Jack Duckworth

Jul 22, 2021 - Aug 14, 2021

Nanaimo artist featured at Pearl Ellis Gallery

Jack Duckworth’s interest and talent for art emerged naturally in his younger years living in Duncan, BC. Family and vocation brought an extended hiatus while serving pastoral and campus Christian missions on Vancouver Island and in Winnipeg, and teaching practical theology modules overseas in Ukraine, Armenia, Amsterdam, and Haiti.

Jan 14, 2021 - Jan 30, 2021

Fibre Art Voices is a small, spirited group of forward-thinking visual artists, who support and encourage one another in expressing a creative voice through the use of fibre. Diverse artistic backgrounds and a passion for textiles enable the collective to work with an extensive variety of mediums and techniques to create individual stories, rich in design, colour and texture. Through love of textiles they challenge each other, individually and as a group, and share the energy and inspiration gained from living in the breathtaking West Coast environment. The challenge for this exhibition was for each artist to use an acrylic pour as inspiration to create a textile/fibre art piece, measuring 18 inches by 24 inches. Smaller complementary pieces could also accompany the artist’s main entry. …
