Stop by the Campbell River Art Gallery today to see two fascinating exhibitions created by B.C. artists.

The exhibition ‘to follow a line,’ is in  the Main Gallery and features the work of six Vancouver Island artists, brought together by guest curator Sara Vipond. This group exhibition focuses on the direct and physical process of drawing – the relationship between the hand, the drawing material and the paper. Each artist brings her own unique style to the show, illustrating the many possibilities of mark making. Special thanks to Matt Gionet of Earworm Sound for providing headphones for this exhibition. ‘to follow a line’ continues until June 22.

Artist Tiki Mulvihill’s installation ‘Fire Successional,’ is currently in the Discovery Gallery. ‘Fire Successional,’ sponsored by Bruce Laing Electric, allows visitors to enter as active participants in a hypothetical environment recently ravaged by fire.

This exhibition draws attention to the fragility and resilience of Western forests. Mulvihill is a fine arts instructor at Capilano University in North Vancouver and her art practice focuses on site-generated installations. ‘Fire Successional’ captures the aftermath of forest fire, with charred elements taking on the role of burnt timber, the surrounding terrain and even fleeing animals and humans. ‘Fire Successional’ continues until July 20.
