Press page - 11th Annual Easter Art Show 2017
This event is proudly sponsored
by the Salt Spring Arts Council.
This year's exhibit is a show of figurative art titled ‘Body Of Work’. Twenty artists will come together, presenting work with a focus on the human figure. There will be both established as well as little known and emerging artists. They work in a variety of media and techniques in painting, sculpture and photography.
The human body has been portrayed by artists since before the vocation was established - from the first cave paintings, bone amulets and clay effigies - and has provided artists with a rich subject that still fascinates both artists and collectors today.
There is tremendous raw energy, passion and sensitivity evident in the portrayal of this subject from each of the artists, and the viewer should walk away with a heightened sense of what it means for an artist to celebrate the human figure.
