Art Encounter: Jim Park - Windows into a Natural World

July 13 - August 6

Jim Park captures an infinity of natural details in a single frame creating images that appear to be ever moving and ever changing, much like the seas, lakes and forests which the artist paints. Park’s works are windows into a natural world that we all long to pull in a little closer. The realism of the artist’s work combined with the smallness of the highlighted scope draws viewers into pieces that become thriving with sound; one can almost hear the crashing of the sea, the gentle babble of calmer waters or the wind gently blowing through trees and mountains. Utilizing cool, haunting hues or warm, enveloping tones Park expertly captures the evocative serenity of the sea, the chameleon like quality of water and the endless swirling surface of a marine world.  Foam, spray, surf and light are perfectly juxtaposed in the artist’s almost mosaic like renditions of coastal beauty and landscapes. We created a Jim Park space in the gallery for you to view his latest works!

Art Encounter: Haida Gwaii Revisited by Richard McDiarmid

July 13 - August 6

In the year 2000 a group of nine artists including Alan Wylie, Mike Svob, Richard McDiarmid and Michael O'Toole started a series of annual painting expeditions along the rugged B.C. West Coast including Haida Gwaii, painting on location in settings, often accessible only by boat or seaplane. These were “voyages of inspiration” and the camaraderie and shared experiences, resulted in many location paintings as well as continued studio works that followed. It is with gratitude that I acknowledge, this experience was made possible by a Haida friend, his wife and son and their seventy-five foot converted fishing vessel. Now in 2022, Richard McDiarmid still reflects on this inspirational visit and the current showing of small works revisits some of the experiences.
