Artist Lori Goldberg will give a talk at the Surrey Art Gallery March 5.

Creating without boundaries

Lori Goldberg gives a talk at the Surrey Art Gallery March 5 about her artistic process.

For East Vancouver artist Lori Goldberg, there are no fences between her house, garden studio, and neighbour’s backyards.

On March 5 at 7:30 p.m. as part of the Thursday Artist Talk series at the Surrey Art Gallery, you’ll hear how these “limitless boundaries” in many areas of her life are so important to her creative process.

“Curiosity, experimentation, and engagement of all my senses are the guiding forces that assist me to create unique and original art,” Goldberg says. “My personal experiences inform my work but through the process of exploration, the work goes beyond the individual into universal truths.”

Enjoy an evening where Goldberg will take listeners on a journey that begins in her formative years and winds itself to the present.

Goldberg is a Vancouver artist whose paintings have been exhibited in Canada and Europe. Collectors of her work include the Canada Art Bank, The City of Vancouver Art Collection, and the Interstate Bank in San Francisco.
