Katy Dove

7 January – 25 February 2017Katy Dove

Main Art Gallery

A memorial exhibition of drawings, collages, paintings, prints and animations by the much-loved artist Katy Dove (1970 – 2015). Katy created meditative spaces through her combinations of sound and image, and contemplative responses to colour and rhythm. Katy was very interested in presenting her work to younger audiences and found children to be especially receptive to her work.

Born in Oxford in 1970, Katy grew up in the Black Isle and studied Psychology before receiving a BA from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee during the 90’s. Moving to Glasgow, she developed her art practice alongside a number of musical projects, including Muscles of Joy. Solo exhibitions of her work included Transmission Gallery; Platform and GoMA, Glasgow; Collective and Talbot Rice, Edinburgh; Pump House, London and Spacex, Exeter. Dove was very active in artist-initiated projects commencing in her student years in Dundee with the Unit 13 group and as part of Full Eye with Anne-Marie Copestake and Ariki Porteous.

Once the exhibition comes to an end in IMAG’s art galleries, it will travel north to Thurso Art Gallery and St. Fergus Gallery in Wick from 4 March – 15 April.
