Art at Council June 13, 2017 - Zuzana Driediger | Eye Contact
To help celebrate the Canada’s 150, a touring exhibition organized by Parks Canada and the Revelstoke Visual Arts Society, titled Art in the Park will be making its way through BC and Alberta. On June 15 the exhibition will open at the Port Moody Arts Centre and will be on display until July 13. This travelling art show provides an opportunity for many Canadians to connect with the natural and cultural history of Glacier National Park.
The exhibition is made up of 12 Canadian artists that spent four days in the historic Rogers Pass area of Glacier National Park in August 2016. The artists explored the stunning landscapes and rich history of the area, photographing, sketching, and depending on their medium, producing final works of art.
Tonight’s artwork is by Zuzana Driediger from Revelstoke, BC. She created an acrylic on canvas titled Eye Contact. Zuzana is a published illustrator and talented carver, as well as a Canada Parks staff member. She turns everything she touches into art and has created many whimsical illustrations for Mount Revelstoke and Glacier national parks. She is excited to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary by sharing the beauty of Canada’s special places through art.
