Off to Sea will be the featured musical entertainment at a reception tomorrow for two new exhibitions at the Campbell River Art Gallery.

Off To Sea brings alternative rock sound to Art Gallery reception

Unveiling two new exhibitions and a chance to view art created by Timberline Secondary students

The Campbell River Art Gallery is excited to announce that local band Off To Sea will be performing at a public reception for two new exhibitions Thursday, Feb. 12.

The event is set to take place from 7 to 9 p.m. for the unveiling of two new exhibitions at the Gallery and a chance to view art created by Timberline Secondary students.

Off to Sea, which has some Timberline Secondary students as members, will bring their alternative rock sound to the opening! Off To Sea features John Hutchins, Jacob Hutchins, Ayden Garlinski-Gonsky and Jesse Dean.

Their influences range from Young the Giant and Kings of Leon to The Who!

The Main Gallery will feature a new exhibition from Rachel Yoder, an abstract painter living near Nelson, B.C. Yoder’s exhibition, Memento Mori: Remember you must die, features conceptual colour field paintings that play with the biological tension created within the eye when two colours at specific tones are presented side by side.

An interactive component of the exhibition urges the audience to answer a series of questions related to mortality that will in turn create a unique colour field to represent that person.

The Discovery Gallery will feature the installation Stuck by Toronto artist Nathalie Quagliotto.

Quagliotto works in found object sculpture and the exhibition reconfigures an everyday pre-fabricated object to offer a whimsical trick of the eye.

Memento Mori: Remember you must die and Stuck will be at the Campbell River Art Gallery until March 27.

Featured Timberline Secondary artists with work on display in the Satellite Cases are: Jesse Green, Brooklyn Beitel, Justine Lowgood, Ashlyn Ouellette, Laura Corbett, Sierra Alexander, Hayley Probyn, Birklee Landelis, Hannah Read, Jacob Stobbe, Angel Lapise, Jocelyn Joseph, Jordyn Goodwin, Jessica Hynes and Leigha Fane.

The Timberline exhibition will remain until Feb. 19.

All ages are welcome at the Campbell River Art Gallery Thursday, Feb. 12 at 7 p.m. for snacks, a first look at two new exhibitions, a chance to see the creations of Timberline Secondary art students and music from Off To Sea.

The Campbell River Art Gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday from 12 p.m. – 5 p.m. For more information, call 250-287-2261 or email curator@crartgallery.ca.
