Paintings by Linda Vivas & Sculptures by Jack Shaw
Artist/Painter Linda Vivas vibrant paintings portray a theme entitled: “Time of the Quest.” Over forty paintings tell a story of about twenty-one steps that “Dolly, the Sheep,” takes to transform herself in order to become her true self. Through the use of oil paintings and text blurbs describing each lesson Dolly learns, the art viewer comes to understand the meaning of each challenge Dolly overcomes on her journey.
Artist/Sculptor Jack Shaw produces bronze and stone sculpture often combining figurative elements with abstraction. Several of his sculptures include a motif he calls “Time Waves.” While his artistic journey is quite distinct from Linda’s, both artists incorporate elements regarding the passage of time, and create a relational environment between painting, story, sculpture, and viewer.
You are invited to preview this show during the Dunsmuir Autumn Art Walk, and return for the Artists’ Reception from 5 to 7pm. The show runs through Saturday, December 5th.
