Happy, sunny days are here in Quesnel, and we are celebrating this at the gallery with a new show. 'Resonate' features the works of Judith DesBrisay and Cheri Maisonneuve and is running from now until May 28th! Come in and see it or check out the show on social media, we have posted images of it on Facebook. 'Resonate' celebrates the works of two of Quesnel's favourite, long-time practicing artists and their shared medium, resin. A couple of the works are done as a collaboration between these two artists, but the majority are either the abstract working of DesBrisay, or portrayals of the ocean by Maisonneuve. The works are breath-taking, and very shiny, do not miss this show or the opportunity to purchase one of these works through the gift shop or through emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is the last month to submit a proposal for our 2022 exhibition year! If you are interested in showing at the Quesnel Art Gallery next year, make sure that you get your submission in by May 31st. We have an online application found here. We will be reviewing submissions in June and informing people of their status by June 30th. We are already excited about some of the submissions we already have and we can't wait to put together the full line up!
We also have a Community Show opening up July 3rd and running until the 29th. It is a new venture for us, and we are calling it the 'A Summer Garden'! Bring us your works related to the theme of what you think of, or see, in your garden during the summertime. We will start taking in works at the end of June, so start working on those masterpieces! If you have any questions about the 'Summer Garden' show, please contact us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or our website. We're looking forward to filling the gallery with sunshine, flowers, and all good things green.
We are also thinking about ways to have workshops this summer! We missed hosting them last year, but we made up for it with the tile kits for the community mural (which you wholly embraced, thank you so much for that). We are thinking about potentially doing more kits for another project, and a couple of guest lectures. It is going to be an exciting summer!
The members' meeting is being held on Zoom on May 31st, at 2pm, if you are interested in attending and learning more about what's going on at the gallery, send us an email at email@example.com and we will send you a link. Our AGM is coming up as well on June 21st, 2pm, email us (again) to let us know that you want to attend and mark the date on your calendars!
Our next show opens up on June 3rd, and it is "Ingrained Stories - What the Wood Said to Me" with Darin Corbiere. That is everything for now, keep checking our social media and our website for more updates!
