Forms of Nature is a two-person exhibition featuring the work of North Shore artists Pavel Barta and Mary-Jean Butler. Inspired by the local landscape, these artists use the mediums of sculpture and oil paint, respectively, to interpret natural forms and environments.
Pavel Barta was born in the Czech Republic and now lives and works in North Vancouver. He creates stone, bronze and fiberglass sculptures that can be found in galleries and as public art installations across Canada.
West Vancouver artist Mary-Jean Butler’s oil paintings reflect the rugged landscape of British Columbia's mountains and coastline. An education in both fine art and graphic design plays a strong role in the stylization of her work. Her artist studio is situated amongst the trees, cliffs and water shown in the landscapes she paints.
The Seymour Art Gallery is a non-profit, public gallery located in the heart of Deep Cove, North Vancouver. Admission is free of charge.
