Join us for an intimate in person talk with Kate Tupper. Kate Tupper is currently exhibiting at The Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre, however her work have been seen all across Canada. After graduating the ‘C’ level welding program in 2004, the following years working in trades and heavy construction have given Kate a firsthand view of traditional uses of materials. A lifelong love of craft, nature, and ecology influence her method, texture, and composition. Sculpture and storytelling have always come easily to Kate, and her earliest memories are of making things. Growing up beside forest and orchards, on the beach and in the garden, her studios revolved as they do, depending on weather and season. Kate spends her summers as lead to Shambhala Music Festival site’s Art team, designing, facilitating, and mentoring large scale multi-media installations. She finds that the juxtaposition of leading a large team in a fast-paced environment and the often solitary process of building sculpture the rest of the year offers a healthy variety of design and execution in two very different situations.
