Hope Arts Gallery brings in new show with new member

“All God’s Creations” by Eva Heller will show during August

Although July’s not yet half over, the Hope Arts Gallery is excited to announce new member, Eva Heller, is presenting a month-long show called “All God’s Creation” in the Backroom in August.

A 1970 graduate of the Master’s program of Fine Arts of Lodz, Poland, Heller’s works are of animals, plants and people. She experiments with unique techniques, mixing acrylic and pastel on canvas, linen and wood. She also draws graphic images.

For 10 years in Poland, Eva worked designing carpets, but also painted and showed her work as a member of the European Fine Arts Association.

Upon immigration to Canada, she worked as a dental technician for 15 years, then as a graphic artist at Big White ski area, doing their ads, brochures and signs.

During all this, she managed to raise a family and continued to paint. She now has two websites, www.petart.ca and www.evaheller.ca: she takes commissions for people’s pets on the first site, the second is for the sales of her own creations.

She hopes her strong appreciation for the earth and environment comes through in her pieces. Heller is moved, too, by the rich native culture of North America, its long history of art and the recent acknowledgement of that by government support.

Please visit “All God’s Creations” at the Hope Arts Gallery (349 Fort St.) for the exhibit opening on Saturday, Aug. 3, from 2 til 4 p.m., where you will have the opportunity to meet the artist and enjoy refreshments.

The Gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is operated by the Hope and District Arts Council and run by volunteers. For information, call 604-869-3400 or email www.HopeDistrictArtsCouncil@gmail.com.
