Join us between 6-9pm to view Haley’s latest collection and meet the artist.
Haley Hunt-Brondwin is a visual artist and designer from the west coast of BC, currently splitting her time between Vancouver and Powell River. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Art from Emily Carr University. Her studies included an exchange with the European Exchange Academy in Beelitz-Heilstatten, Germany. Haley has an interdisciplinary practice currently focused in painting and tapestry. Her work explores the qualities of human relationships and our phenomenological and physiological relationship to landscapes and the Natural world. Haley is interested in what is revealed amongst and within points of connection and dissociation – always in pursuit of the balance between tension and harmony.
Haley’s work is primarily abstract. She enjoys the provocative and challenging nature of abstraction. She feels it is a format she can explore within and invite viewers to participate by finding their own meaning and stories within her work.

~The BURYING GROUND~ (Vancouver/Gibsons)
Accompanied by Noah Gotfrit – upright bass & Clara Rose – fiddle, harmonies
“Across the three releases Woody Forster (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Devora Laye (vocals, washboard, singing saw) have established a sound that, should the fuzz, crackle and hiss of a well-loved 78 RPM record be added, would feel directly transported from the juke joints and speakeasies of the Prohibition era. This is beautifully realised, pure roots music created in the same spirit of contemporaries such as the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, The Crow Quill Night Owls, or fellow Vancouverites, Petunia & the Vipers. And, frankly, I cannot get enough of this wonderful stuff!” -David Morrison, Folk Radio UK
The Burying Ground plays authentically delivered, rustic old-timey country-blues, and swinging, jazz-flecked folk music. The core duo of Devora Laye (washboard, vocals, saw) and Woody Forster (guitar, vocals) are known for songwriting that illuminates the human experience, and reflects the modern day. It is today’s commentary on a framework of vintage music. They have been charming diverse crowds, across all ages and musical tastes, in large and small venues throughout Western Canada, United States, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Ireland. To date, they have released three albums that have all hit radio charts. The duo are accompanied by a rotating cast of masterful backing musicians.
“While they may be devoted to the precious music of a long gone golden era, they still have an awful lot to offer the present and future, as music this good is evidently timeless.” -David Morrison, Folk Radio UK
~DEANNA KNIGHT~ (Gibsons)
Best known as Vancouver’s gypsy-swing chanteuse with the Hot Club of Mars. Deanna’s passion for melody and lyric shine through in her own songwriting. With a healthy dose of both folk and jazz, she has the rare ability to dive deep into your heart and mind …not only leaving you with chills but also thoughts of love, blessings, hope, forgiveness and healing. www.deannaknight.ca

Carylann Loeppky is a fine art painter. Her compelling portraits and figurative paintings focus on the feminine form, charm and illusions.
Inspired by 17th century french court painters and 20th century french surrealists, Loeppky draws on classical techniques to bring the canvas to life. Her figures haunt you with their gaze, please you with their poses and bewilder you with their secrets. They call to your spirit: spellbound ballerinas, gone girls and decadent queens living on the edge of night, or is it a country lake?
What is their story? They make you want to know.
Loeppky’s past exhibitions include solo shows in Montreal, New York, and Los Angeles, as well as exhibits in Croatia and London, England. As Juno award-nominated graphic designer, she’s produced album art for Nettwerk label artists Delerium, Front Line Assembly, and Skinny Puppy among others. Carylann lives and works in Vancouver, B.C.

There is a common perception that if art includes humour, it somehow robs the work of its substance. Coralie’s take is that art should evoke emotion and if that emotion involves having a good belly laugh, then the work is a success.
Coralie paints the things that amuse and intrigue her; ordinary things that people look at every day, but seldom really see. All of her subject matter bears the indelible mark of humanity, warts and all.
She sculpts the kind of characters that you’re likely to meet on the street. They are the faces of people that you swear you’ve met somewhere before and the histories of their lives are etched in their expressions.
Coralie, who grew up in New Zealand, now makes her home in Gibsons Landing, British Columbia.

Letters, numbers and images are used to visually communicate a thought or idea – arranged into a specific order so that others are able to “decode” the message. In my work I use letters, numbers and images in non-traditional ways and incorporate color, lines and various mixed media elements to build structure and draw out themes and ideas that connect us to past experiences or memories. The goal is not only to showcase the beauty inherent in the elements themselves, but also to engage both the logical side of the brain, which wants to decode the message and the creative side, which desires to find its own unique experience.
Michael Soltis is an American/Canadian visual artist and home designer/builder. He has a Masters degree in Education, has worked in the business and non-profit sector as a high level manager, and was a film and television actor for several years. His passion has always been the arts and his work has been shown in several galleries throughout North America and been featured in Canadian House & Home, HGTV.ca, Anthology Magazine, The Artist Catalogue, the Vancouver TED Conference, Comic Con in Vancouver as well as several contemporary art blogs and articles. He is the recipient of awards from both the Society of Canadian Artists and the Canadian Federation of Artists and his paintings are held in corporate and private collections throughout the United States, Canada and Europe.

Ronan Boyle was born in Derry, Northern Ireland and came to Canada as a child in 1974. Drawing, painting and sculpting since childhood, he is a self-taught artist; his main inspirations stem from the Pop movement of the ’60s and the Do-It-Yourself movement of New York’s punk scene in the late ’70s and early ’80s. His work has an edgy street aesthetic with a clean sophistication.
Ronan currently lives and paints in Vancouver.

Each piece in Mycroft’s body of work chronicles a search for equilibrium. Her striving to balance value, composition, and colour achieves the depth and richness of her paintings: their sense of harmony.
Mycroft begins with a colour palette that is both crafted and intuited. She selects and mixes it with precision, though its tones are collected through a largely subconsious reading of our environment. She immerses herself in the water-saturated colours of the Pacific Northwest’s coastal trees, fields, rocks and ocean, which form her palette. However, it is not their literal forms but their chromatic features and refractions of light that lend her work its distinct abstraction and movement. Memories of place form a starting point, but Mycroft is committed to an abstraction that allows expression of forms, tones, and hues in themselves. Bands of colour converge, as her play with different levels of transparencies achieves the illusion of depth and hue revealing new tones in their unification.
Mycroft’s process is based in the concept of flux. While we commonly use this word as ‘change’, its literal meaning is ‘flow’. After establishing her colour field, Mycroft pours water-thinned acrylic paint onto clear primed raw canvas, creating stains of varying opacities. This is the moment where the nature of the medium literally merges with the artist’s practice; Mycroft must at once respond to and guide the flow of the water onto the canvas. Lifting, tilting, asserting, and yielding all fill the brief space between the water’s contact and its settling. While the throughline of Mycroft’s works reflects the consistency of her process, the viscosity and volume of diluted paint are unique each time, calling the artist to respond with immediacy to the unexpected dynamics at play across the canvas.
The effects of Mycroft’s unique approach re-enact the play of light and colour evident throughout our living surroundings. Washes of overlapping transparencies and intersections of colour create new and exciting hues. There are pops of opacity and unexpected colours vividly reminiscent of those we see in the flux of water through our oceans and rivers. The intersections and disruptions of colour along the canvas are kindred to those along our coast.
