Artwalk: Meet Mary Kate Woodward

Her work can be seen at HollisWealth, Castleaird Plaza

Name of Artist: Mary Kate Woodward

Venue: #17 HollisWealth, Castleaird Plaza

Artistic Medium: Drawings

Hometown: Castlegar

Artist’s Bio and Statement:

I am a working artist, presently creating line-art works themed around two collections: Odalisque to Modern Nude, and Relationships and Connections. The latter collection was partially funded by a CKCA grant. Techniques focus on simplification, abstraction and exaggeration facilitating design and flow of line, limiting the representational, concentrating on variety and beauty of line. Genre subjects and their relationships, inspire the compositions.

My work is shown and sold in galleries, one-person, group, juried, club, and pop-up exhibitions, also in specialty shops and art rentals. Presently it is displayed locally at my permanent venue, Roger Carlson’s Hollis Wealth office in Castleaird Plaza, at the shop Yes Please, and with Castlegar Arts and Crafts at In-Gear Mechanical, as well as in Grand Forks Gallery 2’s art rental/sale program. My book Butterflies and Butterfly Gardening in the Pacific Northwest including drawings of larval host plants is sold at Kootenay Gallery and Yes Please.
