Salmon Cycles  –  a new exhibit which opened at the Campbell River Art Gallery this week – features the works of Powell River artist Megan Dulcie Dill and is inspired by the extraordinary life cycle of the Pacific Salmon.

The public is invited to meet Dulcie Dill this Saturday at the Gallery’s ‘Super Saturday’ event from 1-3 p.m. where the exhibiting artist will provide a nature-inspired art activity for people of all ages.

The drop-in program is free (although donations are accepted) but children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. The Campbell River Art Gallery gratefully acknowledges Marna Disbrow’s sponsorship of the Super Saturday program.

Dulcie Dill’s mixed media paintings feature salmon moving through their watery world, navigating paths between water, stones and beams of light.

She uses a unique painting technique that involves liquid grounds, canvas rotation and transparent colour washes, which create a luminous quality in her work. For Dulcie Dill, the salmon is a symbol of rejuvenation and strength.

She is also inspired by the Coast Salish First Nation tradition and spirituality and her most recent paintings are titled in translations of Sliammon words.

Dulcie Dill has studied at the University of Toronto’s Fine Art Department, the Victoria College of Art, the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design and the University of Victoria.

She has had solo exhibitions at the Gibsons Public Art Gallery, the Comox Valley Public Art Gallery, and Halifax’s Eye Level Gallery, among many others. Salmon Cycles will be at the Campbell River Art Gallery until Sept. 16.
