I will be exhibiting my work at Lake Country ArtWalk, September 7 & 8 in the small gym in the Community Complex. This year Lake Country ArtWalk is celebrating 20 years in the community. The theme for the event is "It's All About Time." The event is a juried show that features artists and artisans from throughout the Okanagan Valley in 5 different venues. Besides eye-popping art there will be good eats, music, and a children's area.
"Watching and Waiting," shown to the right, is featured at the theme gallery of the Lake Country Art Gallery and will be on display for the month of September.
Artist Statement: I remember driving by Wood Lake and seeing an ice fisherman huddled over his ice-fishing hole patiently waiting for a tug on the line. Not far behind him was a heron -- also waiting -- for something that the fisherman might throw the heron's way. It has been a compelling image for me of connectedness between humans and the natural world. Afterall, all creatures (humans included) have a need to find food and to eat. Humans, with a knowledge of the past and large capacity brains, are at the hub of the food chain and have a great responsibility to protect and maintain a balance. We are not independent from the web of life.
