Sculptures by Rolan Gatin

The Nanaimo Art Gallery, downtown at 150 Commercial Street, is presenting the Maple Sugar Festival Exhibition featuring three notable artists from February 18 to March 13, 2010.

Rolan Gatin: Born in small-town Saskatchewan and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Gatin moved to Salt Spring Island, British Columbia in 1999 and began his sculpting career upon arrival. His work reflects human sensuality, geometric simplicity/complexity, and curvilinear elements without conforming exclusively to any particular style.

Carmen Mongeau: “I respond to the acrylic medium on canvas as it suits my impulsive nature and need to work intuitively and quickly, bringing in assorted other mediums and materials.”

Rachel Vadeboncoeur: “Becoming an artist, or simply a person that finds joy in exploring their creativity is an important step in anyone’s life…. It must be a moving experience, both for the creator and the viewer. It’s nourishment for the human soul, a music for the eye.”

An opening reception catered by 24 Carrot Catering with entertainment by Tunefully Yours takes place on Thursday, February 18, 2010, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. For more information please call 250-754-1750.
