Visit the Campbell River Art Gallery before Nov. 5 to enjoying two one-of-a-kind exhibitions.
In the Main Gallery, artist Shyra de Souza’s installation Phantom Limb, is a porcelain installation featuring found objects. Sponsored by Broadstreet Properties Ltd., the installation is large in scale and reminiscent of a dinosaur museum as well as a domestic display.
De Souza is an inter-disciplinary artist based in Calgary whose work ranges from sculpture installation to animated film, collage and drawing. Her work has been screened and exhibited across Canada, the U.S. and Europe.
In the Discovery Gallery is an immersive installation, created by artist Twyla Exner, called Structure of a Substance: Cluster. Sponsored by Healthyway Natural Foods, it uses discarded telephone wires to create whimsical imaginings of an alternative ending for the residues of the electronic evolution.
The craft-based technique transforms the material of discarded wires into individual works and collective installations. Exner is a Canadian artist, currently living in Grande Prairie, Alta., who uses the materials and images that comprise electronics as inspiration to create sculptures, drawings and installations that imagine a landscape where our electronic devices have gone awry.
Be sure to visit the Campbell River Art Gallery from Tuesday to Saturday between 12 p.m. and 5 p.m. to enjoy these two exhibitions. Both exhibitions continue until Nov. 6.
