Blue Foot Cafe highlights local artist

A local resident has her art showcased at the Blue Foot Cafe for the month of July.

Kate Furler, a Wareham resident, said she began painting in the 1970s. She attended art school before moving to Ireland, where she taught painting for 10 years, she said.

Later, she moved back to Massachusetts and began teaching painting courses in local senior centers and art centers here.

After spending some time in Blue Foot Cafe, which opened earlier this year on Main Street, Furler said she struck up a conversation with cafe owner Katie Gallagher and arranged to have her art displayed for the month of July.

Gallagher said artists interested in being featured at the cafe can contact Blue Foot at the

Some of Furler’s favorite subjects to paint are in her garden, she said.

“I love finding hidden treasures during my daily walks in the Swifts Beach neighborhood,” Furler said in an email. “I also look for photos of animals with expression.”

Seventeen of Furler’s pieces are available for viewing at the cafe, which is located at 379 Main St. Furler also paints on commission, she said.
