Wed-Mon, March 12-May 5, 2014, 8:30am-5:00pm | NORTH VANCOUVER COMMUNITY ARTS COUNCIL PRESENTS MIYUKI SHINKAI AT THE CITY ATRIUM GALLERY Margaret’s vision and style is an exploration of both message and medium. From the valley, the rivers, and the rain, to the minute intermingled debris on the forest floor, her paintings speak of the pervasive force of nature to bring both wonder and pathos into focus. She often employs thick layers of oil paint or mixed media and vibrant complementary colours or she will paint and draw using items from nature, like a twig, a feather or the pointed end of a piece of driftwood. Her brush strokes and natural patterns are influenced by the rhythm and beats of the music she listens to while she paints. This experience transports her to a refuge, restoring equilibrium and balance, as if sitting quietly in a dark corner of the forest or at the edge of a waterfall.

Revel in the innovation and creation of art made by recycling materials. This exhibition focuses on the work of 17 artists who have found inspiration from industrial, consumer, found or everyday materials that are no longer desired, needed or can fulfill the original purpose. The art is made of at least 75% of materials re-purposed from its original use or intention. Some distinctive must-see pieces include: a dress made from plastic bags, a drill transformed into a roller-skating robot with a rocket dog, a roadster made out of a toaster and 8000 pennies that make up the portrait of the Queen.

Artists: Valerie Arntzen, William Frymire, Ann Hamm, Lorraine Kwan, Launi Lucas, Gabriele Maurus, Kathy Nash, Graham Schodda, Ron Simmer, Anne Souther, Kaarina Talvila, Frances Solar, Melanie Thompson, Derek von Essen, Laura Wallace, Anne-Francoise Wauthy, Karen Yaremkewich
