Opening Reception: Theme & Variation – CANCELLED

A solo show by Jean Curry

“Theme and Variation is a form of musical composition that begins with a main melody (theme) that is altered or changed in some way throughout the piece. These alterations are called ‘variations’.

When working in a series, an artist can also take a theme (image/concept) and use variations of it throughout a body of work.

Music and art are intertwined in my life. I am a choral singer. I am a fibre artist. Both are very process oriented methods of creating and use problem solving skills.

Art Exhibition: Joy: For the Joy of It

Daily from Jul 9 – Aug 9. 11am to 4pm. Five artists (Greta Guzek, Motoko, Jen Drysdale, Kirsten Guzek and Josefa Fritz Barham) explore the theme of Joy. “In the muddy waters of humanity, the arts often choose to express sorrow over joy, disaster over achievement, malice over goodwill. Though opposites amplify each other, we wonder if it is harder to find symbols or marks of joy. We have hope that at the core, whether quiet or radiant, life and every expression of it, is joyful; and during these Covid times staying in touch with our positive energies is imperative!”

Art Exhibition: Helen Geddes – The Goldbird Variations

to August 2nd. Please visit us to view Vancouver-based Helen Gedde’s beautiful gold bird paintings (38 in total!).
‘If the viewers find themselves able to connect with these new found feathery friends, that are usually so fleeting in their appearances, my job is done. Their momentary presence in body and song is a joy I don’t want to live without.’

Opening Reception: “connected” POSTPONED

What connects you to the world? Are your connections strong shared experiences or are you delicately held together by a single thread? Are your connections worn and strengthened by the passage of time or are they shiny-new and untested?

We are all connected somehow to something… come and explore them
