August exhibits with the MAC

Parksville gallery has two new in-house exhibits, one external exhibit

The McMillan Arts Centre is hosting three exhibits in August.

Teresa Knight is the curator of the exhibit Non-Human Persons featuring work of Fiona Hawkes, Katerina Pravdivaia, Ian Fry and Carla Stein.  The subject is the common perception of the natural world as holding less value than the human-made environment, and creating a platform for conversation to generate social, economic and political change and highlighting species at risk.

Never Too Late To Learn is a seniors art program featuring artwork from residents of Qualicum Manor, The Gardens and Stanford Place. The opening reception for the exhibit is Aug. 25 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the MAC (133 McMillan St., Parksville).

The MAC’s External Exhibit at Cafe Adagio features local artist Jode Tilley.

Encaustic art, an ancient art form involving the application of wax by means of a hot instrument, often results in totally unpredictable images interpreted solely by viewers  imaginations. A floral image may in the end become a landscape. Tilley describes her art form as “a controlled accident process.”

Cafe Adagio (147 Harrison Ave., Parksville) is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m to 3 p.m.
