Dave Hutchinson's photographic work

Shared Gifts opens at Gallery West

Joan Taylor and Dave Hutchinson combine art for gallery show

Two artists will share Gallery West at South Shore Gallery Nov. 3 -26 for Shared Gifts.

Well known local textile artist Joan Taylor will be joined by photographer Dave Hutchison from Sidney.  Both artists have a love of the natural world, the flora and fauna, the rare and remote, and the beauty close to home.

Taylor, a retired medical doctor who raised seven children and has lived near Sheringham Point for over 20 years, fearlessly translates ideas and images to fabric and thread with her sewing machine. By dyeing silks and layering them, then free motion overstitching with infinite thread changes she creates richly textured artworks.

Hutchinson photographs landscapes, birds, and bears of B. C.’s West Coast.  He has a special interest in photographing animals and birds in their natural habitat and has been in the right place at the right time to capture images of the Kermode Spirit Bear as well as more accessible species.  His fine art photography is produced on paper, canvas, aluminum and acrylic.

“I think the texture of Joan’s work contrasted with the photographs Dave will bring are going to make an interesting show,” gallery owner Elizabeth Tanner said.

An artist’s reception will be held Nov. 3 from 3 to 5 p.m. with both artists in attendance.

 

Gallery hours are Mon-Fri 10-5 p.m.
