Kat Allen - Abstract
August Mayor's Choice Reception will be August 12th from 4:30pm-6pm at Grand Forks City Hall.
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.
