David Robinson will be our Artist in Residence later this year.

David Robinson is a highly respected Vancouver mixed media artist, working in ceramic, wood, metal, and gypsum. His sculptures depict stories from the earth, from folklore and mythology; often in conversation with modern subcultures. He holds a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design, is an arts educator at The Shadbolt Centre for the Arts, and works from his Chinatown studio. His sculpture and installation works are exhibited in galleries in Canada and internationally. Robinson’s work is often incorporated in St. Marie Art + Design and Good Animal design group. He is currently assisting with Artist Link Leisure on this Summer 2015 installation for The Glastonbury Music Festival’s Shangri-La Interaction and Public Art Installation (

He believes through creating and altering examples of natural beauty, he is both
exploring & envisioning the divinity of the organic world.


Robinson’s great great great grandfather was the noted explorer and aristocrat John Fall Allison, of Allison’s Pass, British Columbia. He was the first European settler in the area and the founder of Vermillian Bluffs, which later became the town of Princeton, BC. Around 1920, John Falls son, the youngest of fourteen children, Alfred Stratton Allison took this white-tailed deer down, while hunting with his brothers, near the Similkameen Valley River. The rack was mounted at the Princeton Homestead, where it had remained as a prized family heirloom for almost a Century.

The sculpture was recreated from a 15 piece plaster mould, which was constructed over two years. Robinson was very enthusiastic to work with this treasured family artefact.  Honoured to beautify this iconic animal form by: “altering, queering and exhibiting the work with exaltation and representation of fragile beauty”.

David Stevens

 Dave Stevens is an accomplished and prolific artist, educator & activist. From Treewind, his studio in Delta, Dave produces drawings, paintings, illustrations & sculptures. From the vibrant and brilliant Arbutus series:

Arbutus Grove - David Stevens
 Arbutus Grove
Oil on canvas. 48″x24″
 The artist says:

It contains some of the elements of a Canadian landscape, the trees in the foreground and the sky, but it is simplified to allow for different responses. Removing the leaves, berries and bark of the trees leaves them open to other interpretations, such as arteries, veins and capillaries. So what’s outside in the landscape could also be what’s carried inside each of us as human beings.

We were lucky to have Dave as Artist in Residence in November.

Anni Sayers

Anni Sayers currently studies and lives in London. The images for the exhibition were made using ink and water by wetting areas of the paper, dropping ink on randomly and then seeing what shapes emerge. Once the ink dries Anni works on top of it, picking out particular figures and adding narratives. The drawings are influenced by Anni’s surroundings; the artefacts, characters and moods feed into the abstract scenes created. Anything from her magination is inspired by things that Anni does and sees and often by something as simple as a texture of a material, or the posture of a passerby that will initiate a piece of work. Anni says:

‘For the simple reason that the ink and water is unpredictable I find working in this way engaging. The fact that I don’t know what the outcome will be until I start making is a process that keeps me pleasantly surprised’..

We were happy & honoured that Anni was our first Artist in Residency in 2014 and showed her work in the gallery August 9-10.
