As summer’s light shifts, we see the world around us through a softer lens; tying beautifully into the slightly out of focus paintings by our newest painter, Jonathan Gleed.
New work by gallery favourites, and introducing new temptations from jeweller Raven & Stone!

Alone Together by Jonathan Gleed
acrylic on canvas, 24 x 36
Included in this Newsletter:
A Million Thoughts
Acrylic on canvas 48 x 48
Mother Nature provides Jonathan with an unending supply of traditional subjects like the ocean, skies and mountains; but it’s when natural and engineered worlds collide that he sees the most potential for a painting. A perfectly warm sky hitting the cold concrete of a building or a person shielding themselves from the elements through a rain-covered windshield during rush hour – these moments are his inspiration.
Acrylic on canvas 24 x 36
Reclaimed Marble 33 x 5 x 6.5
I sculpt in seasons. In the spring and fall I concentrate on stone, in winter I carve ice and snow, and in summer I travel creating sand monuments… I feel that there’s still so much to learn, to experience and experiment with my art. I will carve until I die.

Oxidized Silver – varying sizes (contact gallery)
Raven & Stone was founded in Vancouver, B.C. in 2012 by Vanja Gavric, owner and designer. Hand carved and truly original, this oxidized sterling silver ring is an instant favourite. It is a stand out piece that is very comfortable to wear and light weight.
One Man Walking
Oil on Linen 30 x 40
The ideas for One Man Walking developed from black linear elements of plant fossils found in the Okanagan and thoughts of time, nature, and man’s place engendered by them.

Textured Circles Earrings
Following in her newest direction, Veronica introduces this circular form in her designs.
Incalmo Murrine Vase
Glass 10.5 x 6 x 4
Bringing a new vitality and approach to her medium, Lisa draws inspiration for her Murrini series from Hundertwasser’s buildings in Vienna and New Zealand.
Falling Leaves Cuff Bracelet
The properties of silver enable it to be cut and shaped in a great variety of ways. With this medium design is limited only by one’s imagination, stimulated by the flora, fauna and scenery surrounding us in our beautiful Pacific coast.

BEHIND THE SCENES WITH…
Vanja utilizes the lost wax method and metal forming techniques to craft each Raven & Stone collection. She invites inspiration from urban architecture, organic textures and forms, and is heavily influenced by minimalist and industrial design. Each Raven & Stone piece is diligently constructed by hand-using only the highest quality materials.
Vanja’s deep-seated passion for art and design has consistently been a driving force in her life. Her love of creating and working with her hands has led to exposure of many different artistic mediums. The collision of these creative influences is heavily present in her design process and execution. In order to perfect her craft, Vanja has invested time apprenticing under Master Goldsmith Andrea Roberts.
