Hello and happy harvest season! I'm excited to share that I have two upcoming shows:
First up is Harvest, a solo show at the Imperial Taproom on NE Alberta in Portland. Opening night is August 30th as part of the Last Thursday art walk on Alberta. I'll be there starting at 6pm working on small paintings so stop by and say hello! I'd love to tell you all about the inspiration behind the pieces and share my process with you

Just one week later I'm returning to The Remains Gallery as part of their September show, If It Is. Opening night is September 7th from 6pm to 12am. There will be live music, drinks and a whole lot of wonderful artists. It's a great excuse to get out to the gorge.

This year my work has been heavily influenced by the botanical life we've cultivated over the millennia, how it transforms from Spring to Autumn, and our relationship to it. I'm beginning a new series this September where I'll be building on these themes and expanding them into a folktale narrative. You can follow me on Instagram to see my process and progress @caitlynnabdow.
If you have any questions or you're interested in my work don't hesitate to get in touch, I love talking about these things!
Lastly, here's a behind the scenes look at framing and documentation day. This picture was taken just before things got really messy.
