Members' Exhibition 2014

32nd Annual Members’ Exhibition (2014)


The 32nd Annual Members' Exhibition at the Campbell River Art Gallery featured nearly 70 artists and many artistic styles.

The exhibition, co-presented by the CR Art Gallery and the CR Arts Council, is one of the most popular of the year, attracting hundreds of local residents and visitors.

The exhibition was sponsored by CR Lawyers – Shook, Wickham, Bishop and Field. The opening night attracted more than 150 people, who gathered to see the jurors and local dignitaries present this year's awards. Awards of Excellence went to Pavel Barta for his work 'Walking' and to Ruth MacLaurin for her piece 'Earth Without Borders.'

Awards of Merit were presented to Luise Grav ('Meanwhile, Back at the Barn'), Janis Guthy ('Hard at Work'), Judy Hilgemann ('The Painted Piano'), Martina Kowalchuk ('Extinction Fish'), Christina Munck ('Truchas, New Mexico') and Perrin Sparks ('Mathilde's Prose').

Honourable Mentions went to Kathryn Botsford ('Secrets Within'), Jeff Hartbower ('Chemo'), Tina Johansen ('Untitled'), Kerry Kowalchuk ('Natural edge poplar bowl'), Marcy Prior ('Bewicks Wren) and Carol Seeley ('First Passage').

This year, the winner for the People's Choice Award is 'Extinction Fish' by Martina Kowalchuk. Kowalchuk is a sculpture enthusiast who studied at the Emily Carr University of Art & Design. Her memorable fish sculpture received the most votes from members of the public who visited the exhibition. Kowalchuk will be receiving a gift certificate generously donated by the Needle & Art Centre as her winning prize.
We would like to thank Impressions Custom Framing and Pier Street Gallery for their wonderful prizes for the Awards of Excellence and to Thrifty Foods for their support of the exhibition opening.
