Sean Yelland: New Works
6/2/2012 - 6/8/2012
Yelland doesn't set out to make specific statements with his paintings. Rather, he prefers people to react intuitively and emotionally as opposed to intellectually. His intention is to draw the viewer in with something that may seem familiar at first, but, upon closer inspection, the imagery subverts any initial reaction. The paintings may be perceived as sombre, but are balanced with a subtle sense of humour, either within the image itself or, perhaps, in the title. Use of light plays a major role in determining the emotional tone and is the content when none seems readily apparent.
Scott Pattinson: New Works
4/28/2012 - 5/4/2012
In examining physical landscapes, both national and international, his work presents a vital examination of external environments that create internal reactions. Carrying on the tradition of abstract expressionism, Pattinson’s work defies a static understanding, seeking to exist in the flux of undulating realities and malleable logistics.
Pete Wyse: New Works
6/9/2012 - 6/15/2012
“I live within a landscape of dogs and frogs, flora and fauna, and even a rubber duck or two. My life is both peaceful and playful and this is what I paint.” Peter Wyse’s eclectic art interests range from Matisse and Rothko to the murals of mesoamerica. These influences are evident within his spatial relationships and with his lively use of colour and line.
New Work by David Antonides
4/6/2013 - 4/26/2013
Born in Whitehorse, Yukon in 1958, David Antonides has studied in Vancouver, Europe and New York. His work is focused on watercolour - but in an approach that creates a weight and drama not normally associated with this typically transparent and fragile medium. Although he paints some studies in oil, the final works are completed in water media.
Ernestine Tahedl: New Works
5/5/2012 - 5/11/2012
Ernestine Tahedl was born and educated in Austria and received a Master's Degree in graphic art from the Vienna Academy of Applied Arts. Following graduation in 1961, she collaborated with her father, Professor Heinrich Tahedl, in the design and execution of stained glass commissions until she immigrated to Canada in 1963. Her work is represented in public, corporate and private collections and galleries in Canada, United States, France, Switzerland, Austria, and Japan.
Eve Leader: New Works
5/26/2012 - 6/1/2012
"I use drafting film because I feel that it creates the ephemeral quality that I want in my work. The figures are in abstract settings as I do not want to place them in any one human context. I use oil paint as I love the materiality of the medium. In these works, I am not interested in painting the body in a realistic manner, but rather in finding a way to represent it so that it resonates more deeply with the viewer."
Leonard Cohen Artworks
11/8/2012 - 11/27/2012
An exhibition of limited edition prints by Leonard Cohen, including 13 new works. Opening reception Thursday Nov. 8, 6-9pm.
Miriam Aroeste: Flowing in the waves of Love
2/4/2012 - 2/10/2012
Miriam’s work conveys her inner journey through life. Her abstract themes explore a universal understanding that transcends gender, race or subject matter; it is deliberately inclusive and open. Her paintings are ultimately explorations of line, color and gesture
Keith Hiscock: New Works
3/17/2012 - 3/23/2012
The Pacific Northwest has played an important role in the inspiration of Keith’s work, as it is indeed a place unlike any other in the world. From earlier explorations into abstract art to his present day representational realism, this self-taught artist’s work displays a unique style.
Janice Robertson: New Works
4/14/2012 - 4/20/2012
Janice’s work is largely a reflection of her abiding love for the beauty of the west coast forests and beaches that she has known all her life. Her attachment to her home and garden are represented in her still- life paintings. She works in acrylic, watercolor and oil.
Jane Everett: New Work
4/21/2012 - 4/27/2012
Jane prefers painting oil on canvas, and drawing on Belgian linen with charcoal, graphite, and conte. Her waterscape paintings verge on the abstract, using complex layerings of colour to render the undulating surface of water in an intricate study of light and form. Her large drawings on stretched linen demonstrate accomplished control of gestural line.
5/12/2012 - 5/25/2012
Please join us Saturday May 12th from 1-4pm for the opening reception of Painters Eleven. Major canvases by all members of P11 will be available for purchase.
Ray Mead: Works from the Estate
11/26/2011 - 12/9/2011
Ray Mead was one of the pioneers of contemporary painting in Canada. After World War II he immigrated to Canada from England and became a member of Painters 11 in the 1950s. His distinctive painting practice continued through the next five decades. Since Mead’s death in the fall of 1998 a posthumous solo exhibition of work from the 1990s was held at the Howard Scott Gallery in New York City. This is Mead’s first solo show in Vancouver. One of Canada’s foremost abstract painters, Mead’s canvases are often characterized by rich fields of colour that are activated by the strategic placements of his personal iconographic marks. His paintings possess a contemplative elegance that upon meditation reveal a rich aesthetic experience.
Suzanne Northcott: New Works
3/24/2012 - 3/30/2012
Suzanne is interested in the shifting place where one thing becomes another, studying dreams and meditation and themes of transformation, decay, metamorphosis and migration. This interest in the space between also manifests in her continuing history of collaborative work with poets, scientists and artists in other genres.

10/20/2012 - 11/1/2012
