Old School House Art Gallery

This week our local art gallery “Old School House Art Gallery” opens for the season. We have a very exciting season plan for our neighbors and visitors on Cortes Island B.C. We start the season off with a solo art installation by Loni Rene Taylor this Friday June 15 and is open for 2 weeks including being featured during the art studio and garden tour on the 16th.

With 2 members show one representing our digital artist called “All Things Digital” which I have a couple pieces in and for the first time sharing the video from “Senses That Sin” show casing 3 art dolls, my live doll that comes alive Namchi Bazaar, and accordin player Del Riviera from Powell River, I am excited to share the walls with many other talented artist for this show.

We also have the membership show which I am the curator for and still accepting submissions for until July 14. It’s been a great experience so far meeting and seeing the submissions that my fellow artist have been preparing for this show, I can’t wait to hang this show on the walls and share it with you. This years theme is “Space” and I also have my biggest painting to date in the show.

Look out for more info on the rest of the season coming up at Old School House Art Gallery and don’t forget ever Friday is Gallery Nite from 6-9pm with either an opening, performance or artist talks.
