About the event

Karen Cain has had a professional studio on Gabriola since 1996. Featured in Gabriola's most beautiful homes and widely collected. Original art with signature techniques and processes which have produced the popular series 'Contemporary Frescoes' and 'Sculptural Paintings'. 

"It is my response to the energy of the living world that drives the engine of my art-making. the interrelationship between nature, art, and the human spirit is the focus of my continuous exploration. She is veteran of the Annual Gabriola Arts Council Annual Thanksgiving Studio Tour."

"Jazz and abstract paintings are a match in FLUID THOUGHT, where rhythmic notations and expressive line and form follow the flow of the present moment, layered in sensuous colour. Let your eyes feel the vibration and the distillation of energy, coming together and falling apart. The effects of listening to particular music, within the  solitary practise of painting is recorded visually here, a personal record of a journey, learning to let go and let the paint speak. The cool West Coast jazz of Mike Allen and his trio was the inspiration for this new work." - Karen Cain
