Caught between here and glass
rippled and dimpled land(es)capes
there’s a river of blue hitting shores of tin…
where do the lines begin?
where does the quest(ion) end?
between now and the edge
edge is a fictitious place...
space of possible collision...
temporal exclusion foreboding stop gap
directional change of heart
melding place of two surfaces piquant, piercing, cutting
decisive surgical awareness colour sliced into mystery
pleating shearing time distended by distraction
ruptured defined slivered shorn
Meet our gallery mascot, Arthur Heart, Art for short. He is sitting on Oak Bay Avenue outside the Gallery rain or shine, coaxing passersby to stop, look, reflect and come inside to check out the ever changing art exhibits inside. Created by member Tanya Bub, Art is made almost entirely of found organic material. To find a name for him, the Gallery ran a naming-contest and received 75 entries by the community. The winning idea came from Oak Bay resident, Suzanne MacLeod, whose late great grandfather’s name had been Arthur. And he happened to be an artist, too. Suzanne took home the winning price - a smaller size driftwood sculpture by Tanya Bub titled “Kelp Diva”. Look for Arthur Heart on the Avenue and more driftwood creations in our small works gallery next time you come by the Gage!
