Virtuous Imagination

Ec-Lec-Tic gallery CVAA show Oct 26 to Nov 25
By Mary Main, CVAA



refreshing & enlightening exhibit that embraces culture, the humanities and the environment, featuring recent and new artwork by a diverse group of five established local artists.

Each piece exhibited is totally original; hand crafted and reflects the personality and emotions of their creator resulting in a truly ec-lec-tic collection.


Ross Paterson: Woodturning Art: Ross marries his knowledge of wood, woodturning skills and imagination with the natural characteristics of the medium. Most pieces turned are created from trees native to the North West. 





Diane Davidson Bastien: Batik: The medium of Batik involves working with natural fiber fabrics, hot liquid paraffin wax and cold fabric dyes. Her inspiration and themes come from her knowledge, research & imagination.


Mary Stanley:  Pine Needle Basketry: Mary uses fundamental basket weaving skills to create unique pieces. She uses predominantly South or West Coast themes, often applying natural shells, bone or precious stones as embellishment.


Judy Hurley:  Textile Artist: who loves texture and colour and manipulates ordinary fabrics by, burning, creasing, stitching, wrapping, clamping and embellishing their surface to create extraordinary pictures and panels.
