Upcoming Exhibition and Workshop with Rachelle Chinnery



Portrait of an Ocean: A Body of Words is an exhibition of sculptural vessels and written word. Rachelle’s sculptural work is informed by the physical nature and emotional effects of the ocean environment. A chapbook of poetry and photography will accompany the exhibition.

Where: Campbell River Art Gallery, Vancouver Island, BC
When: July 6 – August 17, 2012
Sponsored by the Hornby Island Arts Council


The workshop will will run for two days at the Campbell River Community Center (July 7 & 8 from 10 โ€“ 4) and will include demonstrations as well as hands-on work. โ€Finding an Aestheticโ€ is the topic and will involve a little expressive writing, a lot of talk about clay, and much more hands on clay. There will be a slide show and, if there’s time, a short tour of the show, which is a block away from the community center hosting the workshop. To register, call: 250-286-1161
