Arts Scene

Nuance, Suggestion and Definition

Vincent Mikuska gallery show at the Cultch to Oct 27

Released by Sue Grass, CVAA

 

nuance is a shade, degree, touch, trace or hint. Suggestion is a proposal, evocation, or implication. Definition is meaning, clarity, or exactness.

 

The Chilliwack Visual Artists Association is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by local artist Vincent Mikuska, who has used hints and suggestions of landscape elements in his work to create an essence or experience of landscape.

 

This is based on associations between different elements of visual experience... a world where line has a poetic rhythm, colour a musical tone, and space can be hinted at or defined. The paintings capture the process of visually interacting with your surroundings over time, arriving at the essence without the details.

 

Mikuska has shown at numerous galleries across the Lower Mainland and elsewhere in Canada. He holds a B.A. in Art History from the University of Manitoba, and a P.D.P. Certificate from Simon Fraser University.

You are invited to join us for the opening reception and meet the artist on the evening of Wednesday September 21st, from 7 - 9 pm in the Chilliwack Art Gallery in the Cultural Centre.

Chilliwack Art Gallery at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, 9201 Corbould Street.
Gallery hours: Wednesday to Saturday - noon to 5:00 pm, and open during some theatre shows and special events.
