    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 The Avenue Gallery 2184 Oak Bay Avenue Monday - Saturday: 10am - 5pm, Sunday 11am - 4:30pm See more at www.theavenuegallery.com

    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 category, and has been featured in The Georgia Straight, the Canadian craft magazine Studio Magazine, and the book 1000 Beads by Lark Crafts. Minori lives and works in Vancouver, BC. The Avenue Gallery 2184 Oak Bay Avenue Monday - Saturday: 10am - 5pm, Sunday 11am - 4:30pm See more at www.theavenuegallery.com

    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 The Avenue Gallery 2184 Oak Bay Avenue Monday - Saturday: 10am - 5pm, Sunday 11am - 4:30pm See more at www.theavenuegallery.com

    Artistic inspiration began at an early age for William Liao. Growing up in Beijing, China after the Cultural Revolution, he was surrounded by classical Chinese culture as well as new European art. These are the influences which continue to define and inspire his work today. With seven years of professional training, he graduated from Beijing Normal University, with a Bachelor of Arts degree and a major in Fine Arts. Now living in Vancouver, William finds inspiration for spectacular cityscapes in his new home. His paintings combine traditional mediums with modern techniques, providing his audience with another dimension of experience. In 2017, William won the Art Battle Vancouver and First Place in the Acrylics in Action show.

    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.

    Geoff Searle adds his own artistic flair to the centuries-old art of Raku ceramics. Pots that are almost dry are polished to a mirror-like finish using the back of a silver spoon. This process is repeated twice more before being fired. Once cooled the pot is wrapped in an assortment of organic materials and metallic salts which are fumed during a second firing. All pieces are fired in the same way, yet they each take on a different appearance, creating unique, complex and exciting works of art.

    A contemporary impressionist artist, Eunmi Conacher creates paintings which bring energy to the canvas. Using depth of colour to balance realism and abstraction, she captures the mood of a scene, connecting her viewer emotionally to the painting.

    Angela and Ryan Rosenberg have been creating jewellery together since 2007. Moving to Creston, B.C. their Silversmithing studio was born in their hillside house, across from vineyards and orchards. Inspired by the mountain vistas and rocky shores of the valley’s lakes, their jewellery designs flourished. Thirteen years later, their Silversmithing has evolved and transformed, almost instinctively with the changing of the seasons.

    Artist Janis Woode was born in Prince Rupert, British Columbia in 1962. She obtained college certification as a long term care aide and spent the next three decades at various jobs in the health care field. She also received formal artistic training in the handling of materials, first at the Emily Carr College of Art and Design in 1985 and later at Capilano College. Her work with metal, which originated at Emily Carr, triggered a desire to learn to weld which opened the door to articulate her artistic vision. She has worked in metal ever since. Janis credits her long work experience in health care as the source for many of her artistic inspirations. She says, “This work has given me special insight into the human experience. My hope is that my sculpture draws a common thread for the viewer, a thread that ties us together as people no matter how individual our experiences may be.” The Avenue Gallery 2184 Oak Bay Avenue Monday - Saturday: 10am - 5pm, Sunday 11am - 4:30pm See more at www.theavenuegallery.com

    Yared's paintings have a palpable energy that is optimistic and thoughtful, much like Yared himself. Fusing bold brushstrokes with a bright, opulent palette, his paintings are provocative and convey a narrative much deeper than the mere appearance of the subject.
