PRESS RELEASE: Corrina A. Thurston at Blue Cat Cafe, Burlington

Corrina A. Thurston, an artist working out of Central Vermont, has a display of her artwork at the Blue Cat Cafe and Wine Bar in Burlington, VT, from November 15th to January 31st.

Showcased are a selection of Corrina's colored pencil pieces, for which she is known. Her vibrant detail and unique style make her artwork easy to recognize, and although her pieces are drawings, they resemble paintings and most admirers are shocked when they discover the medium used. With every piece Corrina tries to push the window of what colored pencil can do, and one of her goals is to bring colored pencil into the spotlight and have it be recognized and treated as the fine art medium it can be. Come see for yourself what colored pencil can do.

Corrina is an emerging artist, only 21, and began drawing after she was diagnosed with a chronic illness in 2010. She is self-taught, and although she cannot draw full-time, she spends what good time she has making art.

Come to a wine tasting or have a delicious dinner at the Blue Cat Cafe and Wine Bar on Lawson Lane in Burlington, VT, and view the artwork! They use many local foods, specialize in steak and seafood, as well as vegetarian options, and have over 300 different wine options. All art on display is for sale.
