The Lake Country Art Gallery is pleased present Diversity in Drawing, an exhibition curated by guest curators Jim Kalnin and Destanne Norris. This exhibition, which runs from now until November 13, 2011, will present the the drawings and cross-disciplinary work of nine Okanagan-based artists; Renee Burgess, Carin Covin, Wanda Lock, Heidi Maddess, Shauna Oddleifson, Gary Pearson, Amber Powell, Tia-Maria Soroskie and Jim Tanner.

The work of these nine artists consists of diverse approaches to drawing, ranging from detailed, autobiographic charcoal renderings with historical references; to wall drawings and three-dimensional floor drawings that explore human energy; to oil or acrylic works on paper; to transparent embroidered abstract drawings. “Diversity in Drawing” is an exhibition that demonstrates that drawing does not exist solely as a separate art discipline; that it exists everywhere in our daily lives.

The public is invited to drop by the gallery on November 2 for an open studio session with Kalnin. Then on November 5 Soroskie hosts a drawing/markmaking workshop.
