Noted local artist Doris Laner is planning an art show celebrating Wells Gray Park.

Appropriately, the show (to be titled “Spirit of Place”) will be held in the newly renovated Upper Clearwater Hall, an historic building located next to the park that was built by settlers in the 1930s. The hall is about 23 km from Highway 5 on Clearwater Valley Road.

Laner has lived and worked near the entrance to Wells Gray Park for many years.  Her subject matter has been the endless inspiration she finds around her.  Through intimate study, exploration and immersion she strives to portray the diversity found in this special land and how we relate to this wilderness. Her approach is always with a deep sense of honour, respect, and wonder.

In this exhibition of 36 artworks a variety of mediums are displayed: oils, watercolour, pastel, gouache and pencil.

Come up and view one person’s vision of a place that she loves. You could make a day of it by going further into Wells Gray Park to enjoy it firsthand and be inspired by the great beauty.

 

The show will run June 23 – July 7, 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. daily.
