Deer Lake Gallery is exploring the world of landscapes in its next exhibition.
Horizons, which opens Feb. 16 and runs until March 9, features work by Deb Chaney, Jan Rankin, Wolfgang Vogt and Ronald Watt. An opening reception is on Saturday, Feb. 16 from noon to 4 p.m.
The exhibition showcases a diverse selection of artists’ perspectives on the idea of landscape, featuring what a press release bills as a “rich and varied survey of the natural world.”
Chaney is a contemporary abstract artist, named by Daily Hive (formerly VanCity Buzz) and Culture Trip as one of the top 10 contemporary artists to watch in Vancouver. Her artwork has been featured in Style at Home magazine, the Georgia Straight, and in film and television.
For Rankin, the infinite and ever-changing sky serves as inspiration. This exhibition features Rankin’s Dark Night Skies series of auroras and galaxies.
Vogt, meanwhile, is a glass artist, who has been fascinated with the art of glass since visiting a glass studio many years ago. Vogt’s sculptures are in natural and abstract forms, with varying colours to bring to life the different seasons.
Watt, originally from South Africa, now lives in North Vancouver. He draws inspiration from the South African Highveld and Karoo regions, with vast plains and big skies.
