Salmon Arm Art Gallery is pleased to present In Dialogue with Vivian Lindoe, an exhibition featuring ten regional artists responding to Lindoe serigraphs recently donated to the Community Art Collection. The exhibition opens on Saturday, January 22 at 11am. While Covid protocols prevent an opening reception, the public are invited to join the staff of the Art Gallery and the exhibiting artists for a meet and greet between 11am and 1pm. Gallery hours are Tuesday to Saturday 11am to 4pm. This exhibition is generously sponsored by two long-time friends of the Gallery: Lois Higgins and The Stacer Team. The exhibition continues until Saturday, February 26, 2022.
Vivian Lindoe moved to Salmon Arm from Calgary in 1970, and lived in a house she built herself at the base of Mt. Ida until the mid-90’s. She created serigraphs in a distinct muted palette that mimicked the land forms around her, as well as the land memories of the prairie environment. Artists of a variety of mediums were invited to respond to her works in this exhibition; featuring Barb Belway, Myrna Button, Jen Dyck, Linda Franklin, Lisa Figueroa, Robin Hodgson, Susan Miller, Amy Modahl, Mary Thomas and Sara Wiens. The artists explored Lindoe’s colour, form or subject matter and allowed that inspiration to inform their own work.
The Artist Talk will take place in the Gallery on Thursday, February 17 at 2pm. Admission to the Gallery is by donation.
