Asta Dale, On the Run No. 2


Asta was born and had her primary and secondary education in Germany during and after the Second World War. She completed her Nursing Training in Hamburg, emigrated to London, England where she did some postgraduate studies to qualify for State Registered Nursing and lived there for 8 years before emigrating to Calgary.

She started drawing and painting in London and continued for many years before beginning full-time studies at the then Alberta College of Art and graduated with a Diploma in Fine Arts in 1982. She continued part-time studies at the University with a completion of her B.F.A. in 1989.

Since then she participated in several workshops at Emma Lake and at the Atlin Arts Centre. She travelled widely all over Europe, Australia and lately in South America.

She had various group shows in Toronto, Edmonton, Banff, Halifax, Calgary and Red Deer. She participated in the annual Arts Festival in Red Deer and had her last solo show entitled “Pulse of Istanbul’ in the same venue.

In her paintings she recycles, reconstructs and manipulates. She is concerned about the wasteful and exploitative attitude of today’s society and the harmful effect it has on our environment.
