About the Artist: Edward Cating, is an oil painter, mechanical engineer, and former long haul truck driver and log truck driver who found a home in Ridgway with his wife, Kathleen O’Mara in 2014. Cating says the move was a long time coming. “I first encountered Ridgway as a 17 year old seeking Fourteeners in the San Juans, and have been longing to return ever since. The mountain beauty here truly is sublime, and I aim to see it, paint it, and make its immensity more personal. If I can add a little whimsy, that is all to the good.”
Edward took a 4-yr Diploma in Studio Art from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. A veteran of the Boston gallery scene, and numerous group shows in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont, he was most recently represented by The Harrison Gallery, Williamstown, Massachusetts. His work has been called “intimate, energetic, evocative, and expressive.”
