Mediums: Wood, Bark, Lichen, Resin, Found objects.

Artist Biography:

Gail began practising art in her 50s, following careers in advertising and special education. Initially taking a couple of weekend courses in encaustic art in Ontario, and working for several years at her home studio, she later completed a 2-year fine art diploma while living in Ireland. More recently, her work has focussed on found objects, discovered while exploring the rural and urban areas around Kamloops. She has a small studio on Victoria Street, and this is her second solo show with the Kamloops Arts Council.

Artist Statement:

Whether walking in nature or in the city, heightened observation often reveals small elements of beauty in items not traditionally thought of as beautiful. Yet, these items have an energy, a history, and a story attached to them. Combining these found objects in a piece of art, continues their evolution, or journey. However, it hasn’t ended with this piece of art. I am motivated by the challenge of working with found objects and having a creative process that depends on serendipity.

The Kamloops Courthouse Gallery is a non-profit, co-operative art gallery which was founded in 2007 by a small group of dedicated artists from the Kamloops area. Today, the Gallery and Gift Shop are managed by a growing group of artists offering a wide range of talents and skills.

The purpose of the gallery is to provide a venue for member artists to sell their work while offering the community an opportunity to experience different forms of visual and functional art. Our objectives are to provide continuing support for the co-op and its membership through the gift shop and by organizing artisan fairs in the Old Courthouse.

Another objective is to provide education by offering demonstrations and workshops for those interested in learning a new art form.

We are dedicated to creating an enriching and cultural experience for both residents and visitors of Kamloops, as well as the people of British Columbia. Culture, Art, Community and Prosperity all become a reality as a result of this initiative. We are located in the historic “Old Kamloops Courthouse” which we share with the Kamloops Community Arts Council and Arnica.

The Kamloops Courthouse Gallery Gift Shop boasts an unmatched selection of media and styles including pottery, jewelry, glass art, paintings, scupture and fibre art to suit the tastes of casual shoppers as well as serious collectors.
