After more than two decades
of creating story-images, Wathen Doggett's art has evolved
into an expressionistic style that sings of playful fun
in outrageously vibrant colors such as the powerful purples,
sunny yellows and intense turquoise in Fish, Again.
She paints the things she loves and offers us glimpses into
her world through her delectable, straightforward art. While
at times she presents easy-to-understand composition, perfect
harmony and balance, her next offering may find us conjuring
up some complex flight-to-fancy through her use of fluid
movement and ambiguous tilt-of-head or mix of textures.
Always interesting, never predictable, her art invites us
to join her on a joyous journey.
Doggett's art has been exhibited many
times in the Union Sentinel, Union County, GA, and she has
been the featured artist at many galleries in GA. Articles
have been written about her and her work in the Times-Courier
of Ellijay, GA and in the North Georgia News of Blairsville,
GA. Her work has been accepted for juried competition in
the 31st annual "Ocean Shores Fine Art Show" in
Ocean Shores, WA, in the "Twelve Cubed" show at
the Art Center in St. Petersburg, FL, and in the Gilmer
Arts & Heritage Assn. 1st annual juried exhibition in
Ellijay, GA. The artist's work is currently displayed at
galleries in GA and LA, and hangs in many private collections
throughout the United States.
