The “Pacific Rim Islands” by Debra Kuzbik will be shown at the McMillan Arts Centre from Sept. 1 to 26.

Masterful Colour and Style exhibit at MAC

The exhibit runs from Sept. 1 to the 26 at the McMillian Arts Centre in Parksville

The Oceanside Community Arts Council and the McMillan Arts Centre are pleased to present the “Masterful Colour and Style” exhibit and sale of outstanding art by The Federation of Canadian Artists — Arrowsmith Chapter, The Silk Worm Group and Debra Kuzbik.

Running Sept. 1-26, there is an opening reception to meet the artists Saturday, Sept. 5 from 1 to 3 p.m. These collective artists have unique and fresh ways of looking at the world, translating their revelation onto silk, paper, canvas and whatever other materials they find necessary to elucidate and illuminate their interpretation of the abstract and reality.

The Federation of Canadian Artists and its eleven chapters were founded in 1941 by a group of artists, including Group of Seven luminary, Lawren Harris. One of three chapters on Vancouver Island, the Arrowsmith Chapter was formed in 1995 and has since grown to its present roster of over 80 members. These artists represent the visual arts community from Victoria to Quadra Island and all points in between, with many residing in the Parksville Qualicum Beach area.

The Silk Worm Club was founded by Maureen Walker, AFCA and began with three members.

For photographer Debra Kuzbik, the natural world in general, and forests in particular, has long been a source of wonder, personal renewal and inspiration.

She prefers to interpret, rather than record the world around her honouring the transient beauty of the moment.

For more information contact the McMillan Arts Centre at 250-248-8185 and stop by in Parksville from Tuesday to  Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
