The Revelstoke Art Gallery is delighted to announce the launch of its new 2016 exhibition program. Please join us for the opening of two amazing exhibitions on Friday, March 18, from 6–9 p.m.


The main gallery will showcase a wide selection of work by members of the Revelstoke Visual Arts Society. The theme Twisted is explored by the artists in a variety of creative ways and through various mediums, from paintings to pottery to sculpture.


The Side Gallery presents artist, Leora Gesser with her exhibition, Boundaries. Working mainly with mixed media, Gesser uses a process that includes photography, collage, and painting, to create landscapes that challenge the viewer’s beliefs in the harmony and serenity found in the natural world around them.

“Boundaries is as much about the changing environment as it is about my perception of the landscape,” stated Gesser. “By recording the living and breathing areas that surround me, I want to pay homage to the landscape that has become so much part of my fabric. I am taking this opportunity to discover the harmonies and chaos, the beauty and confusion, and the realities and abstractions found in our natural world.”

Gesser will be giving an artist talk at the gallery on Friday, Apr. 29, at 2 p.m. All are welcome.
