The Revelstoke Visual Arts Society held its first art exhibition of the year in the Revelstoke Art Gallery on Friday, April 11, and what a colourful, refreshing and spring-like show it was.
172 colour-starved people attended the opening of the society’s In My Garden Members’ Show and Bruce Thomas’ solo exhibition, Next Passage Out. If they were anything like me they were seeking balm for their colour-starved souls. And they certainly got that.
There were well over 120 paintings and 3-dimensional works in both shows and if they didn’t satisfy your desire to leave winter behind then you were beyond redemption. But I’m certain everyone there enjoyed themselves. Certainly the art-sales figures suggest that. Executive Director Jacqueline Pendergast said there were $1,400 in sales. That makes it an especially successful show.
If you missed the opening you can still see these beautiful shows until May 2. Drop on down to the gallery in the Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre at 120 Wilson and catch a taste of spring.
Here are a few images form the opening:
