We've got some gorgeous new arrivals just in time for Spring here at The Village Gallery!
Linda Skalenda is returning to the gallery with six new pieces, many featuring beautiful floral scenes. These colourful paintings feature bold colours and are making all of the staff at the gallery dream of warmer weather!
Chris Alers is bringing us three pieces this month. After practicing as a gold/silversmith for over a decade, Chris transitioned to painting which allowed absolute freedom of expression. Chris' work was featured in the December 2017/ January 2018 issue of International Artist Magazine and was chosen as a finalist in their competition for abstract/experimental art. Her work will be available to view anytime after April 7th.
Ed Oldfield stopped by the gallery last week to bring us some of his amazing raku vases. These vases are adorned with real pussy willows that were handwoven to create a beautiful and intricate trim.
Showing with us for the first time, Amanda Jones has brought us pieces showcasing some beautiful west coast scenes. Amanda grew up by the seaside and often draws inspiration from the rugged, yet beautiful B.C landscapes.
We are also excited to be showing new wood carvings from Richard Shaw. Richard often aims to show the beauty and power of animals through his work. Just as we find artifacts depicting animals from civilizations long gone, Richard is, in a sense, creating modern artifacts which reiterate our connection to the natural world.
