"There is no place that helps define the limits and possibilities of the world we live in than a sidewalk.
Particularly in the rain. Here e shuck and jive among sharp edged umbrellas, trying not to trip on each other or get poked in the eye. This instinctive, urban dance is universal and umbrellas are the great equalizer. Under them, we are all the same, no matter where we come from or where we are going. Some of us are harder to see, hunched and lost on the edge of glimmering lights and wet reflections. Pause for consideration on this urban march."
New profile on North Vancouver Community Arts Council website.
"Kathy Daley sees a lot of umbrellas around her new home in North Vancouver B.C.
They are the focus of her most recent works: #Umbrellamovement. Umbrellas are a symbol of that temporary refuge that keeps us moving in a storm. Umbrellas are the great equalizer. When the weather hits, we are all the same.
Kathy has been in group and solo exhibits at art galleries in Alberta and Manitoba since 1995, bringing urban and rural scenes to life, primarily in oil. Her art is in private collections in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Ottawa. She has had solo exhibits at The Kensington Fine Art Gallery in Calgary and The Front Gallery in Edmonton. Kathy is a juried member of the Alberta Society of Artists and an Active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists."

Kathy Daley's most recent series #umbrellamovement captures her new home of North Vancouver with umbrellas as the central characters in the urban scenes. Choosing to highlight the wild, wet reflections of rain, and umbrella-capped people in urban neighborhoods, these oil paintings offer a vibrant depth, warmth, and luminosity to the outdoor drizzle.
"Underneath umbrellas, we are all the same, no matter our race or sex, we are all facing the elements, trying to shuck and jive through life." - Kathy Daley
Guy Hollington uses traditional Italian glass-blowing techniques and tools, creating all of his pieces without the use of molds. He incorporates cane, pulled glass with a central core of colour, twisted cane, and murine, a layered coloured glass that is pulled and cut in many of his works. The hand blown glass vases and bowls on display are colourful, geometrical, fluid and practical.
