Kat Allen - Abstract
August Mayor's Choice Reception
“Thank you so much to Mayor Brown for selecting me to display my art at City Hall, and for all of his wonderful staff and the North Valley Arts Council for arranging the opening event. I would also like to thank everyone who attended the reception, especially my family–for my extraordinary upbringing and for supporting me endlessly over the years. The Mayor’s Choice exhibit is such an amazing opportunity, and I’m so thrilled to have been selected for the honor.” Kat Allen
Kat Allen’s artwork will be on display at City Hall until November. Please stop by there and enjoy the beautiful paintings.
Abstract art is an emotion, memory, dream or story found within the paint on a canvas. Oftentimes, it is all these things–bound and freed–together as one. I started painting as a young child–unbound and free–on the northwest prairies of Minnesota, where The Section was my ocean; oaks and cottonwoods–my skyscrapers. To this day, whenever I start to paint, I always find myself being drawn back into that wide, open world–where all one can hear is the wind between the leaves of giants and waves of wheat washing on endless shores.
