We are delighted to introduce Victoria wood sculptor, Bruce Edmundson. With a formal education in creative writing, Bruce began wood carving in the early 1990’s, working in the forest industry, and later entering a career in public service. Now retired, Bruce’s passion for wood carving has flourished.
Summertime hasn’t slowed down our artists! Impressive new paintings and ceramics to share with you…and three of our painters are busy at their easels in preparation for their solo exhibitions this fall.
Be sure to follow us to see what’s brand new into the gallery before anyone else!

“I have learned that to experiment and take risks is to court success. I want to express the natural splendour of the wood while enhancing it with the human touch. I want it to be unique, the hand of one person enabling nature’s inherent strengths and beauty. I try to do that by testing both the limits of my skills and the assets of the nature I am working on.”

Yared’s paintings have a palpable energy that is optimistic and thoughtful, much like Yared himself. Fusing undisguised brushstrokes with a bright, opulent palette, Yared’s paintings are provocative and convey a narrative much deeper than the mere appearance of the subject.
