Gallery Odin 5th Summer Art Exhibition/Sale and Opening Receptions

Thu, 31/05/2007 - 11:00 pm

In conjunction with the opening of Silver Star Mountain Resort for the summer, Gallery Odin is holding its Opening Receptions for its 2007 Summer Exhibition and Sale on June 21st and 23rd.

Once again we are showcasing a very talented and skilled group of British Columbian artists:

Bonnie Anderson, Colleen Couves, Julie Elliot, Edward Epp, Lynne Grillmair, Ginny Hall, Arne Hetherington, Corky Hewson, Bob Kingsmill, Sara Lige, Elizabeth Moore, Barry Rafuse, Dana Roman, Al Scott, Curtis Smith, Heidi Thompson, Julia Trops, Catherine Wetmore, Todd R. White, Deborah Wilson, Charlene Woodbury, and guest artist Peter Lawson.

In the gallery you will find a variety of styles, mediums, themes, shapes and forms. There are striking multi-layered brilliant acrylics and oils; landscapes that capture the beauty and mystery of nature; bold mixed media abstracts; many coloured Brazilian Soapstone carvings; one of a kind ceramic pieces; native carvings and intricate scrimshaw on fossilized mammoth tusks. All visitors will find something captivating in these interesting works.

Our new artist, Vernon born Peter Lawson is making his home on Vancouver Island now. Peter takes his inspiration from the forest and waterscape that surrounds him. He paints in a representational style that often includes intimate glimpses of native flora and fauna. His technique of layering colours and altering traditional perspectives gives his paintings an unusual, almost “primitive” quality.

Artists will be in attendance and refreshments will be served.

We would like to extend a personal invitation to you and your art-loving friends for our 5th Annual Summer Show and Sale openings on: Thursday, June 21st from 6:00 - 10:00 pm and/or Saturday, June 23rd from 2:00 - 6:00 pm. We hope you will be able to attend and celebrate with us.

Gallery Odin is located on the Knoll of beautiful Silver Star Mountain, BC, just a short stroll away from the village, on 215 Odin Road. After the June 23rd Opening, the Gallery will be open every Thursday and Saturday from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm for the remainder of the summer season. Please call 250-503-0822 to visit Gallery Odin at other times.
