Estuary Evening

Oil on canvas 24 x 30

The Englishman River Estuary offers smooth walking trails that allow the recreational walker a variety of views of the Estuary. No matter the time of day, or how high the tide, it is a magical place. My favourite time to walk there is on a cloudy evening as the sun is going down. – Ron Parker

BRUCE EDMUNDSON

 

Maple burl sculpture, Wedding Band by Bruce Edmundson at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada.

Wedding Band

Salt Spring Island Big Leaf Maple Burl, BC Granite Base 22 x 17 x 6

$975

Wedding Band is an example of trying to illustrate a very human concept – marriage – that uses an elemental natural shape – the circle – with a rare natural product, the burl. The burl is particularly suited as the whorls of the bird’s eye grain reflect the circular design. The live-edge, which challenges the smooth round man made ring, the gap where the circle is incomplete, and the imperfections inherent in live-edge sculpture, reflect the tension and challenges inherent in the very human need to couple and join in marriage. – Bruce Edmundson

 

Maple burl sculpture, Derelict by Bruce Edmundson at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada.

 

Derelict

Salt Spring Island Big Leaf Maple Burl, BC Granite Base 26 x 12 x 12

$1175

Every derelict boat is a unique story of the hopes and dreams that fuelled its journey.  “Derelict”, the sculpture, is about the beauty of these lost or abandoned boats. A burl, my source material, like a derelict boat, has its own unique natural beauty and history. The live-edge, natural faults, bird’s eye and swirling grains of the burl expose a rich history that pays homage to the story behind the sad beauty of a boat. In this case, it was inspired by the abandoned boats I see walking my dog on various local beaches. I am trying, as a sculptor, to use the rare source material, burls, to reflect iconic images from our everyday lives. I hope the outcome honours both the burl and the inspiration, by bringing them together and creating something both similar and unique.   – Bruce Edmundson

Thunder in the Distance by Marianne Meyer at The Avenue Gallery, a contemporary fine art gallery in Victoria, BC, Canada.

Thunder in the Distance

Acrylic, charcoal and graphite on canvas 36 x 36

$1550

My work is always changing which gives me the pleasure to experiment and to move forward. I work and rework my paintings until I reach the point when I feel that they express just the right amount of layering, structure and depth. The final colour constellations invite the viewer to find his or hers own personal experience of my pieces. I believe that that’s what art should do. – Marianne Meyer

BRENT LYNCH

UNDER THE BIG SKY

OCTOBER 11 – 21

Artist’s Reception:

Saturday, October 13th, 1:00 – 3:00pm

Artist in attendance

 

Brent was moved by the music and literature that is important to him in creating this exhibition. He was hearing this as he painted these skies, from William Blake to Jack Kerouac, Bach to Dylan their influence finds a way into his paintings. It was a natural extension to give titles to this collection based on his favourite songs and poetry.
