The creativity of her 20 colleagues inspires her, and she enjoys the freedom of being part of a non-profit organization. Focusing on faces for Charisma, a solo exhibition, is a first for Michiel. “I’ve always been intrigued by what transforms a woman,” she says. “How education, culture, and family all play a part.”

    In her series called Orbital, Jo-Anne Silverman creates an aura of wonderment. Each of the 24 drawings is an invitation to enter an imaginative world. With playful precision, she interweaves line, colour and form in a myriad of meanderings. We see riotous colour, surprising shapes and undulating forms.

    Alone with Trees, Grant’s solo show at the Gage Gallery, presents a unique vision of BC’s coastal landscapes. Drawn in by the lush colours and flowing textures, the viewer must interpret the subtext of these surreal environments. Visual story-telling abounds in Grant’s imaginative other-worldly vistas. We ponder our whereabouts and the events unfolding in these strange scenarios. But soon realize that the narrative thread connecting these artworks Involves relationships: to the land and each other. Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Saturday 11:00 - 5:00 Sundays, 12:00 - 4:00. Artist in Attendance. June 1, 11:00 - 2:00 June 3, 5, 8, 12, 18, 2:00 - 5:00 June 20, 12:00 - 4:00 http://www.artopenings.ca/anna-b-grant.html

    May 1-23, 2021 at Fortune Gallery Tuesday - Sunday 1pm - 5pm (during covid-19 restrictions) 537 Fisgard Street, Victoria, BC, V8W 1R3 http://www.artopenings.ca/ira-hoffecker-21.html In this new series, Ira Hoffecker introduces organic shapes into her geometric compositions. The twenty paintings still use geometric shapes and architectural mapping to create depth. “But they no longer refer to a specific place,” she says. “They now show elements of urban architecture in a landscape setting.” A significant shift in mediums took place within the evolving artworks. “I found oils to be a fantastic medium to work with when painting plants or landscapes,” she says.

    Heather Midori Yamada presents “Found" The “art of becoming” is a central theme in the creative outpourings of Heather Midori Yamada. “Nothing is certain in my art practice,” says the artist, “not knowing and understanding is part of my process and ongoing journey.” If Yamada is unsure about the artwork’s meaning and direction, she will let it sit. Often for decades. Each segment has a history which stays hidden until called up. The unfolding piece involves a relationship, between her, the maker, and the artwork coming into existence. By recombining and rearranging elements new meanings come forward. They become “found” moments in time. Preview with photos and story here http://www.artopenings.ca/yamada19.html
