Pat Beaton





Pat Beaton is a visual artist who works in printmaking and installation, as well as community-based projects, which have included quilts, carving, and murals. She has been involved with grunt gallery, Malaspina Printmakers, and Dundarave Printshop since 1986. Her strong links to neighbourhood, community gardens, and grunt gallery gave rise to the Mount Pleasant Community Fence Project, a carved cedar fence that stands alongside the community garden at 8th and Fraser. The theme of the human/nature relationship in this urban environment is often reflected in Pat's community projects. Projects such as Calling Birds (2003), Luna, the moon (2001), and Coyote Facts and Folklore (1996) have engaged the public in the artmaking process and asked each participant to consider the natural world that exists in this very urban environment.
