The six-inch-tall copper wire tree at left was made by Kamloops artist Twyla-Lea Jensen, who also creates Cremains pieces, such as the one shown above — a blue pendant with silver chain. Cremains are coloured resin pendants, rings and any other piece that contain ashes of loved ones.
Welcome to the weekly Kamloops Art Page.
With the COVID-19 pandemic upending society — socially and economically and dominating news for the foreseeable future — we understand pandemic fatigue can set in for even the most ardent followers of current events.
While continuing to cover all pandemic and non-pandemic-related news, KTW has also worked hard at featuring positive stories from the crisis, tales that capture the essence of humanity, be it volunteers sewing thousands of masks for health-care workers or musicians offering up weekly free concerts online.
This page is an attempt by KTW to bring some colour into the lives of our readers viaartwork created locally.
We hope to, on a weekly basis, use this page to showcase works by various Kamloops artists, with between one and three pieces displayed.
Thanks for reading Kamloops This Week and we hope this page can help ease the stress of this uncertain era in which we are living.
