Kate McGloughlin started painting on Monhegan Island in September, 1997, with her mentor and friend, Robert Angeloch. Since the she’s returned nearly every September to finish what the started—an engagement with light, surf and the craggy forms that make up Monhegan’s coastline.

 

“Working on Monhegan has been the most galvanizing experience I’ve had as a plein air painter; the crash of surf and the lamentation of a gull mix with salt spray and drenching September sunlight to create some of the most exciting painting conditions which I’ve ever worked, I’m just as happy, though, when the sky is heavy with storm clouds and the coastal water put a shiver in me just to look at them—it’s those gray against the soft yellow greens on Manana resting across the wharf that continually send me reeling. I’m grateful for every weather pattern and every little skiff that poses on Fish Beach for being there waiting to be painted.”

 

McGloughlin maintains a home studio in New York’s Hudson Valley, is an Instructor of Landscape Painting and Printmaking at the Woodstock School of Art, and leads International workshops with Destination Arts Creative Workshops.
