2023 Landscapes Exhibition

JUN 12 - JUL 2, 2023

A misconception about landscape paintings is that they are simply a depiction of a place; in fact, landscape painting is a method of self-expression, portraying the emotions of the painter and highlighting their appreciation of nature and the world around them. In the 2023 Landscapes Exhibition, do come and allow us to share my reverence for the natural and man-made world and showcase what makes these locations special. Join us for this year's exhibition from June 12th - July 2nd!

2023 Small Exhibition

APR 4 - 14, 2023

The beautiful thing about small artworks is that they invite the viewer to look closely. To spend time with a painting, to marvel at its details and the skill with which the artist composed it. There is something incredibly special and intimate about small artworks, and they are a perfect way to freshen up your dwelling for spring. You can add a little something to your gallery wall, or add a unique touch to a space that's lacking artwork! With over one hundred pieces in this year's Small Exhibition there's something for everyone to enjoy.

I am honoured to have been chosen as the Federation Gallery's featured artist for the month. With 17 pieces, this is by far the most extensive collection of works for the feature wall. The 'Snow-Mountain' theme is perfect for this month as we slowly transition out of snowy weather, leaving behind these beautiful images of British Columbia's snow mountains captured on this collection.

Animalis Exhibition

MAR 7 - 19, 2023

Depicting animals in art is nothing new, in fact it dates back over 17,000 years ago to the Lascaux caves. So what keeps artists returning to this captivating and inspiring subject matter? Find out in our latest exhibition, Animalis! From works about rural life and furry friends, to majestic creatures in the wild, animals are used in art in a multitude of ways. These pieces can help us reflect on the ways we care for wildlife and the environment, and our relationships with those animals that are part of the family.

Mixed Exhibition

OCT 31 - NOV 13, 2022

Mixed media artworks are becoming increasingly popular among both artists and collectors, as new media is discovered and developed and fresh ways to use media are being explored. In the Federation’s first exhibition dedicated to mixed media artwork, you'll find a wide range of styles that explore the materiality of art making. From collage to assemblage and everything in between, these artworks are made through a combination of traditional and some non-traditional materials. You'll see two-dimensional works with all manner of paints, pastels and charcoals, as well as thorns, string, metal, wood, plastic, and more. Be sure to visit the Federation Gallery from October 31st - November 13th to enjoy the visual treat that is the 2022 Mixed Exhibition!

Abstracted - Square.jpg

Abstracted Exhibition

AUG 15 - 28, 2022

Abstract art makes meaning of the world around us by reshaping it through colour, line, form and texture. It highlights the role of imagination in the process of creation. It demands close observation and deep reflection. One must take a good long look to carefully unveil the layers that are unfolding on the canvas. Abstraction in its many forms highlights the beauty that artists can create when they seek to work outside of the everyday.

Landscapes Square.jpg

2022 Landscapes Exhibition

MAY 23 - JUN 5, 2022

Landscape art encompasses a variety of scenes; they might be entirely imaginary, or they could be copied from reality with a range of accuracy. Some landscape artists work from photos they've taken on their journeys in nature, while others chose to work from memory, allowing their intuition to guide them to recreate the feeling of being in the great outdoors or on a busy city street. Landscape painting continues to be a popular subject matter for both our artists and our collectors, and we are delighted to be bringing the Landscapes exhibition back to you. Browse through this work and allow yourself to be immersed in scenery that blends dream and reality.
