    Artists Anni Hunt, Elizabeth Topham & Sande Waters explore themes of order & chaos, continuity & renewal, within nature & the self through dynamic mixed media work.

    Hunt's experimental work involves abstract mark making on canvas with wax, oils & inks & stitching back into the marks to create texture & complexity; evocative of the complex cycles of renewal & continuity in nature.

    Topham's gestural paintings explore the chaos & structure of Rubus armeniacus, the non-indigenous blackberry bramble which over the last century has naturalized here in the Pacific Northwest. The work examines the physical complexity of the bramble - the patterns, structure & chaos -  as a metaphor for our own entanglement with self, others & nature. 

    Waters' work is an expression of the transformative & sometimes chaotic elements in life, manifested through colourful fluid abstract paintings & prints combining layers of painting & photography. 

    Opening reception: Thursday, January 9th, from 5:30-7pm

    Experience unique views of the natural world around us with painter Xiang Su & photographers Kimberley Buller & John Stewart.

    Su's series of acrylic paintings depict cropped views of rivers & lakes, the reflections of surrounding trees, & the leaves, petals & grasses that float along the surface. The nourishing power of the waters is captured in vibrant colours & full energetic compositions.

    Buller's nature photography spans macro views of insects to panoramic mountain scenes. Each piece has a singular focal point, honing in the primary subject to emphasis a particular aspect of the natural world that Buller finds fascinating.

    Stewart's photographs are concerned with the power of the elements to shape the world around us. His work captures the rocks & logs along local shorelines that are transformed into spontaneous sculptures by the forces of wind, rain, snow, the burning sun & waves.

    Opening reception: Thursday, February 27th, from 5:30-7pm
    Everyone welcome!
