Fantastic landscapes! Bold splashes of colour! Different takes on reality!
If you love things like this then you’ll appreciate the new Art in the Park exhibition at the Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre.
This exhibition, which runs until December 2, is sponsored by Parks Canada, the Friends of Mount Revelstoke & Glacier and the Revelstoke Visual Arts Society. There are 51 works on display by 14 artists — six from Revelstoke and eight from elsewhere in our region. More than 170 people attended the opening.
“The work is a real treat with lots to view and experience including some audio visual pieces,” RVAS Executive Director Jackie Pendergast said after the opening. “There is also a silent auction of pieces from the group of artists who went to Yoho National Park who are fundaising for their next artistic venture. The hours of opening have been changed. The Gallery is open 12.00 – 4.00p.m. Tuesday to Friday and Sundays. We hope people will drop by during their lunch hour.”
Their work is absolutely superb and certainly worthy of viewing, or purchase. Only five or the paintings are not for sale. The rest range from $100 to $2,500 and are worth well the money.
If your are interested in high-end art this show should not be missed.
The show is on until December 2. Here are a few images from the exhibition’s opening last Saturday, November 12:
