9th Annual Artisan Christmas Faire @ Gallery 2 Art & Heritage Centre
Dec 4 – Dec 5 all-day

artisan faire posterThere’s no show like it anywhere in BC. It’s an intimate part of Boundary culture.  On Friday December 4th and Saturday December 5 artisans converge at gallery 2 in the historic courthouse for the 9th Annual Artisan Christmas Faire.  Surrounded by stained glass, wood, and the arts, these artisans will bring their best work from the last 12 months, to give you a chance to browse their merchandise, and shop for your holiday gift giving.

You’ll discover beautiful, handmade artisan crafts, while listening to the melodious songs from the harp, played skillfully by Jenn Fenn.   Or have a seat in the bistro, right in the gallery, and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, Christmas baking, or even have your lunch.

When you visit gallery 2 on December 4th and 5th, you’ll find the artists on both floors – this year’s show will be full to capacity.  The holiday joy and comfort is brimming over, ready for you to enjoy on the first weekend in December.  The selection will be great with PotterBees’ Sandy-Jo Lewis, jewellery and stained glass, by Tracey Jory, and Alex Semenoff’s distinctive wood turnings. New to the show will be Lana Halisheff with her handmade, natural skincare products, John and Leda Fair of Midway with crafted handmade bird houses and canes, Fran Etson with her fabric creations and quilts. Jill Gunnarson, Paper Garden and Kathryn Hankey are back from previous shows and more…

This year you just might leave the gallery with more artwork than you planned. An exciting new feature will have you coming back for more.  When you make a purchase from one of the artisans or from the gallery gift shop, you’ll receive a draw ticket.  Put one part of the ticket in the draw for the hour, and you enter for a chance to win the door prize – your pick of any of the artisan crafts offered for the draw.  You’ll have a chance to win every hour, so be sure and stick around and enjoy the show and come back on Saturday.  You could take home a special piece of Boundary culture, for free.

We still have a couple of spots left if anyone is interested in setting up a booth. Please download the registration form, fill it out, bring it in or drop it by the gallery. Payment is required upon registering.

First Opening Reception of 2016 @ Gallery 2 Art & Heritage Centre
Feb 6 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Gallery 2 is excited to be presenting the first two exhibitions of 2016. Local(i)ty 2, curated by Carin Covin, presents the work of artists Nora Curiston, Laura Widmer and Brenda Feist in the Reid and West Galleries. This ambitious exhibition includes work in diverse media from all three artists that explore connection to place, with particular emphasis on artists working in smaller urban centres, as Carin Covin explains: “The title Local(i)ty 2 refers to the location that these artists work from, here in Grand Forks and in Kelowna. In a smaller centre, do we see a difference in the integrity of what art can be seen as today, how it is produced and how it can be given an audience…”  Curiston continues her working methodology of pairing the physical and the intangible, with a particular emphasis on the use of wind. Feist investigates the use of metaphor and social mapping of the individual through physical work that includes the use of blackboards and theatre-style sets. Widmer, a printmaker, has begun to make her own paper that she incorporates into her practice in processes that becomes her metaphor for the search for the ultimate meaning of life

Shunga (Pictures of Spring), an exhibition of work by noted Japanese Canadian artist Noboru Sawai, will be in the east gallery. Sawai has devoted his printmaking practice to making sensuous, erotic art since the 1970s. As with his printmaking techniques, Sawai draws his imagery from diverse sources including the Kama Sutra, traditional Japanese woodblock print styles and the often erotic imagery of The Pillow Book, as well as images from Inuit legends. Be sure to come and witness the amazing work of Noboru Sawai.

Gallery 2 is pleased to be presenting a new travelling heritage exhibit from The Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre (NNMCC), A Call for Justice – Fighting for Japanese Canadian Redress (1977-1988) inspired by the 25th Anniversary of the signing of the Redress agreement. Please keep watch for this exhibit, which will be open from March-June
Join us for the first Opening Reception of the year on Saturday, February 6, 2016 from 1-3pm for Local(i)ty 2 and Shunga.

The 17th  BC Arts & Culture Week April 15-30, 2016.  Spring is here and so is the BC Arts & Culture Week sponsored by the Boundary District Arts Council and gallery 2. We are proud to host the 17th consecutive Arts Week as it is one of the most elaborate display of arts and crafts in the Boundary. The history of this event goes back to June 1979 called ‘Spring Thing’ when the Grand Forks Arts Society had a display in conjunction with Canada Week. In March 1981 it continued in Perley School as the ‘Spring Arts Festival’ along with an evening concert. In May ‘84 ‘Spring Thing’ was expanded and held in the Boundary Mall with over 200 displays. This encouraged the Society to hold Spring Thing events in the Art Gallery in 1985, 1986 and 1987 but due to a lack of a coordinator and funding the last one was held in 1991.

In 1999 the Assembly of BC Arts Councils announced they would help fund local Arts Councils if they participated in an Arts Week during their specified time, the last week in April. The Grand Forks Arts Council with the help from the Grand Forks Art Gallery revived the event and have continued annually with changes in names and buildings.

We are inviting all art and crafts people to enter their exhibits. Application forms are available at gallery 2.
A Gala Performance of BDAC musicians and dancers was held on Thursday, April 21st in the Grand Forks Secondary School auditorium.
Reception and entertainment for all from 1 to 3pm on Saturday, April 23rd at gallery 2.
We are inviting everyone to participate, enjoy and celebrate the ‘ARTS’ in Learning and in Life.

For more information phone Susan Hals at  250 442 2942 or Wendy Butterfield at P1070555 250 442 2211 or email admin@g2gf.ca

Opening Reception @ Gallery 2
Feb 4 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Gallery 2 is excited to present the first exhibitions of 2017 featuring two well-known artists Debra Rushfeldt from Nakusp, BC and Saskatchewan born Jason Baerg
Rushfeldt drawings are richly detailed taking “ordinary objects, that which allows us to move outside the ordinary.”  Her work is deeply personal she says “The subject matter of these works belongs to my personal world, to my emotional bond with my environment, and to my awareness of the significance of my “ground” not only as physical, but as idea and emotion.” Rushfeldt  will be here for the closing of her exhibition and will be giving an artist talk on April 8th, please keep watch for details.
Baerg is an indigenous curator, educator and visual artist. “Creatively, as a visual artist, he pushes new boundaries in digital interventions in drawing, painting and new media installation…” This exhibition entitled “Ohcistikosiwak” which means “The Spruce Tree Provides Shelter from Rain”, is part of a series called “Oskayi Askiy which means the new world in Cree…” This project is translated through, “…The sky, Animals and Land are processed through technology and are translated as flesh, fauna and playful apparatus. As working methodology, this space acts as an exploratory arena to consider solutions to the social and environmental calamities at hand…”
Curator Ted Fogg has chosen several pieces from the Permanent Collection and says “This small exhibition of selected works from our Permanent Collection is not based only on curatorial criteria. They are works that first and foremost made me pause and stop to look and question; that impacted me viscerally. Works by artists that have enriched my life experience whether by their complexity, subject matter, technical mastery, or other influences….“
Please join us for the first Opening Reception of the year on Saturday, February 4, 2017 from 1-3pm

Wineology 101 @ Gallery 2 Art & Heritage Centre
Mar 10 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

On Friday, March 10 at 7pm we will be hosting our first “Wineology 101″
Join us for an evening of tasting wines and learning the art of wine tasting.
The world of wine can be intimidating. You know what you like and don’t like but it’s difficult to substantiate the differences and express why. Those who have been discovering wine for some time, the experience has just served to increase their hunger for more knowledge.
Through the Gallery’s annual Wine Tasting fundraiser we’ve heard frequently that patrons want more education but the festive atmosphere of the evening is not the optimal time to absorb knowledge. It’s more a time to share a glass with friends.
Here is an opportunity to learn more about the intricacies of wine. Winology 101 led by instructor Moss Scheurkogel of Intersection Winery is an excellent class for beginners as well as enthusiasts. The evening is casual, informative and above all else fun. Whether you bring your partner for date night, girls night out or just a means to pass the last of the winter nights, by the end of the evening you will have a greater appreciation for the different components and features that make each wine varietal unique.
Tickets are on sale Feb 7th in the Gift Shop. There is a limit so make your decision early to raise your wine awareness.
