The annual residency provides an unfurnished two-bedroom suite with adjoining studio space on the second floor of the Ranger Station Art Gallery. In exchange for this space the Artist in Residence will be expected to devote an average of ten hours per week to the operation of the Arts Council and the Ranger Station Art Gallery. The majority of this time will be spent working in the gallery on Saturdays, Sundays and holiday Mondays from 1-5pm. The Artist in Residence will also present an annual art exhibit of their work in June and organize two public outreach programs or workshops. Artist in residence is responsible for monthly utility costs of residence and studio. Please refer to the artist in residence job description for specific duties and responsibilities at

Fri-Mon, February 20-May 16, 2016, 11-6 Tues-Sat | LIVING WITH GLASS For well over five centuries, glass from the island of Murano, Italy has been desired by collectors of all persuasions, from leading scholars to day-trip tourists. The extraordinary skill of Murano’s glassmakers is indisputable. Veritable magicians, they transform cold material into explosions of light and color, encapsulated through the centuries in vases, sculptures, chandeliers, and tableware.

Sun-Tues, March 1-31, 2015, 2:00pm | HELENA WADSLEY, PAINTINGS Ranger Station Art Gallery, Harrison, BC
Humans are small and insignificant when in the vastness of nature. The subjects of these landscape paintings swing a pendulum between barren lands that contain a single sign of human existence and land that is over-developed. The colours are purposely exaggerated; the intention is to draw attention these sites, and the way they are experienced, as constructed.
