September 25, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until October 9, 2021
Salmon Arm Art Gallery is pleased to present “Pull: Printmaking in the Time of Covid” opening Saturday, August 28, 2021 with music and refreshments from 11am to 1pm, and open hours until 4pm. The nine artists featured in Pull are members of the Kamloops Printmaking Society, a group of contemporary artists using print as a form of installation art-making. With members located around the Thompson Okanagan region, their influences include the changing landscape, food security, urbanization and motherhood.
Featuring Ila Crawford, Amanda Forrest-Ewanyshyn, Linda Franklin, Linda Jules, Darlene Kalynka, Maureen Light, Susan Miller, Kelly Perry and Elizabeth Sigalet, the exhibition addresses the unique circumstances each of the artists found themselves in while in isolation during the pandemic. Without the group dynamic to support and evolve ideas, they each identified a passion that helped them cope mentally and emotionally with the global situation. This multi-media exhibition is far from traditional printmaking methods, and showcases what magic can happen in the repeated form.
The Art Gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday from 11am to 4pm, and this exhibition runs until October 9, 2021. Admission is by donation. Public health orders will be followed in the gallery at all times.
