Grace Cathey

Grace Cathey resides in Waynesville, NC.

Grace Cathey graduated from Haywood Community College’s Fiber Arts Program. She later completed a continuing education welding course that led to her life’s work, metal art. She is a perfect example of a craftsperson that has embodied the art and the business of selling her craft.

Grace chose a very unique location for her gallery: the inside of her husband’s 80 year old service station! Because of this, media often come calling…including Home and Garden TV, Rand McNally Atlas (Editor’s Pick) and most recently, Our State magazine. Her work has been shown numerous places including the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and United States Botanical Garden in Washington, DC. Her Four Season’s Apple Tree was chosen for Hendersonville, NC Public Art and the NC Arboretum has many of her pieces in their permanent collection. When asked to design an ornament for the White House Christmas Tree, she represented North Carolina with a metal fabrication of a Plott Hound, our state dog.

Grace gives back to our community in so many ways: giving of her time and art to local fundraisers, offering her Sculpture Garden as a fun and welcoming spot for tourists and locals alike, and providing leadership to the Waynesville Gallery Association. She is also a mentor to other local artists.

Grace has gained a national reputation by her drive and desire to grow and be challenged as an artist. She achieves her goals through hard work and the spirit of entrepreneurship. As stated in the April issue of Our State… she is “a whirlwind of a woman.”
