Catherine Burgess RCA graduated from the University of Alberta Fine Arts Department in 1975 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (distinction) degree. In 1974, she attended Yale University’s “Yale at Norfolk” summer program.

She has been working in the medium of abstract steel and mixed media sculpture for over forty years. Her work has been widely exhibited, including solo exhibitions at the Mendel Art Gallery, Saskatoon (1980), The Whyte Museum, Banff (touring 1982-83), The Edmonton Art Gallery, Edmonton (1990), Sable-Castelli Gallery, Toronto (1991), Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Lethbridge (1995), the Nickle Arts Museum (1995), the Alberta Gallery of Art, Edmonton (2012), and gallery, Montreal (2017.) She has participated in over 70 group shows, both nationally and internationally.

Her sculptures are represented in over twenty public collections across Canada. Downtown Edmonton is home to two of her outdoor commissioned pieces: The Big Rock, 1995 (a collaborative sculpture done with Sandra Bromley) and Return, 2001. In addition, she has produced public sculptures for Banff and Guelph.

She is also currently part of an artist’s team called Tricycle (along with Walter Jule RCA and Roy Mills RCA) that has collaborated with ISL, a landscape engineering and architecture company, on several large-scale outdoor public art projects in Sherwood Park.

Catherine currently lives and works in Edmonton.
