Kate Walls, Gallery Manager
Kate Walls is a Cape Cod native whose artwork reflects the beauty of her surroundings. She works in several mediums and styles. This versatility gives her the opportunity to switch from fine art to illustrations. Her more traditional pieces she exhibits in shows and galleries. Lately most of her energy has been going into illustrations.
In 2010 she illustrated Leslie Hatton’s “Cape Cod ABCs”. Her desire to write and illustrate her own book led her to creating “Cape Cod Bog Dog” in 2011, and “Bog Dog’s Beach Adventure” in 2012. She worked with Kathleen Ready Dayan and illustrated “Cape Cod Bear” in 2012 which was soon followed with “Cape Cod Bear Goes to Boston” in 2014.
Kate is the Gallery Manager at Cape Cod Art Association. Her artwork has exhibited in many venues all over Cape Cod. She has also participated in several community projects (Cape Cod Whale Trail, Strokes of Genius, Art in the Village, Sampson Fund, National Marine Life Center and many others for local schools and libraries).

There you will find samples of her work, information about her books, and a listing of future exhibits/book signings. On her pages for the “Cape Cod Bog Dog” you will find coloring sheets, videos of the real bog dog and of the men harvesting the bog and much more.

Louann Corrado, Gallery Assistant
As a long time, award winning artist working in watercolor, pen and ink, pastel and oil, Louann is currently focusing on landscapes, marine and seascapes in oil. “I believe very strongly that a painting must create a mood, inspire an emotion and cause the viewer to linger. Besides moody landscapes, I very much enjoy the discipline of lush still lifes.” Besides her formal education, she has studied with master artists on Monhegan Island, Provence, and Cape Cod.
