A new art gallery and studio will be opening September 4, 2020 in the atrium of the Townsite Market at 5831 Ash street, directly opposite Townsite Brewery.
Artists and co-curators David Molyneaux and Robert Mackle are delighted to join the exciting cultural scene in Powell Rivers’ town site with an exhibit of new photographic works and copper sculptures inspired by the crucible theme.
Crucible by definition : a severe test or trial or an extremely challenging experience in which essential values and crucial actions are taken. This figurative sense of the crucible is based on the literal meaning of the word: a heat-resistant vessel used to melt metals.
We are living in crucible times. Our individual and collective behaviour and values are being tested, realigned and distilled. It is our intention that the exhibitions and events taking place at Crucible Gallery will explore this shift to a new paradigm.
We will be calling for artist submissions and plan a diverse series of weekly performances and discussions including music, spoken word, dance and thought provoking issues alongside intriguing new artwork.
In these pandemic times we ask those visiting our gallery to wash their hands, practice physical distancing and come in “maskarade”.
Stay safe and be considerate of others.
