Three new exhibits open at gallery

This summer, gallery 2 features local artist Leora Gesser, photographer Bob Morton and fabric artist Joanne Circle.

This summer gallery 2 is featuring local artist Leora Gesser (Boundaries) and photographer Bob Morton (A Photographer’s Eye) as well as fabric artist Joanne Circle (Murmuration) of Duncan, B.C.

Many in our community will know Leora from her time teaching at Selkirk College. After retiring Leora went on to study painting and drawing at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary.

Bob Morton’s interest in photography began during his career as an architect but, since his retirement, has become an important means by which he continues to explore architecture and landscapes around the world.

The exhibition of felted and mixed media works by well-known West Coast fabric artist Joanne Circle is guest curated by Maggie Tchir of Nelson.

The opening reception for Murmurations, Boundaries and A Photographer’s Eye will be held on Saturday, July 19 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and the three exhibitions will run until Sept. 20. Please come to gallery 2 and bring your friends to view this unique selection of works and to meet the artists.
