Quesnel Events Canada
Judith joins her fellow members of Quesnel's eclectic group of Thursday Painters and their Invited Guests in an exploration of personal identity using different materials, methods, and perspectives.
The artists seek to answer the inquiry "Who Am I?" in new and interesting ways. Art works range from personal portrayals to the exploration of broader scenarios.
Visitors to the Quesnel Art Gallery will be challenged and delighted by the possibilities on exhibit.
Possibilities is exhibited at the WILLIAMS LAKE STATION HOUSE GALLERY in the main gallery.
Emerging from her fascination with the Earth in all its forms, Judith DesBrisay’s Possibilities series grew out of her South American experiences. The paintings are, however, based upon sketches made of the luxuriant growth in her Central Interior garden. The Possibilities paintings reflect Judith’s delight when she is immersed in “nature”, a joy made more intense by the imminent threats to its beauty.
The organic shapes of the Possibilites paintings, both monochromatic and vivid in hue, depict the forms, colours, and light ablaze in our lives. The paintings are a celebration of life!
Connor Kenney is exhibiting his "Woman Inside the Man" life sized sculptures in the upstairs gallery concurrent with Judith's paintings on display in the main gallery.
This is the 11th annual exhibition of works wherein artists respond to environmental issues. The 2016 title invites interpretation of “lost nature, human habits or occupations, activities, etc.” Organizer, Jovanka Djordjevich states "As always, consider the medium and the size as part of the message". Opening celebration: Tuesday, April 5, 2016, at 7 p.m.

WHO WILL LISTEN TO OUR STORIES? May 3- June 22, 2013
This post is about an important art exhibit "Who Will Listen to Our Stories?" which revolves around an extensive selection of wonderful art works by Sylvia Regehr Graham : Quesnel artist, forester and friend.
Sylvia's sister, Dorothy, has worked with Bill Graham, Sylvia's husband, and other friends plus key persons in Winnipeg to present the exhibit: opening May 3, 2013. The exhibit [May 3 until June 22, 2013] will include art works created by participants of the Art Therapy Program at Cancer Care Manitoba. It will be presented at the Mennonite Heritage Centre Gallery.
Judith DesBrisay, Brent Bukowski and Destanne Norris, have been independently creating art works that explore themes relating to water conservation and global warming. Penticton Art Gallery curator, Paul Crawford, recognized the common threads in these works and invited the threesome to present an eclectic exhibit, Ebb & Flow, at the vibrant Okanagan gallery.
Many events impact the life of the arts community and its vibrant members.
