The process of creating art functions as an energetic escape valve for me.
Mary-Jo Lough is a vivid and detailed abstract artist based in Calgary, Alberta. She expresses her unique vision on stretched canvas with acrylic and multi-media. She has completed Abstract Painting and Colour Theory courses at the University of Calgary and numerous workshops to further her practice. Additionally, she has been mentored by Master artists and is currently a facilitator for several artist groups with Mastrius.
In 2020 her triptych piece “The Sky is Crying” was featured at the Renovation show in Calgary. Her piece “Good Thing Gone” achieved Gallea’s “The Best of Abstract Art” in 2020, and in 2021 “Complicated Contentment” achieved the same honor.
Lough exhibited her interactive piece, “To Flourish” in the 2022 Boxed Stories project at LOFT 112 in Calgary. Additionally, she hosted solo exhibitions for her Atypical collection in 2022 and her Divergent collection in 2021 at LOFT112. In the Summer of 2022, she was chosen to participate in the collective shows, Abstract² - The Square Foot Show and 100 Days of Summer – The Mastrius Art Show.
Lough was chosen to exhibit at the juried Emerging Artist Showcase at the Ranchmen’s Club in 2020. In 2020 she exhibited in the “Viral Art” show at the Galleria Cael in Milan, Italy. Lough was also selected for the curated Art Market & Craft Show in both 2020 & 2021 and is currently preparing for 2022. Lough’s work is held in several private & corporate collections.
