CURRENT EXHIBITION

BETWEEN HEAVEN and EARTH

Saturday, May 19 to Sunday, June 24, 2018

Three artists – Dennis Gordon Evans, Susan Crack and Richard Crack – have been dedicated to working creatively for over fifty years.

They met as students at the Alberta College of Art (ACAD) in the mid-1960’s, and went their separate ways, professionally, after graduation. Now, each is retired from their external means of employment, and they are directing their energies, full-time, to their creative passions. Serendipitously, they discovered a common theme emerging in their work.

Specifically, the maturation of each of these three artists has brought them to a stage in their life wherein they instinctively distill the essence of the natural world into very sophisticated visual imagery. Unconsciously or deliberately, individually and collectively, they connect with and interpret the spirituality inherent in the Canadian landscape. Discovering this common ground is the genesis of their proposed exhibition, “Between Heaven and Earth.”

The works in this exhibition will take viewers on a visual experience of the Canadian sense of place—this is where we live, both physically and spiritually. The power of the Canadian landscape has been expressed in three different ways. Two of the artists work with acrylics on canvas; one works in tapestry. Collectively, these works will resonate with viewers at a regional and national level.

At the opening night of the exhibition, the artists propose to host an event which pairs their works with the carefully chosen musical selections by well known jazz musician and musicologist, Don Wade of Sax Among Friends, Naramata, BC. As well, select poetry readings by Richard Crack and Patricia Evans will become companions to the visual presentations.

The artists are also available to discuss, in a separate lecture for this purpose, the relevance of landscape as subject matter in their art. Such a discussion will appeal to art students, amateur and professional artists in all disciplines as well as the general public.
