    “The desire to create art has been with me for as long as I can remember. It satisfies a kind of primal urge to construct. The winding of the figures, for me, is a very intimate experience. It is where I try to translate the emotion or movement of the piece. My inspiration has always come from personal experience. During my working years in health care, I have been witness to turbulence and tenderness. My sculptural work represents these moments. It is a sort of communication that I find hard to put into words; They are, for me, small windows into shared experiences.” - Janis Woode The Avenue Gallery 2184 Oak Bay Avenue Monday - Saturday: 10am - 5pm, Sunday 11am - 4:30pm

    Wind your way through the faceted landscapes of Philip Mix, where moments of time stand still, solid forms vibrate, and colour separates into prismatic layers. Dramatic and sculptural -- a kaleidoscope of colour and geometry. Time of day and natural elements appear reconstructed into a layered perspective that creates a stained glass collage out of our coastal habitat. Philip is intrigued with the intricacies of motion, rhythm and patterns found in nature such as leaves in the wind or ripples on the pond. His delight with colour and fascination with movement are themes that resonate throughout his work. "Our Pacific paradise, if anything, has an enduring sense of timelessness. It’s true the light is always shifting, from hazy to breaking brilliant, soft focus to rugged outline, but within the nuance there is persistent note of pristine clarity. Like a new Eden, its purity sings in harmonic tones, a subtle orchestration of wistful color that always holds my fascination." - Philip Mix The Avenue Gallery 2184 Oak Bay Avenue Monday - Saturday: 10am - 5pm, Sunday 11am - 4:30pm See more at www.theavenuegallery.com

    Much of Brenda Roy’s jewellery explores contrasts in colour and texture: smooth stone and polished metal set off by fused or roller printed textures; precious gems and metals paired with rough minerals and contemporary designs that have the feel of ancient artifacts. She loves to play with the surprise of asymmetrical designs in unexpected material combinations and is one of the few metal artists in the country extensively using stone inlay in her work. “I believe there is still a place for beautiful, well-made objects and that these objects enrich our lives. A piece of jewellery acquires meaning over time as it develops associations with the stories of our lives, and these acquired meanings are as important for me as the artist’s original concepts.” - Brenda Roy The Avenue Gallery 2184 Oak Bay Avenue Monday - Saturday: 10am - 5pm, Sunday 11am - 4:30pm See more at www.theavenuegallery.com

    Tanya Bone is an artist working in a classical technique. She never tires of the hushed silence of a still life: "I get lost in the choices and the beauty of balancing still life arrangements."

    Lisa Samphire’s Carnival Series is the celebration and culmination of 35 years of training and working with handblown glass. Working in a series allows Lisa to play with form, colour and pattern using a labour intensive process. She loves how the linear pattern informs the shape of the pieces and defines its limits. Balancing process with the aesthetics of the final piece has resulted in bright, cheery and complex works of art.

    The natural vegetation and everchanging weather of Vancouver Island were the inspiration for Rob Elphinstone's latest collection, capturing a feeling of wildness rather than the realistic details. “[Rob] whips up oil paint into a froth and then moulds it into swirling shapes, revealing like Van Gogh the underlying patterns of which our landscapes are made. He seems to be channeling every chapter of Canadian art history (Group of Seven, Emily Carr, Paul Emile Borduas) in his vigorous and rambunctious paintings.” - Robert Amos The Avenue Gallery 2184 Oak Bay Avenue Monday - Saturday: 10am - 5pm, Sunday 11am - 4:30pm See more at www.theavenuegallery.com

    As a resident of the Okanagan Valley, Marianne drew inspiration this winter from the dark blues and blacks of the frozen lake. As the temperature warmed, interesting-shaped cracks appeared in the ice. She has captured this in richly layered works of art that show light and shadow in their depths.

    Gordon Scott's early experimentation in a range of mediums – watercolour, charcoal and photography has led to his back-painted acrylic and ink on glass technique. He feels the use of glass panels combined with vivid colours has allowed him to fully express himself and create unique contemporary art. Gordon's panels that hang on the wall are equally as stunning as his tables.

    We are thrilled to welcome the lively paintings of BC artist Claire Huang to The Avenue Gallery! Describing her art as "a tribute to the places that evoke a moment of contemplation," Claire Huang enjoys spaces that have mystery and atmosphere. She explores the duality of a conscious world filtered through ambiguity and clarity. Influenced by her early background in architectural design, Claire often turns to architecture as the inspiration for her work.
