Arts Advocate Catherine Cathers to Seek and Reward Miami’s Top Working Artists

CORAL GABLES, FL (March 5, 2024) –  The Corral & Cathers Artist Fund at the Coral Gables Community Foundation will award $50,000 in grants this Spring to professional  artists representing a range of  disciplines in the visual arts community. 

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

The Corral & Cathers Artist Fund encourages professional 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 Corral & Cathers Artist Fund supports professional artists and thus does not fund organizations, educational institutions or students.

“I’m delighted to be able to financially support the working artists of Miami-Dade through a charitable fund at the Coral Gables Community Foundation,” said Ray Corral. “In meeting many of them for the first time, the vibe was amazing – these twelve are highly practiced professionals, and the opportunity is huge.”  

“Last year we were delighted with the diverse, professional artists we were able to support. Ray and I look forward to working with the Community Foundation to renew this grant opportunity for our community.” said Catherine Cathers, arts advocate and consultant. 

Selected arts professionals will be invited to join a collective exhibition.
