Cathy Allen Bio:

Cathy collaborated with Noah and continues to explore a variety of traditional and nontraditional media as an artist. Currently, rusted and weathered materials collected from the Mojave Desert inspire three-dimensional sculpture and site-specific installations. Conceptual themes that relate to the domestic and the temporal are prominent. Though primarily an assemblage sculptor, she has also created earthworks, altered books, and performance works.  For the past twenty-five years, her work has been displayed in galleries and venues in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Palm Springs, California. It is collected and privately owned worldwide.   Allen holds a duel career as a professor of Fine Arts at Copper Mountain College. Her Masters in Fine Arts degree comes from The Claremont Graduate University and Bachelors in Fine Arts degree from Otis/Parsons Art Institute.  She is active with regional arts organizations such as the Palm Springs Art Museum and their Artists Council, as well as the Arts Connection of San Bernardino County, and the historical 29 Palms Art Guild.
