Kastner, Andrea

Andrea Kastner is a painter living in Kamloops, British Columbia, and is a current finalist for the RBC Canadian Painting Competition. Born in 1984 and raised in Montreal, she completed a BFA at Mount Allison University and an MFA at the University of Alberta.  Her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions across Canada, including the Esker Foundation’s inaugural show, The New Alberta Contemporaries, in Calgary, AB.  Her paintings of basements, alleyways and trash bring to light the hidden underbelly of things we seek to ignore. Her plans include upcoming solo exhibitions at Harcourt House in Edmonton and Hamilton Artists’ Inc.
