Corral & Cathers Artist Fund Created to Support Local Professional Artists with the Coral Gables Community Foundation

Awards of up to $5,000 Expected in Early June
from the Coral Gables Community Foundation  

CORAL GABLES, FL (April 13, 2023) – Creative professionals devoted to artistic expression face unique hurdles and even the best working artists sometimes need assistance.  Offering that support in Miami-Dade County is the ambition of the new Corral & Catchers Artist Fund at the Coral Gables Community Foundation.

Professional artists are invited to apply at:

Established by Coral Gables resident and founder of Mosaicist, Inc. Ray Corral, and Catherine Cathers, arts advocate, the Corral & Cathers Artist Fund serves to recognize and support regional artists with grants to further their professional development and skill in a variety of disciplines and mediums. 

“I’m humbled by the support and success I’ve enjoyed with the community here in South Florida, but I know it’s not typical of what artists usually encounter throughout their expressive career” said Ray Corral, founder of Mosaicist, Inc. A mosaic architectural art company. “We are privileged in extending support to other fellow community artists to further help grow awareness and artistic support in our community”  

The Fund encourages artists who have dedicated their lives to developing their art. Grants are intended to assist with artistic exploration, supplies, exhibits, project-related expenses, residences, artistic professional development and opportunities. 

The Fund supports professional artists and thus does not fund organizations, educational institutions or students. Awards are limited to artists living and working in Miami-Dade County. 


The Coral Gables Community Foundation inspires impactful philanthropy through charitable funds and programs using local knowledge, expertise and trusted relationships. The Foundation is proud of awarding more than $11 million to worthy causes throughout our community and manages 21 scholarship funds. Learn more at
