Madrona Gallery - Guthrie Gloag


Guthrie Gloag


June 2 - 16, 2018

Opening Reception: Saturday, June 2, 1-4pm
Artist will be in attendance.

In Guthrie Gloag's second solo exhibition with Madrona Gallery, he has created an exceptional collection of ten new wildlife and figurative sculptures. Trained as a biologist, Gloag sculpts animals that he has observed directly in the wild, giving them a life-like and visceral presence. He works with unaltered pieces of driftwood, which he carefully sorts and arranges in a complex three-dimensional puzzle with no underlying armature or support. Often depicting animals that have been threatened by human activity, these pieces reflect Gloag's understanding and respect for our environment.

Gloag was raised in B.C. and currently lives on Bowen Island, where he recently completed a life-size driftwood mastodon in the forest. He started creating this series of sculptures in 2011 and continues to focus on evolving the sense of character in each piece. His works can be found in collections around the globe.

Please join us for the opening reception June 2 from 1-4 at 606 View St. The artist will be in attendance. 'Instinct' will run until June 16. For more information on the exhibit or Madrona Gallery, please call 250-380-4660, email, or visit our website at
