Two new exhibits coming to gallery 2 Aug. 22
Aug. 22nd will be a busy day for Gallery 2 with the opening of two new exhibits featuring artists, Susan Andrews Grace, and Sonja Gartner.
Gartner, a self-taught painter, explores the complexity and spirituality of Mandalas, geometric figures that represent the universe in Hinduism and Buddhism.
“There is something inherently satisfying and healing about completing a piece that has hundreds or even thousands of wee bits that make up one big image.”, explains Gartner about her painting process.
Currently living in Nelson B.C, Grace is a visual artist working on textile pieces exploring the idea of the sacred and what we know, or don’t know about it. Her ‘Underwritten’ sculpture will be on display.
“Underwritten contemplates the language of earth’s beauty,” tells Grace about the meaning of her piece, “When we think of the sacred we look up. Earth underwrites flesh and a more-than-human-dream we share with a cloud and the archetypal worm”.
The openings of each artist will be from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Saturday, August 22nd at Gallery 2. All are welcome and admission is by donation.
Gallery 2 gratefully acknowledges the financial assistance of the City of Grand Forks, The Canada Council for the Arts, British Columbia Arts Council, and the Province of British Columbia Gaming, Phoenix Foundation, our members, donors and sponsors.
