These wandering ways continued through his adult life, before he too settled down long enough to earn a BFA from Alberta College of Art + Design and an MFA from the University of Regina. There his graduating show was titled Daydreams and other tiny revolutions. He has received numerous grants and awards including a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Masters Grant and his projects and exhibitions have been shown in Canada, the United States, and, Australia.
Lambert’s theoretical and studio research interests include: social practice, participatory work, art and craft theory, craft culture and, the role of both the artist and the art object in and out of the gallery. His work is often a simple day to day activity - daydreaming, napping, letter writing, or, sharing dinner for example. Art is more than objects, ideas or actions in a gallery. For Lambert - art is offering something; it is being empathetic towards the audience and through the audience, the world.
