Artist Ken Blackburn with a work from lunar

Catch Blackburn’s lunar glow

An exhibition of new works by Ken Blackburn will open in Campbell River

The seeds the Sun Sower lost secretly grow beneath the lunar glow.

An exhibition of new works by Ken Blackburn will open in Campbell River on Nov. 15 at 5 p.m.

Entitled lunar, the exhibit will open in two locations: at 5 p.m. a showing of smaller scale works will be held at Impressions Gallery at 990 Shoppers Row.

Then at 6 p.m. the larger scale works will open at the Incubator (the ‘Cube’) at 977 Alder Street.

“This body of work has been produced at the Cube over the past year,” says Blackburn. “The Cube is a very exciting development for Campbell River as we plan to evolve this space, through the Campbell River Arts Council, into an ‘ction Research Center.

This centre will be a site in which to develop community outreach programs, alongside being a forum for community discussion.”

Blackburn continues, “The lunar exhibit serves as an example of what an artist can achieve working within a previously empty downtown location.”

The exhibit will be available for viewing at the Cube on Nov. 16, 17, 24, 25 from 1-4 p.m.

Blackburn will give an artist’s talk about the works in lunar on Saturday, Nov. 24, from 2-3 p.m.

For more information contact the Arts Council at 923-0213 or Impressions Gallery at 286-1612.
