Latcham Art Centre is proud to partner with the family of Catherine Anne Courtney to celebrate art and creativity with this exciting program. Catherine Anne Courtney (1944-2017) was a devoted lover of art, nature and poetry. Catherine liked to create paintings of nature when she had the opportunity. She was also a collector of rocks, stones, oak and red maple leaves from wherever she travelled. She often visited the gallery and loved to engage in conversation with anyone about the artists and the subject of the artworks. Latcham Art Centre is pleased to recognize Catherine Anne Courtney and the support of her family.
