District Library Gallery

Now Showing at the District Library Gallery on the 2nd Floor of Lynn Valley Library 

Lynda Fownes: Windfall | March 23 – May 24, 2022

North Van Arts presents an exhibition by Lynda Fownes as part of its Art in the Community Programme.

Lynda Fownes’ earlier work focused on soft sculpture and fibre art. In recent years she has returned to the idea of exploring patterns and textures—in both choice of subject and use of acrylic media. For this show, she takes her inspiration from tree bark. Lynda started the series a few years ago when a friend came across some birch trees that had come down in a windstorm. He was taken by just how beautiful the bark was and couldn’t resist delivering a pile of torn-off pieces to Lynda thinking she would somehow use them.  She was indeed drawn to the wealth of pattern variation, such as old/young bark and inside/outside layers, that nature provides. In between other paintings, she returned to this series over the next two years, resulting in the current collection.
