestry of luscious warm reds, yellows, and oranges against this cool lavender underpainting. Very deliberate color choices and laser moves.” – Pat Hogan, CATA faculty (Click the video “What is A.R.T.?” below to see the technique in action)
