The self-proclaimed “Twisted Sisters”—Dian Magie, Lorraine Cathey, Cathy Langdon work respectively in clay, fiber art and weaving. Dian is creating plates, cups , bowls and baskets special for children (and adults) to claim as their own, “just in time for the Easter Bunny.” Lorraine will have her unique German mohair teddy bears, “each with their own name and personality.” As for Cathy, she will add place mats and hand towels for the show, all woven “in spring colors.”
Dian, Lorraine and Cathy are daughters of the nationally-known portrait and landscape artist Ruth Goldsborough, who created and taught portrait painting classes in Hendersonville until her death at 95 years old in 2013. “We each pursued art in a different direction, one doing wood fired pottery, one weaving and myself in needle felting and wet felting,” said Lorraine. All three sisters live in the area.
An opening reception for “Twisted Sisters” will take place from 5 -7 p.m. on April 4. All three artists will give demos in their chosen mediums on April 13 from 1-5 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public.
