New exhibits, programs on offer at Kamloops Art Gallery

Two new exhibits recently began showing at the Kamloops Art Gallery.

In the central gallery, find Presences by Samuel Roy-Bois, featuring sculpture, photography and installation. The exhibit explores the “relational network of objects and their historical resonance” and asks whether we are making things or things are making us.

Roy-Bois is from Quebec City but based in the Okanagan, where he teaches in the faculty of creative and critical studies at UBC Okanagan.

His work will be on display until June 29.

Meanwhile in The Cube, find Four Oldest Daughters by Darlene Kalynka.

The Kamloops-based artist has created large etchings of life-size scythes as stand-ins of each of the oldest daughters in three generations of her family.

The scythe has a literal history for Kalynka, whose family had farms in their home country of Ukraine and in northern Saskatchewan, where they immigrated, but it also serves as a symbol for the sacrifices made in order to care for family and fulfill responsibilities.

Four Oldest Daughters shows until June 29.

Other upcoming KAG events include baby-friendly art-making on April 25 (downtown library) and April 26 (North Shore library), ladies’ drawing night on May 1 and Drink and Draw on May 8 at Red Collar Brewing.

The KAG will also host its annual general meeting on April 24.
