Previous Exhibit – Linda Dzus & Abbey Manellis – March 31 – May 7/2017

Local Artist Linda Dzus and her good friend Abbey Blair-Brown from Tsawwassen are sharing this months spotlight here at Shavasana Art Gallery & Café. Linda and Abbey have been friend for over 20 years and decided several months ago to combine forces and exhibit their talents here at the gallery. The show is called “Halos, Landscapes Mud & Stone”.

Linda is a photographer and has mounted a fabulous series of prints that reflect the natural beauty of Mayne Island. She is also exhibiting a series of whimsical yet realistic paintings of local fauna on various sized beach rocks. Abbey has produced a gorgeous series of paintings, ceramic plates, bowls and figurines that focus primarily on the female form with iconic inclusion of bird imagery, text, flowers and colourful patterns to evoke – in her own words – “a sense of humility”…here is a short video walkthrough to give you a better idea:

The opening on Friday March 31 was a lively and  fun evening of art, delicious snacks (catered by Astrid) and good conversation…the show runs until May 7.
