Da Vinci’s Selfie
Come celebrate the holiday long weekend by joining us for the beginning of our next show entitled ‘Selfies’. This is a HIAC Group Show and will be exhibiting from July 1st to July 13th and will include self-portraits from many of our local Hornby artists. The opening reception for this show will take place on July 4th from 7-9pm with live music from the talented Ted Tanner throughout the evening.
Through their creativity, artists have been depicting themselves in their own work for millennia, and have done so by representing everything from their physical, emotional, symbolic, realistic, and spiritual selves. HIAC’s group show celebrates this long standing tradition and fascination of self-expression through creative mediums.
We are all hard wired for facial recognition and self-exploration so come out and enjoy the intrigued of seeing others’ depictions of their selves and to see whether or not you can find Your self in any of others’ artistic play.
Remember to come out and join us tomorrow night from 7-9pm to celebrate the opening of Alpen Kelley’s new show entitled “The Dancing Blanket Series”. Hope to see you then!
HIAC’s current show is a beautiful collection from the Island Gallery artists. In contrast to their last show Abstract, this one is called Realism and includes paintings and sculptures from 14 of our amazing local artists. Thanks to everyone who came out to our delightful opening reception for the Realism show last night. The show will stay up until June 15, Wednesday to Sunday, 11am to 3pm, so come check it out!
After visiting the current Island Gallery show make sure to mark your calendar for Alpen Kelley’s exhibition, which will run from June 17th to 29th, same hours as above. The opening is Friday June 20th from 7-9pm, which we hope you can attend; her shows are always a don’t-miss!
HIAC will soon be announcing the programming for our 2014 Outdoor Performance Series. These events take place on an outdoor stage nestled in the trees directly adjoining the Gallery. Last year was the launch of the Series and it was a huge success and we are thrilled to be showcasing Hornby’s finest musicians, authors, dancers once again. Watch for posters and our ad in the summer First Edition.
Finally, we are currently in the midst of planning our “Art in the Garden Tour” which will take place SUNDAY, AUGUST 10TH. This event will be held at a number of locations featuring established & emerging artists in a variety of disciplines. If you have a body of work & would like to participate, or would like more information, please contact us by June 15, 2014, at 250.335.2070 or firstname.lastname@example.org. This will be a ticketed event with proceeds in support of the new Hornby Community Art Centre.
Hope you all enjoy the rest of this glorious June and we at HIAC hope to see you soon!
