Escondido Artist Opens studio to Benefit San Diego Humane Society
December 6 and 7, 2014 from 10 am – 4 pm each day at 2048 Ridgecrest Place Escondido CA 92029

A suggested donation of $10 will go directly to support the Escondido Humane Society.
Cathy Carey is a local Escondido artist who has opened her studio twice a year for fourteen years to neighbors and friends to view her latest creations. Last spring she included the Escondido Humane Society as a beneficiary of the event, to honor her love of animals and to bring help to a terrific organization. Cathy’s paintings range from coastal California scenes, to back country gardens of agave and succulents, rolling hillsides of Spain, vineyards of Tuscany to southwestern vistas of horses and mountains. No matter the subject, you can tell a Cathy Carey painting from the vivid color and the spirit of joy you feel when you see them. Many of her subjects originate in her garden which is an acre of hilltop overlooking the gorgeous Lake Hodges area of North San Diego, a hidden gem.
Cathy’s love of all animals and especially her often painted studio dogs, Yogi, Kira, and spirit girls Sazi and Zuni, caused her to want to help the local humane society. After meeting several of the staff she realized what an incredible job they do for lost or abandoned animals who desperately need to be in loving and safe environments. A suggested donation of $10 will go directly to support the Humane Society, which provides animal care, adoption, humane education and animal protection services to north inland San Diego County. In thanks for the communities support of this event, Cathy Carey will match $5 for every donation.
