“Inspirations and Insights” by Linda Scarfo in the KAC Hallway Gallery

A World of Wonders

Mediums: Acrylic

Artist Biography:

Linda Scarfo has enjoyed drawing and painting for many years with her first formal training in the Visual Arts Program at Northern Lights College in the 1980s. She finds motivation in depicting the wide variety of wildlife and scenery of BC. Constantly striving to improve her technique and mastery of acrylic painting, she has attended workshops led by Michael O’Toole, Terry Isaacs, Perry Haddock, and Debbie Milner-Lively among many others. She is an active member of the Kamloops Arts & Crafts Club and Kamloops Artists and recently joined Artzone at Sun Peaks. Participating in sales and markets, the main product she sells consists of photo art cards of her work.

Artist Statement:

Coming out of the past two years of working mainly in isolation, the renewed opportunity for sharing artwork is exciting. In this exhibit, I have striven to present the widest possible variety of subjects that I enjoy painting, including scenery, animals and birds. I always try to incorporate the new ideas and techniques learned at the various workshops I have attended to make my paintings more interesting and appealing. Both 5×7 art cards and 8×10 enlargements are available at markets over the summer including Sun Peaks Farm Market on Sundays from June to October and Westsyde Farm Market which will hopefully start again in May and run every second week on Saturdays until the end of August.
Linda’s show will be exhibited in the Hallway gallery from April 20 to May 7, 2022

About Kamloops Courthouse Gallery

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.
