Art exhibit to examine patterns and repetitions

The Summerland Community Arts Council will open its newest show.

The Summerland Community Arts Council is excited to announce the opening of their newest gallery show titled, Patterns: The Order Which a Series Occurs in Tessellation, by Chilliwack artist Patrick Thomas Wood.

Wood has always been interested in patterns and repetition.

He states that when an image or pattern is used in art production it seems quite interesting, but when it is reused multiple times, it is justified and reassuring to the overall image.

Art has always required a degree of justification to calculate quality, ability to measure relevance which is his rationale behind the series, Patterns.

Wood studied art at Kwantlen University College and continued his studies earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design.

He also holds a Bachelor of Education from the University of British Columbia. Patrick invites you to “drink in the colour, for the sum of the pieces make up the whole.”

The show opens tonight, Aug. 13, at 7 p.m. with a cheese and wine reception and will be on display for six weeks until Sept. 26.

The Summer Arts Program for kids continues with its last week of classes Aug. 17 to 21.

A few spots are still available in Cartoon Craze – a week long introduction to the art of cartooning for ages nine and up. Register at the Art Centre 9908 Main St. or call 250-494-4494.

Stop by the gallery to pick up your walking tour Art Walk map as well! There are 43 artists displaying works in 34 Summerland businesses this year.

Take a stroll through each destination and discover the artists of our very own Okanagan Valley.

Wednesdays on the Water continues at Peach Orchard Beach this Wednesday, Aug. 19 at 6:30 p.m. with local Summerland group Allison Allther and Done Workin’.

Allther’s voice is fresh yet soulful, sensuous yet sweet. Her songs have flavours of roots, blues, western swing, torch, country, Latin, folk and jazz blended into an all-acoustic refined homegrown sound.

Allther’s warm, soulful voice is accented with an honest song writing style, diverse with attitudes sweet and sassy to rockin’, and are completed with the smooth tones of musical ensemble Done Workin’.

Allther and her band look forward to serenading you this Wednesday at Peach Orchard Beach.

Carmen McDowell is the Summer Arts Program coordinator for the Summerland Community Arts Council, P.O. Box 1217, 9908 Main St., Summerland, B.C. V0H 1Z0.
