Celebrating Fibre


Speaking about "Celebration of Fibre":

" December 8

In 1906 Santiago Ramón y Cajal received the Nobel Prize in Medicine.
He wanted to be a painter.
His father would not let him, so he had to become the greatest Spanish Scientist of all time.
He got his revenge by sketching his discoveries. His drawings of the brain were at par with Miró and Klee:"The garden of neurology sparks incomparable artistic emotions" he liked to say.
He enjoyed exploring the mysteries of the nervous system, but loved drawing even more.
And what he loved most of all was saying out loud whatever was on his mind, well aware it would make him enemies than friends.
Sometimes he would ask in surprise, "You have no enemies? How can it be? Did you never tell the truth or stand up for justice?"

OTB month at the White Rock Museum and Archives

OTB Exhibit at WRMA (White Rock Museum and Archives, Marine Drive):
The exhibition explores the development of White Rock as a Canadian city, but emphasizes little known local stories about several communities present in White Rock over the last 150 years. Among these stories, the exhibition explores the role of Japanese silk manufacture, and the impact it had on Great Northern Railway (GNR) which served White Rock. GNR was the leading ground transporter of raw silk during the 1920s. When the popularity of silk dropped off in the 1930s, the velocity of travel became an effective marketing tool for Great Northern to a White Rock audience.

This exhibition illustrates how silk is made through our “Stages of Silk” kiosk, using objects and historic images of Japanese silk manufacturing.

"Joy Flags" afternoon @ WR Library

#OTBWR's: Barbara Carscaden / Wood Diamonds and Other Eccentricities @ WR Community Centre Gallery



"David" Barbara Carscaden
12” X 12” Acrylic- Mixed 
I painted this composition using our son Dave as the inspiration. When Dave was 8 years old he played soccer (position left defense). I decided to incorporate our backyard garden including the bench he used to sit on. I love the hydrangeas and mini bamboo tree in our backyard as well as the impatiens planted in our flower pots.

#OTBWR's: Katie Sun / Wood Diamonds and Other Eccentricities @ WR Community Centre Gallery



The Colourful Eagle" 10"x10"


10"x10" Mixed Media
"I used about one month to complete my painting, and the name of the painting is The Colorful Eagle. The technique of my painting is my brush strokes. My brush strokes are really interesting, for the background I patted the brush on the canvas to make that rough background, and I also got some feathers from the dollar store and just kind of spread it around."

#OTBWR's: Kat Siemens / Wood Diamonds and Other Eccentricities @ WR Community Centre Gallery


"Countess Aine" $595
Frame: 23" by 19"

Countess Aine is a Seelie court faery. Her name means splendour, radiance, and brilliance. In certain parts of Ireland, she is considered a faery queen. Her head is hand-sculpted from polymer clay, and her hair is hand carded wool that was dip dyed. She has a fabric body, adorned in original, handmade clothing. She is entirely handmade, from head to toe.

Kat Siemens
10” x 10”
Mixed media on canvas

This is my version of  young Jesus.
influenced by ancient Celtic illustrations and traditional religious icons, the collage consists of paper, gold leaf, graphite drawing and coloured pencil.



Elephant Dance”                     $975.-
Acrylic on canvas, vintage frame
41" X 45"                                           

When I fist saw the frame I immediately knew I wanted to paint something exotic, but didn't quite know what. While out for dinner at an Indian restaurant I saw some marvellous old prints from Rajasthan, which supplied my initial inspiration;  Utilizing colours evocative of India it resulted in this vibrant fusion of modern and old motifs.





“Undines” 
Kat SiemensAcrylic on canvas 8" X 10"         $295.-               
Triptych    3” X 30”                                           $800.-          
I have always loved the Fae, mystical creatures of the realms beyond
the veil. In this series I have painted three undines (also known as
mermaids). Since they are considered elementals of the water, and
inhabit all of the seven seas, one lovely lady is depicted as a Celt,
while another is Spanish and the third is from East Asia.

Frames: 9" by 11"                    $125.- 
Triptych                                    $350
