Please join us Thursday, Feb. 24 as artist Destanne Norris presents Life, Nature, Art & Healing, encapsulating her journey and practice as an artist from her undergraduate days, to her Master of Fine Art studies, to the present day. A passion for natural environments and the elements, especially mountains and water, are the source of Norris’ artistic inspiration, while landscape and place, metaphor and symbol, embodiment and Romanticism are her research interests. Through her art, she has discovered the power art can play in self-discovery and healing.
Destanne Norris received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (honours) in painting and drawing from the University of Victoria in 1987 and a Masters Degree in Fine Arts from the University of Tasmania in 2009. Norris` paintings have been exhibited in public, university and artist-run galleries and is represented in numerous private and corporate collections, as well as being in the collection of the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and the Penticton Art Gallery. The artist is represented by Gallery Odin at Silver Star Mountain and by Mountain Galleries in Jasper, Banff and Whistler. Norris currently resides in Vernon.
Life, Nature, Art & Healing is one of three special events being held at the Lake Country Art Gallery during the month of February as part of the first Central Okanagan Spirit Festival, along with our current exhibit Relations. Relations features works by several 1st Nations Okanagan artists including Lee Claremont, Stephen Foster, Catherine Jameson, Janine Lott, and June Paul.
