ARTIST INFORMATION:

The Magical Stories of Cathy Horner
Sept 3–Nov 3 | Harvill Gallery
Cathy Horner’s collage art is inspired by her 100 year old farm house in Johnson City, TN. At an early
age she discovered that she loved to create. By age forty-eight she found her muse in the art of
collage. Horner’s collage art quickly found its way into art galleries and collectors’ homes. Her art
is carefully crafted from her collection of ephemera from old magazines, newspapers and catalogs,
coupled with her appreciation for all things antique and vintage.
