Kate McCavitt of California works on an art piece.

Cobalt Fine Art Galleries in Tubac will launch its first major exhibit of the year with a season-opening event featuring three Southwest artists.

Colorado-based Cynthia Duff and Mary Coleman, along with California artist Kate McCavitt, will be showcased during Tubac’s Fall Arts Festival on Nov. 26-28.

During the festival, McCavitt will demonstrate her luminous acrylic pouring techniques using torches, gesso and golf leaf applications.

“This demonstrates the many unseen layers and techniques behind the works, which really builds appreciation for the artist’s talents,” Mesia Hachadorian, owner and director of Cobalt Galleries, said in a news release.
