Harmony Arts Festival, August 2-11 and ‘New Works: Sculpture and Printmaking’, Bowen Island, August 14 – September 16

Posted on Jul 29, 2019

Hi everyone!

There’s a lot going on at the studio right now as I prepare for two very different events. Here is a taster of some of the new work on show at Harmony Arts and following that a sneak preview of pieces that will be in the Bowen show at The Gallery, Snug Cove.

Hope to see you at either or both!

NEW WORKS: Sculpture and printmaking. Bowen Island exhibition at The Gallery, Snug Cove.

Last year myself an 3 other Bowen artists came together to discuss having a collaborative exhibition on island. In a few weeks time that work goes on display to the public.

My theme and inspiration came from my quiet walks in the woods around Cape Roger Curtis where I do most of my ‘good thinking’.

A more visceral response to the life force; the meeting of Human & Nature.

These tall porcelain columns range from 12″ to 22″.

I’m very excited to step out of my usual working practice of designed, functional pieces to create a small body of work that has a deep emotional resonance for me.

Whatever your plans this summer, I wish you all the best for relaxation, fun and good times with the people and in the places you love!
