Gallery@501 presents “This Something. A Thirty Year Survey. 1989-2019”

The Gallery@501 is pleased to present This Something. A Thirty Year Survey. 1989-2019 by Edmonton based sculptor, Catherine Burgess.

Artist Catherine Burgess has been making and exhibiting her work for 40 years. Since graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Alberta in 1975, she has maintained a studio in Edmonton, mounted 25 solo exhibitions and shown in over 60 group exhibitions in Canada, the United States and England. 

This exhibit features a collection of Ms. Burgess’s artwork over the last 30 years. Ms. Burgess describes her sculptures as conversations among whole things. Each individual element contains an awareness of its own form and materiality, its own completeness, stored remembrances, energies, meanings and connections.

This Something. A Thirty Year Survey. 1989 - 2019 opens on Thursday, November 14 and is on display until Thursday, December 19. The public is invited to attend the exhibit’s opening reception on Thursday, November 14 at 7 p.m. in the Gallery@501 (501 Festival Avenue, Sherwood Park).
