The theme PICKS AND PIXELS refers to the connection between the rough material, the rock, and the actual colour used in the art works.
Jeanne Krabbendam, instructor at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver and curator of this show, teaches mixed media painting techniques to students of a wide range of different backgrounds. Over the years she has encountered great emerging artists who are making art pieces in an innovative and experimental style. This exhibit showcases some of these talents and displays the work they are capable of making. The participants have their own unique ways of approaching the exhibition theme. Some more literal, others more symbolic and abstract, but all have worked with building surface and exploring alternative ways of creating art.
This is a great opportunity to share with the public their love for art making, their joy of working in mixed media, their challenges and victories in creating art work based on a theme.
All pieces in this art exhibit are either collected or created with the theme of this exhibit, PICKS AND PIXELS, in mind.
A worksheet contest for all ages accompanies the exhibit. It challenges the audience to explore the theme, find connections between rocks and colour and study the art a bit more closely.
A warm thanks goes to the staff at the Britannia Mine Museum and to the artists in this exciting exhibit: Sandra Bowen, Monica Gewurz, Zohar Fiszbaum, Maryam Hatami, Jennifer Hobson, Karen Holland, Margriet Mastenbroek, Henry Sawatzky, Peter Sickert.
