One of the 50 wonderful drawings by local artist George Rychter on display at the O'Connor Gallery.


he show Goddess is an exotic visual journey, reflects the artist's 30-year passion on this subject. On display at the O'Conner Group Gallery at the Chilliwack Cultural Center, will be 27 sculptures, including such mediums as steel, wood, stone, clay, resin, often in combinations.

The walls will be filled with 50 drawings in graphite and pen and ink, including the wildly creative drawings in the round. which are executed on large Tusks, each of which is suspended independently in the middle of its own pyramidal frame.
These richly varied artistic creations, slip between sublime ecstasy of the Moon Goddess and Siren Series. Travel with Rychter into a darker world of the midnight narrative with the series Soliloquy, Tusks, and Grail. Either way, there is no doubt that this show will stimulate the viewer's own creative reflections.

When: April 1 - May 7, Wednesdays through Saturdays from noon until 5 pm.


Opening Reception: Meet the Artist is on Saturday, April 2nd from 1-3 pm. and admission is free



About George Rychter

I am a graduate of Chilliwack Senior Secondary in 1971 (I think it was 71), and was very much involved in their visual arts program. It was my instructors at CSS who inspired me to apply to art school in England, which I did, and received a BFA from Brighton Polytechnic in 1977, and went onto my MFA from University of Regina in 1979.
