‘Not An Abstract Life’ Gene Emil Carlson Retrospective Nov 6 – Nov 28th, 2009.
DRAW GALLERY invites you to join us in celebrating with the Dennison Family at their Reception for Gene Carlson on First Friday Nov 6th, from 6 – 8 pm.

Presented by Pamela and Michael Dennison, these amazing sculptured paintings are a spectacular legacy left by Gene at his passing on January 6th of 2008.

Acrylic/mixed media, some of the elements reflected in Gene’s art are the abstract, the geometric and certain of the traits of the South American and African primitive art.

In his work, Gene had the talent of being able to transform three different works of art into the same idea. Another of his obsessions was the contrast between primitive and modern, and his engravings in particular were of an experimental nature – where abstract geometrical forms were sprinkled with a touch of humour. Pamela and Michael plan to donate all the sales of Geno’s paintings to benefit our Quadra Neighbours-in-Need.

DRAW Gallery invites the public to enjoy and savor the creative spirit of the artists who live amongst us. The Gallery stands by its commitment to bring community Westcoast Art in an intimate setting. Hours are Thurs thru Sat 12 - 6 pm and we are located on Quadra Island at Village Square, in the rear – just follow the signs. Drop by and see the show next time you are at the Square. Openings First Fridays. Call 285-2008 for more info.
