Ucluelet Tide (Field Study)
Oil on panel 12 x 12
The energy, intensity and poetry of Brent’s paintings are a result of his passion for direct study from life. Whether in the studio or painting in the field, it is the immediate raw connection with his subject that is the cornerstone of his work.
Arbutus Beach, Tumbo Island (Field Study)
Oil on panel 12 x 12
Birth of Stars
Porcelain 17 x 4
Derek’s soft, new translucent porcelain bowls have a multi-glaze layered transparent water blue glazing.
Teardrop Bottle (Black)
Porcelain 11 x 6
The appearance is enhanced with a classical crazed surface similar to ancient celadons. The shading of the various glaze layers really makes the textured surface pop. All the interior texture is done at the throwing stage by a process called “chattering” which is done at high speed using edged ribs to create the undulating and repeating patterns on the wet and sticky clay surface. – Derek Kasper
Porcelain 15.5 x 5
Acrylic on canvas 40 x 40
Becky considers it a blessing to be part of the connection which artwork provides between artist and viewer, and has discovered that hikes and walks in the natural, majestic beauty of the Alberta Foothills, Canadian Rockies and the West Coast are favourite times to ‘observe, record and reflect’ for later artistic pursuits in the studio.
Acrylic on canvas 18 x 36
Becky captures the breathtaking beauty of the world in her distinct and vibrant style. She sees each painting as an opportunity to form a joyful and grateful response in colour and motion to what she has had the privilege to experience.

Let’s give hungry BC kids once less thing to worry about…
With Halloween wearing a different mask this year, in lieu of buying candy for trick-or-treaters, The Avenue Gallery will proudly make its second annual donation to Backpack Buddies.
Backpack Buddies is an established Vancouver-based charity fighting child hunger, that has now expanded to eight Greater Victoria schools. This worthwhile organization provides backpacks filled with food for the weekend to 234 local children in need, filling the ‘weekend hunger gap’. Hunger doesn’t take the weekend off and children shouldn’t have to suffer.
Last year we were able to help fill over a dozen backpacks for a weekend. (At just $15, a backpack of food contains nine meals and extra snacks so that a child has enough to eat over the weekend, plus a couple extra meals for the week ahead.)
For more information about Backpack Buddies, contact Michelle Vanderzon at Michelle@BackpackBuddies.ca.
