The Artwork of Catherine Durrett


Golden Isles Arts & Humanities is pleased to host Catherine Durrett and her Fanciful Tales Visually Imagined artwork in the Millie Wilcox Gallery opening with a community reception during the First Friday festivities on January3, 2020 from 5-8 p.m. at the Ritz Theatre in Downtown Brunswick.


Catherine Durrett was born in Atlanta, Georgia, to artist parents Barbara McFadyen and Joe Durrett. Traveling and living across America with her brother, Catherine was exposed to an inspiring, complex cross section of people with their everyday joys and struggles. Along the way, her parents’ artwork - bold, colorful serigraphs and detailed ‘pen and ink’ etchings – helped shape Catherine's emerging style.


Ms. Durrett honed her artistic skills at Portland Art Museum School, Atlanta College of Art, Art Institute of Atlanta, NYC School of Visual Arts, NYC Pratt Phoenix and private tutoring. She has worked in various fields including model making for television and print ads; 2-D animation for an interactive educational CD; architectural photography; and commercial illustration. Her own business, *Pena Haku, includes murals, faux treatments, trompe l’oeil and paintings. Catherine has enjoyed group and solo shows in New York City; published art in Jezebel magazine in Atlanta, Georgia; and painted four panels for the original AIDS Quilt hanging in the White House.


Back in the Golden Isles, Catherine continues art locally. She is contributing to The Mural Project in downtown Brunswick, has designed and painted sets at The Ritz Theatre, and does business and residential specialty painting in the area. For more information and art go to: or
