It’s happening! Much of the work that I have completed over the last 12 months will be on display during January at the Kamloops Art Council, and over the next little while I will post more work from the show here!
My good friend Beki suggested that I make postings to this blog more regular, so I will endeavor over the next 12 months to make sure I post on the first Friday of each month (more often if I can, but on the first Friday for sure).
For now, I’ll just include a written description of the show:
“Every landscape is storied and we all come to know these stories in our own way. Natural history field journals, with their easy confluence of art and science, promote a multi-layered conversation with the land. Within the journal format (bound in a book or spread across a full sheet of paper) watercolor paintings erupt between lines of handwritten text, poetry jostles for space alongside natural history observations, and “to do” lists languish beside sightings of returning songbirds. Too often overlooked, the Thompson Drainage runs rich with the stories of a living, breathing world. In this exhibit, field journal art documents and celebrates the natural history we can find just beyond our backyards.”
