    A passionate landscape painter, Maria Josenhans creates oil paintings outdoors on location and in her North Vancouver studio. She considers the landscape her garden, a place of connecting with beauty that gives rise to something new and reaches beyond daily concerns. Whether it is a grand vista or an intimate pool by a stream, Maria strives to create a space for her viewer that shares a tender tribute to the ordinary.

    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

    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.

    Shinah begins her work on the floor, using the happy accidents of pigments as a backdrop. She then rotates her canvas on the wall until she is satisfied with its composition and vitality. As a final touch, she adds colours in very fast and instinctive gestures. Shinah’s paintings are inspired by images and vibrations she perceives in her surroundings. Not just a flower but a spontaneous emotion by which the artist shares her feelings about love and life.

    "For me creating art is a passion. A celebration of the joy and colour to be found in life. I paint as an expression of joy and energy. It is pure delight to squeeze out huge piles of oil paint, squish it around, have it blend, meld, combine. Wet paint, layer upon layer, morphing into a tangible and interesting surface. I strive to leave much to the imagination, for the viewer to fill in the blanks. To go from a blank, white canvas to one filled with brilliant, glorious colour - there is a huge sense of satisfaction in that." – Kimberly Kiel The Avenue Gallery 2184 Oak

    Throughout his years making unique woodworks, Laurie has discovered a passion for the dynamic differences in colour, contrast, grain and spalting. It can take a long time to best understand how to turn a rough piece of wood into a form that best highlights its colour and shape. Laurie tries to feature the natural aspects of live edge, knots and bark in all his sculptural vessels.

    Born and raised in Switzerland, Marianne has been living in BC’s Okanagan Valley for 20 years. Marianne's abstracted, spontaneous paintings allow her the freedom to express emotions and to experiment."My work is always changing, which gives me the pleasure to experiment and to move forward. I work and re-work my paintings until I reach the point when I feel that they express just the right amount of layering, structure and depth. The final colour constellations invite the viewer to find their own personal experience of my pieces. I believe that that’s what art should do." - Marianne Meyer

    By fusing traditional Japanese techniques with modern Canadian inspiration, Minori Takagi has developed a new style of wearable art. Her translucent glass chains are formed by linking handcrafted glass circles into one another, fashioning pieces that seem delicate but are actually resilient — solid loops that gleam radiant in the light. "With these forms, my glass art reminds me of the magic I used to watch my grandmother work—from raw substance emerges a new, poetic creation." Minori's glass jewellery is widely acclaimed. It won Vancouver Magazine’s 2019 “Made in Vancouver” Style categor

    Mary-Jean’s new oil paintings reflect the rugged landscape of British Columbia’s coastline. Her education in both fine art and graphic design play a strong role in the stylization of her work. "The focus of my work is the exploration of looking inward when interpreting the landscape, the opposition of different forms, lines and colour to intensify each element’s dynamic properties. The study of contrasts between massive trunks and juxtaposing the most delicate of foliage, the blackness of a heavy-handed shadow intensified by playful strokes of light." – Mary-Jean Butler

    A senior signature member of The Federation of Canadian Artists, Lorna Dockstader’s simplified style invokes the themes of purity and solitude. “Certain places have the ability to increase our sense of peacefulness, in an unpredictable world.” She believes that subtracting non-essentials, as well as the use of elegant colours, and neutrals, achieves her desired result.
