Don't let this New West show fly past you
Avifauna is on until Sept. 20 at the Anvil Centre
Some of the artwork you can find at Avifauna, on until Sept. 20 at the Anvil Centre gallery.
Despite what Alfred Hitchcock might have been selling us, there is a rather natural beauty to birds.
As of today, there’s a little less than two weeks left to check out Avifauna: Sight and Perception, which features the artwork of Molly Gray and Nancy Whiteside. Gray is a Metro Vancouver artist who works just outside of Fort Langley, while Whiteside is based in New Westminster.
You may be wondering what the word ‘avifauna’ means: it refers to the birds of a certain geological period, habitat, or region. In this case, the joint show captures the beauty and brilliance of the birds of the Pacific Northwest.
Gray’s work typically utilizes linocut and silkscreen printing, ink and watercolour painting, and acrylic painting. For Whiteside, she likes acrylic, watercolour, ink on paper, encaustic, and ceramics.
On Sunday, Sept. 10, Whiteside will be hosting a demo of her work at the Anvil Centre, showing interested watchers how acrylic transfers work. Don’t miss it—the demo begins at 1pm in room 411.
