Graced by Their Presence
by Leanne Stothert
Opening Reception: Thursday, April 25
Exhibit Continues Until: Tuesday, May 28
Children’s bodies were Leanne’s first love in painting, but this past winter she began to paint something else that she holds sacred; the wild animals that surround us in the Kootenays. Leanne feels privileged to live nestled by mountains and valley bottoms that are home to these beautiful creatures. She cherishes the sighting of a coyote in a field, a moose wading in the shallows of the quiet arm of a river, a herd of Elk communing in an open field. She hopes that as the human population grows in this region we will work for a balance of coexisting with wildlife and that we will continue to give them the respect and space they deserve.
works by Karen Tamminga-Paton & Keri Lehr
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 30th at 7pm
Exhibit Continues Until: Tuesday, June 25th
Kari Lehr and Karen Tamminga-Paton live and work in the beautiful Crowsnest Pass, Alberta. The work in this exhibition is a wonderful combination of beautiful paintings that are intensely personal and thought provoking. Through their use of evocative colour and organic imagery Kari and Karen express their world view as artists. They are working their way though their mothering/nurturing years and the changes that come with mid-life, a universal experience that they express in a very personal way. Looking at their work it is no wonder that they have chosen to exhibit together; their work naturally complements each other leaving the viewer with a sense of whom the artists are.
