Affordable art at Key City Theatre
The Key City Theatre is hosting its annual affordable art show from November 25 to December 20th in the Key Gallery. This event provides local artists with the opportunity to showcase in our gallery 3 pieces of art that are priced under $300 each. 26 artists from across the East Kootenays have submitted more than 70 pieces in a wide variety of styles.
Many popular artists have contributed their works for the Affordable Art show at Key City Theatre. Cranbrook photographer Brandon Peters has 2 canvas prints of his stunning photos of Mt. Rundle and Kootenay National Park. Marilyn Oliver’s use of heat and wax in her 2 pieces of encaustic art are unique and vibrant. We have a wide variety of acrylic works from local artists including Jim Robertson, Wolfgang Kunze, Paula Cravens, Elizabeth Stuart and Val MacPhee. Steen Jorgensen acrylic painting “Three Pig’s” has a similar feel to C. M. Coolidge’s “Dogs Playing Poker” paintings and shouldn’t be missed. Dave Weir, a local wood carver, has a piece that is hauntingly similar to “Treebeard” of the Ents from J.R.R Tolkien’s classic series Lord of the Rings. Additional works from Darlene Purnell (fibre), Sharon Routley (oil and canvas), Dorial Davis (mixed media), Yoki (oil pastels) and many more can be viewed hanging on the Key Gallery wall until December 20th.
The Key City Theatre will also be holding an Affordable Art Reception and Christmas Craft Fair on December 14th from 11:00 to 4:00 pm. The reception will include a meet and greet with local artists, live music, 20 local crafters and artisans tables, refreshments and door prizes. Admission is free and provides a great opportunity to purchase some last minute gifts and stocking stuffers from local artisans. For more information contact Nick at 250 426 7006.
