"Katherine Colborn presents Creators and Cultivators: A Daily Ritual - a series of pastel drawings and lithograph prints that explore the spiritual value and quiet dignity in the daily moments of average lives.  Primarily figurative, her subject matter often highlights the work of people that act as creators and cultivators for their families, their community, and their world in quiet, and often unrecognized, ways. Katherine’s near-illustrative style offers an unspoken and engaging narrative to the viewer, and her inspiration to create this body of work stems from a wide variety of artists, writers, and theologians, particularly Johannes Vermeer, Jules Breton, Edgar Degas, Robert Henri, Thomas Merton, and Saint Ignatius Loyola."
