This biography from the Archives of AskART:
From Heller

Painter Catherine Wharton Morris Wright was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1899. She was voted an Associate of the National Academy of Design in 1933, but it took another thirty-six years to become a National Academician in 1969.

Wright was also a member of the Newport Art Association; Baltimore Watercolor Club, Maryland; New York Watercolor Club, New York City; American Watercolor Society, New York City; and the American Federation of Arts, Washington, D.C.

Two retrospective exhibitions accorded Wright took place in 1952 and 1954 at the Newport Art Association in Rhode Island, and the Woodmere Art Gallery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania respectively. The former exhibited over thirty-five years of the artist's work. She won a prize in 1924 at the Philadelphia Art Club.
