For a 360 degree view of the show on site:
Kathy has exhibited widely in juried shows across Canada and the United States. Her work is held in the permanent collections of galleries as well as private, public and corporate collections from the Yukon to Newfoundland, Europe, the Middle East, China and Australia.
This is her first solo show at Cube Gallery and it is an honour to bring an exhibition of this caliber to our patrons. The show is also an evolution of Kathy’s work as a largely self-taught artist. First inspired by the rugged landscape of the Madawaska Hills, she began weaving tapestries reflecting the unique colours, shapes and light of the Ottawa Valley. She also explored stained glass and pastels before ultimately taking up oil painting.
Kathy also grew up surrounded by the art of her father, renowned Arctic artist Maurice Haycock and his painting partner of 30 years, A.Y. Jackson of Canada’s Group of Seven. Early Arctic trips with her father introduced her to the lure of the North and inspired a sweeping, graceful rhythm in her work.
It is Cube Gallery’s great pleasure to showcase the work of Kathy Haycock, an Ottawa Valley treasure, a pre-eminent artist and a painter of international stature.
