Val Nelson

An honors graduate of Media Arts at Emily Carr College of Art + Design, at the age of twenty-eight Nelson received the Helen Pitt Award, for which her work was included in a group show at the Vancouver Art Gallery. A 2003 semi-finalist in the Royal Bank Canadian Painting Competition, Nelson was recently a resident at the Vermont Studio Center on scholarship, with the assistance of a Canada Council Travel Grant. In late 2013 her work will be included in International Painting Annual 3 published by the Manifest Creative Research and Drawing Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, with essays by Matt Metzger and Willie Robertson. Her work can be found in many collections including the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Canada Council Art Bank, the Online Artist Registry of White Columns in New York, as well as numerous private and corporate collections in Canada, the US, the UK, and Dubai.

“The highlight of the show…loose, intelligent brushwork…”
—Christopher Brayshaw, the Georgia Straight

“…intellectually and artistically daring work”
— Gilbert Bouchard, Edmonton Journal

“…she crafts the kind of post-photographic painting that does its best to make an eye dulled by electronic media vibrate anew. I am happy to say she is largely successful.”
— Terence Dick, Akimbo

Val Nelson's next exhibition will be May 3 -17, 2014 with an opening reception Saturday May 3rd from 2-4 pm at Bau-Xi Vancouver.
