Walk, Talk, Walk

Oil on canvas 36 x 48

$4200

Near the end of a winding, lakeshore road in the Okanagan, a bluff of metamorphic rock protrudes from the silt cliffs. An array of angular and rectangular rocks in brown, pink and purple hues stud its buff surface. I have always been fascinated by its incongruence and the many colours and patterns within it… (continue reading Joan’s Artistic Statement on our website)

BRUCE EDMUNDSON

 

Homeward Bound by Bruce Edmundson at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada.

Homeward Bound

Saltspring Island Big Leaf Maple Burl; Quartz Base 24 x 14 x 6

$1150

“Homeward Bound” is an homage to Tony Gooch for his (and his wife Coryn’s) spirit of adventure. Particularly inspiring was Tony’s 2002/03 solo, non-stop circumnavigation of the planet. He did so at the middle-age of 64, the first person to do so from a North American west coast port, in this case Victoria. 

Their boat, now sold, the 44 foot cutter Taonui, had been the means of worldwide adventures, throughout their marriage. In this case Coryn monitored his progress and communicated with him when and where possible, posting his progress on a website. Once asked what sustained him throughout, he said it was the beer. 178 days and 7457 miles later Tony came home. – Bruce Edmundson

EUNMI CONACHER

Baja by Eunmi Conacher at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary art gallery in Victoria BC, Canada

Baja

Acrylic on panel 24 x 24

$1600

As a contemporary impressionist and expressionist artist, my desire is to create paintings which bring energy to the canvas… more an expression of the mood in the scene rather than a realistic picture. I use depth of colour and form to balance realism and abstract. My hope is that viewers connect emotionally with my paintings in their own way.

Viking Knit Necklace

Textured and Crocheted Sterling Silver Pendant, Garnets, Pearls

$275

I have a life-long knowledge of knitting and crochet which gives an endless supply of inspiration for stitches, pattern and colour. This medium holds seemingly unlimited possibilities and, for over 10 years, I have explored more textural and sculptural directions, as the crocheted wire allows for strength and form while still maintaining a delicate beauty. – Veronica Stewart
