New exhibit coming at Lake Country Art Gallery.

Lake Country Art Gallery to show WildMen

New exhibit coming from Okanagan artists to focus on men

Okanagan artists Jim Kalnin and Lucas Glenn come together in Lake Country Art Gallery’s latest exhibition titled WildMen.

In this exhibition Kalnin investigates and challenges the how we respond and interact with the natural world around us. Kalnin’s work consists of large semi-abstract acrylic and oil paintings along with a series of small watercolour paintings. The artist reaches into human cultures, religions, world views and ecological studies for thought and subject for his new series of paintings.

Kalnin has a long history in the local art scene having taught art for 22 years at Okanagan College, Okanagan University College and UBC Okanagan. Since retiring in 2009, Jim has rekindled his interests in making art, travelling and delving deeper into life’s great mysteries.

Meanwhile, Lucas Glenn’s installation titled, Goods for Men (Real Good Strong Men) looks at the media and consumerism in relation to male identity. The display looks into the problematic attitudes associated with masculinity such as ego, patriarchy, and anthropocentrism. Glenn’s work brings together satire, pseudo-history, and humour.

Glenn graduated from UBCO in 2015 with a focus on installation art and philosophy.

‘WildMen’ is up at the Lake Country Art Gallery from September 30th through to November 14th. Join us Wednesday September 30th from 6-8pm for opening night, artists will be in attendance.
