Becki Petersen and Runa Gedam - Conversations
For April, we are welcoming local artists Becki Petersen and Runa Gedam to The Carrot Gallery. This exhibition is a conversation between two local artists who draw inspiration from an environment not found in their day-to-day.
Becki Petersen is a visual artist living in Edmonton, but her heart will forever stay in the mountains and among the clouds which is where she draws a great deal of her inspiration from. Petersen focuses on the shapes, movement and emotions of the sky using acrylic, her preferred method, to translate those sensations to canvas. For more of Petersen's work see her Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/BeckiPetersenArt/
Runa Gedam was born in India and moved to Canada in 2007. Gedam reflects that being so far away from home can be very lonely but also inspiring. The artist misses the colours, the chaos and the hustle of everyday life she grew up with in India, and those memories inspire the colours and subject of her paintings.
