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. Among her commissions are over 100 original paintings for Intrawest Resorts displayed in Whistler BC; Mont-Tremblant, QC; Kauai, Hawaii; and Palm Desert, California. Goldberg attended Langara College Fine Arts, Ontario University of Art and Design and Emily Carr University of Art and Design.

Her mentors include prominent Canadian artists Gordon Rayner and Dennis Burton and British painter, Alan Davies. She currently teaches classes at Emily Carr University of Art and Design as well as private studio workshops. Visit her website at lorigoldberg.ca

There will be time for questions and conversation during and following the talk. The event concludes by 9 p.m. Refreshments are provided. This event is presented by the Surrey Art Gallery Association in partnership with the Surrey Art Gallery, and with support from the Arts Council of Surrey.
