Opening Show: Katie Leahul
Aug 31 (11:00am - 3:00pm)
For the very first time, meet Calgary artist Katie Leahul at Avens Gallery as her live painting develops before your eyes. They are beyond thrilled to welcome this skillful and inspired western Canadian artist to their team. Katie Leahul is a self-taught emerging artist who resides in Calgary, Alberta with her husband and their two beautiful sons. She was born and raised all over Alberta, from Calgary to Bonnyville and everywhere in between. Working primarily in acrylic on canvas, her process involves extensive layering of shapes and colours combined with expressive drop painting. The subject matter she works with can vary from still life to the vast landscapes of places she has travelled throughout Alberta and Canada. Katie’s passion for artistry and love of colour and design inspires her to create spirited paintings with an underlying esoteric structure.
