My Exhibition at Britannia Art Gallery in Vancouver

Elizabatz Jensen: Precious Stones Exhibit at Britannia

When I initially wrote this the exhibit wasn’t due to go up until the weekend and I was in the throes of planning and packing up paintings, hoping the walls would look something like this!

My plan for the Britannia Gallery started with a scaled painting featuring the extraordinary turquoise waters of Englishman River Falls and Little Qualicum Falls on Vancouver Island. Britannia wall with the extraordinary turquoise waters of Englishman River Falls and Little Qualicum FallsA reconnoiter of the gallery space revealed that the long narrow painting (11″ x 48″) invaded the seating space.  When I removed it and re-spaced the other three paintings I liked it so much better that this became my new plan. Bonus: one less painting to hang!Britannia wall with the extraordinary turquoise waters of Englishman River Falls and Little Qualicum FallsBritannia wall with a ‘Topographical’ Flint from Denmark, plus Botanical Beach and the 3 Pools at Little Qualicum Falls on Vancouver Island.Wall with European flints plus a few pebbles/rocks from home. Wall with Okanogan Desert Rock & Sage together with a mix of ‘Portraits of Pebbles‘ and the Rock Formation at Point No Point on Vancouver Island. Then there’s the 6 foot long display case, and I’m still wrestling with that, especially the visible from both sides part. I expect it will be mostly photos of the inspiration for these paintings.Britannia Display CaseMore of Frank’s Photo Challenge: Rectangles (or in my case: Arranging Rectangles).
