The Summerland Art Gallery is hosting an entertaining evening of art education and fun on Thursday, May 2 at 7:00. The guest of honor is Danielle Krysa, a Summerland resident who is known around the world for her connections with artists and her encouraging teaching about creativity. Krysa is the writer/curator behind the contemporary art site, The Jealous Curator (est. 2009). She has a BFA in Visual Arts from the University of Victoria and a post-grad degree in graphic design from Sheridan College in Ontario. Danielle is also a mixed media artist, and the author of four books: Creative Block, Collage, Your Inner Critic Is A Big Jerk, and most recently, A Big Important Art Book - Now with Women. Danielle will tell her story, from being an art kid in Summerland to a soul-crushing experience in art school that would ultimately shape the next few decades of her life. After working with professional and amateur artists for the last ten years, Danielle will share the aha moments she’s gathered along the way. Her 30-minute will include ideas about: 1. Unconventional Paths - there are so many ways to get to a creative life/career; the trick is not giving up along the way. 2. Self-Doubt - yes, this is a never-ending topic for creative people regardless of their success. 3. The Hustle is Real - day jobs, finding time to create, work/life balance, making money. In the course of the evening, the Gallery will display work from its Permanent Collection and unveil the latest additions to the Collection. These are two beautiful paintings by local artist Dale Matthews, and eight newly framed prints donated to the gallery by Michael Hermesh, as well as a reframed medieval-era rubbing by Ivy Mason. The evening also marks the launching of the Permanent Collection Fund to support the acquisition of new works and the restoration of old ones. The mission of the Permanent Collection is to collect and preserve a representative body of significant works of art created by artists with a connection to Summerland, thereby building a visual art legacy for the community.
