Author Event: Grace Cathey - Sunday, July 14th at 3:00pm

by Blue Ridge Books on 07/14/13

Fire and Steel: The Sculpture of Grace Cathey celebrates Grace Cathey's art. A biographical chapter explores her artistic roots. Subsequent chapters tell stories, in her own words, about some of her most remarkable pieces: from a four hundred pound dahlia, to a huge Toad, to custom designed flower, trees, eagles. More than 150 color photos offer readers the opportunity to explore the full range of Grace Cathey's sculpture.

This book is a collaboration between Grace Ullrich Cathey, whose award-winning metal sculptures mark her as a unique artist in the mountains of North Carolina, and distinguished historian Sara M. Evans, author of Born for Liberty: A History of Women in America and numerous other books and articles. Evans taught the history of American women at the University of Minnesota from 1976 to 2008. A native Carolinian, she spends spring and fall in western North Carolina.

Together with great Renaissance sculptors like Ghiberti and Giambologna, and with the 19th-century American master Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Grace Cathey shares a gift rare among artists. Her exacting craftsmanship coaxes metal into works of art that are alive with the likeness of graceful, vibrant, playful creatures. The delight the eye and light up the heart.
