Artist: Painter, Sculptor, Illustrator

I am excited to announce that my art has been selected by the State Department’s Art in Embassies program for a 2-3 year group exhibition at the US Embassy in Bucharest, Romania! Resurrection Diptych and Textured Abstraction XXV are the two paintings on exhibit.

Basic Space Gallery in Portland will be hosting a solo show of my works for the month of October. I am incredibly excited about this wonderful opportunity! I will be present for the evenings October 5 and 6.  20% of all art sold through Basic Space Gallery during my show will be donated to either the Children's Cancer Association (in honor of Danny Keagbine) or the St. Anthony School scholarship fund (buyer's choice).

"Karen Cruickshank of Portland, Oregon, is direct in her commitment to painterly quality especially seen in her work 'Textured Abstraction IX'.   The richness of the color and linear passages creates a delicious visual tastiness."
