About the Artist

Cate M. Leach is an award-winning artist whose style is distinguished by a love of line, a sensitive appreciation for composition and the awareness that resolution often comes by eliminating the nonessential. Having spent many years as a dancer with George Balanchine and the New York City Ballet, Leach finds inspiration and meaning in subtle gestures and an economy of form.

Leach’s paintings, prints and assemblages have been exhibited at museums and galleries throughout New York and Connecticut, including Lyman Allyn Art Museum, Housatonic Museum, Sacred Heart University in CT, and in NY at LaGuardia Airport and the Prince Street Gallery. She is a member of the Silvermine Guild of Artists (New Canaan, CT), The Concepts Group (Darien, CT), the Center for Contemporary Printmaking (Norwalk, CT) and Connecticut Women Artists.
