Arts Centre’s My Revelstoke and Further Works from Art in the Park shows are certain to stimulate you
By David F. Rooney
From Ron Nixon’s exquisite pencil work to the dazzling colour palettes of Nicola McGarry and Tina Lindegaard, the Visual Arts Centre’s two new shows, My Revelstoke and After the Event: Further Works from Art in the Park, provide a veritable feast for the senses.
The shows open Friday, July 2, at 6 pm and fill all three of The Centre’s galleries.
I had a sneak preview of the shows as they were being hung by Jackie Pendergast, The Centre’s executive director, and I have to say there is work in there from some of the city’s best-known and least known artists. Not only are there paintings by McGarry, Lindegaard, Cecilia Lea and Sue Davies, but there are two from someone I never thought of as a visual artist: musician and teacher Shannon Sternloff.
The show is definitely worth seeing on several levels but why read my ramblings when you can scroll down and see 10 representative images from the two shows:
