We begin our 2016 fall season with a group exhibition featuring the artists Linnea Hannigan, Alison Masters and Gordon Pengilly.
Linnea Hannigan & Alison Masters
Linnea Hannigan investigates the divide between representation and abstraction using the lush formal properties of encaustic paint. The reaction of wax with paint offers an organic dimensional depiction of the landscape subject.

Alison Masters uses the tranquil beauty and color of the Kootenay valley as inspiration for her work. Often painting in multiple layers, Master allows the ghost image of a previous layer to become a part of the process. While drawing with an acrylic marker, the line works in concert with the colour paint binding the piece together.
By Gordon Pengilly
Gordon Pengilly's first series of sculptures are figurative, based upon dance and yoga poses. The marvellous expression of the human body in its most curved and flexible states and the language of form and space is the classic subject matter for figurative sculpture. Pengilly has begun a second series of work called the abstract deer, inspired by ancient cave drawings where minimalist features are created by blunt tools.
