Comox art gallery goes down The Winding Path with next show

Wire sculptures by local artist CG Swanson will be featured at the Pearl Ellis Gallery in Comox from June 25 to July 13.

In her first solo exhibition, CG Swanson brings you on a journey down The Winding Path, exploring the imaginative, relational, and reflective opportunities trees provide. Come, picnic under the flowing willow while children laugh and play. Let the maple take your mind beyond the past and future, into something so vast you are everywhere and nowhere, so big you lose yourself completely. Be inspired by the tree that has cast off boundaries and limitations, living a situational reality in an unexpected way. Come, walk this winding path, imagine and explore.

A life-long artist and lover of trees, CG began her focus on wire sculpture in 2017 when she wanted to make a three-dimensional family tree that would be enjoyed for generations as a family heirloom. Through the process, she discovered a passion for wire and its ability to create the expressive details of the trees she has loved since childhood.

A reception will be held on Saturday, June 29 from 1-3 p.m. with the artist in attendance.

The Pearl Ellis Gallery is located at 1729 Comox Ave. in Comox. Open Tuesday-Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm, closed Sunday/Monday. Admission is free.
