In, Above, and Around
Rick Cepella is a painter, art instructor and cartoonist living in Powell River, BC. His paintings are expressive reactions to the wild landscape, as well as the human form.
Decades of outdoor activities, 12 years of work as a biological surveyor and countless hours of field drawing and painting in the rugged backcountry of western Canada continue to shape his work.

Boundary Artisan Association
Magnus Opus – Hocus Pocus
The Boundary Artisan Association represents professional and semi-professional artists and artisans living and creating their work from Christina Lake to Bridesville and Beaverdell.
With a membership of 15 to 20 active artists and artisans each year, the association offers professional development workshops, as well as an annual studio tour and Christmas Faire.
Our members include fibre artists, wood workers, painters, potters, glass artists and photographers.
This is the first exhibition by Boundary Artisan Association members as a group. Some works are practical and others whimsical but each is an original piece, designed and created by the artist and artisan in our region.
