‘Doorways’ exhibit launches new season at visual arts centre

Obscure by local artist Keishia Treber is one of the paintings featured in the exhibit ‘Doorways’ that opens at the Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre this Friday, Apr. 8, at 6 p.m.

“It’s a challenge to artists to interpret the theme of doorways in any media,” said curator Jacquie Pendergast. “They can be literal or metaphorical.”

The works include photographs, paintings, sculptures and more.

“It’s going to be a facinating exhibit because of the wide interpretation of the theme,” said Pendergast. The show is the first of the season at the arts centre.

Here is the complete list of the rest of the shows at the Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre this year:

On May 13, The Human Face of Revelstoke, a juried show, opens alongside Commotion by Nakusp artist Gillian Redwood and Peonies to Privies by the Golden Girls Watercolour Group.

June 10 marks the opening of Wednesday Inspirations by the Wednesday Meditation Group. Also appearing will be Through My Eyes by the Revelstoke Self Advocates and IN/side/OUT by Jewelles Smith.

Artist Keishia Treber will present her show Muse from July 8 to Aug. 5. Also appearing then will be Figuratively Speaking by Paula Cravens and Bowls of Life by Darlene Swan.

The traditional Midsummer Affordable Art Fair takes place from Aug. 12 to Sept. 2. All works featured will be price at less than $300, making this a great opportunity to acquire some great art work.

In September, Full Metal Basket by Nakusp welder-turner-artist Kate Tupper takes place in the main room, while London on Canvas by photographer and Jason Keerak and Emerging from the Fire by potter’s Nancy Geismas, Cat Mather and David Walker take up residence in the side galleries. The show begins Sept. 9.

On Oct. 7, Layers of Love by the Mt. Revelstoke Quilters debuts alongside an exhibit celebrating Blanket Creek Provincial Park and the Environmental Art Photographic Project.

After a year on hiatus, Art in the Park returns on Nov. 12 for a show celebrating the 125th anniversary of Glacier and Yoho National Parks. Also that month is the Best of Banff Photographic Exhibition.

Finally, the year ends, as usual, with Gifts from the Gallery, from Dec. 9–18. The annual show provides a great opportunity for some creative Christmas shopping.

All shows open at 6 p.m. on their respective opening nights.
