5 artists exhibit in group show at Gabriola Island’s Free Spirit Gallery

Works by Karen Cain, Deborah Dallyn, Judy Mountjoy, Jan Grenke and Larisa Bothma

Gabriola Island’s Free Spirit Gallery will host five various media artists until just after Thanksgiving long weekend.

Until Oct. 11, the work of Karen Cain, Deborah Dallyn, Judy Mountjoy, Jan Grenke and Larisa Bothma can be viewed in the ‘Off the Tour’ group show at 590 North Rd. from Tuesdays to Fridays, with the gallery operating from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“As we move past summer and into autumn, our physical landscape and environment transitions into a new cycle of change,” noted a release for the exhibit. “This shift means a time of creativity. Nature follows seasons and so do artists, although not always in sync.”

The Gabriola artists featured at the gallery present pieces of their own reflection on shifting time and change.

The release noted that Cain will present abstract and textured mixed media pieces that “explore concepts of time and places from various perspectives,” Bothma will show personal fibre-based pieces that represent what her family went through following their son’s traumatic medical diagnosis, Mountjoy will show pieces produced after emerging from a creative block brought on by the pandemic, Grenke will delve deep in the “magic of glazes” and “the powerful chemistry that takes place in the kiln” in her pottery work, and Dallyn will show pieces that were once ordinary found objects and transformed into new constructions that demonstrate her interest in ideas about the environment.

An opening exhibit will be held Friday, Sept. 30, from 6-8 p.m. at the gallery.
