Earth Walker by Lisa Gibbons is part of one of two exhibits opening at the Campbell River Art Gallery.

New gallery exhibits touch the cycle of life and the living earth

The community is invited to meet the artists and celebrate the opening of two new exhibitions

Two exhibitions created by regional artists will open at the Campbell River Art Gallery on Sept. 18.

The community is invited to meet the artists and celebrate the opening of two new exhibitions at the Campbell River Art Gallery, Thursday, Sept. 18 at 7 p.m.

Passages and Transformations, by Quadra Island interdisciplinary artist John Schevers, will be featured in the Main Gallery space with a new installation.

The exhibition, sponsored by Nick and Liz Stoneberger, is a symbolic visual and experiential narrative about the cycle of life and the interconnectedness of all things.

Schevers pushes the boundaries of his materials, always experimenting to add more texture and depth to his work.

Dreaming the Earth, is a collaborative exhibition by Cortes Island mixed-media artist, Lisa Gibbons and Comox sculpture artist Donna Naven.

Featured in the Discovery Gallery, their work reflects the inspiration they find in the living earth. Gibbons’ paintings are layered in process and material, further expressing the subtle balance found in nature.  Naven’s stone sculptures call to Neolithic stone goddess figures, while overlaying a contemporary narrative.

Everyone is welcome to attend the Thursday, Sept. 18 reception to meet Schevers, Gibbons and Naven. The exhibitions will remain at the Gallery until Friday, Oct. 31.

Fall hours at the Gallery are Tuesday to Saturday from 12-5 p.m. For more information, please call 250-287-2261 or email contact@crartgallery.ca or visit our website www.crartgallery.ca.
