The Campbell River Arts Council wrapped another artist’s image around a city PRV (Pressure Reducing Valve) box.
Artist Nanci Cook has had her image wrapped onto the third PRV box in the city. This box is on Orange Road at the north end of Campbell River.
Of the image Cook says, “When I saw the photo of the box that needed artwork, I thought of the landscape it would be in — forested acreage, perhaps dry in the summer, when more people would be using the trails. I thought it would be a great experience to be hiking and encounter a large seascape, in all the blues of the distant islands. This painting was started above Hyacinth Bay on Quadra, plein air, then finished in the studio. I wanted to show the grandeur and serenity that I felt there – recreating it for a few moments for others.”
Cook’s image was selected after the Public Art call that the Arts Council administered on behalf of the City of Campbell River.
