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
This exhibition features four internationally known, award winning artists who work in a wide variety of media and styles. Inspired by nature and their West Coast surroundings they have created works which pay homage to textile traditions while each establishing their own unique, contemporary style.

Vancouver’s Carylann Loeppky is a fine art painter. Her compelling portraits and figurative paintings focus on the feminine form, charm and illusions.
Inspired by 17th century french court painters and 20th century french surrealists, Loeppky draws on classical techniques to bring the canvas to life. Her figures haunt you with their gaze, please you with their poses and bewilder you with their secrets.
Marlene Lowden invites you to join her for an artist talk about her series called a “Blind Contour Homage.” The work is a celebration of Canadian female artists. Many of these women are significantly under-recognized in the Canadian art canon. Marlene has studied artists from several regions, each with diverse cultural heritages and will share some of the fascinating stories that she has learned about them.
This is a FREE 1 hour workshop to introduce you to blind contour drawing. Drawing is a skill set that we can all learn and this technique is a path to drawing with more confidence. It is easy to learn and very relaxing! No drawing experience necessary and this workshop is available to kids 10 years and up if they are accompanied by an adult. You must register in advance as there is limited seating. Please contact Marlene Lowden at email@example.com to register.
‘Blind Contour Homage’ (oils) by Marlene Lowden, ‘Veil’ (sculpture) by Lucja Barker and ‘What Lies Beneath’ (pastels) by Louise Valentine. Exhibition closes Sunday March 8.
