RAC Member Catherine Adamson is delighted to open an exhibition of her work at Lipont Place (a RAC Organization member) this month!
The exhibition runs from March 2nd to March 28th, with a free public opening on Saturday, March 2nd, from 2pm-4pm. Regular exhibiton hours are Monday-Friday, 10am-5pm, with weekends by appointment.
Catherine Adamson holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Visual Arts and English Literature from the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) (2003). While there, she held a solo exhibition in the university’s gallery with 50 works of art. Next, she spent three years researching, writing, and publishing a non-fiction book: (2006) Heidi Dawn Klompas: Missed Opportunities. Post book, Catherine began exploring different methods of art making. Her ‘free-flow’ method soon emerged, with her allowing the paint to flow freely from the end of a flat stick and down onto a prone canvas. Building layers of colour, texture, and movement, she creates an intriguing depth within her paintings that viewers find exciting. An Emily Carr University student wrote to tell her that she was “Van Gogh meets Jackson Pollock.” She has sold over 350 pieces to date and is well on her way to becoming one of Vancouver’s best-known artists.
