Yet another successful art show has come to a close down at Pynelogs Cultural Centre and, without missing a step, we are pleased to present our fourth juried show, which will feature six very talented local artists.
Whether you are interested in pottery, photography, oil, acrylic or mixed media, there is sure to be a piece that speaks to your art-loving soul.
Paula Cravens, now a household name in the Columbia Valley’s art world, will be presenting a number of her acrylic paintings. Cravens was born and raised in a farming community in central Illinois, but has lived in the valley since 2004. She focuses her artistic explorations on colour and texture, and works with historical photographs to create timeless scenes in her signature style.
Cranbrook’s Jane Murray describes her mixed-media work as process-oriented, breaking the barriers between abstraction and representational form. Her pieces explore the vibrant energy of our natural environment, reminding us that we exist on — and are made of — the earth.
Fernie-based oil painter Tara Higgins is forever entwined with her natural surroundings. She will be unveiling her newest creations, which explore trees as monoliths.
Invermere-based photographer Kimberley Rae Sanderson has been enamoured with light from a very early age. She owns and operates a successful photography, printing and framing business in Invermere, and is always out with her camera capturing the world around her. Her pieces for this show are a series capturing the texture and pattern the June rains left on the landscape surrounding Toby Creek.
Pauline Newhouse has been creating exquisite works of pottery for over 40 years. This year she will only be showing her work at Pynelogs and has named her offerings “Tagines, Bean Pots and Salads on the Side.”
Invermere’s Deb Ede loves colour, lines and has a fascination with faces. She grew up in the valley, left, and returned, and is looking forward to showing some of her latest works, which she describes as very personal, coming from an emotional place in her soul.
The show will run until Sunday, August 12, so come on down and check out our latest show.
