As a visual artist, Allan Harding MacKay has served as a war artist with the Canadian Department of National Defense on two occasions, first in Somalia in 1993 and again in July 2002 when he was invited by the Department of National Defence to participate in Operation Apollo, a pilot project for the newly minted Canadian Forces Artists Program in Afghanistan. Once on the ground at Kandahar Airfield he had only four days to gather all his support material only being able to travel in the area surrounding Kandahar and its immediate environs.
Since the fall of the Taliban in 2001, contemporary art has seen a remarkable resurgence in Afghanistan and since 2009, international funding for the arts has flowed into Afghanistan from the United States and Europe. In 2012, Kabul-based artist Aman Mojadidi curated a 2012 Documenta exhibit in Kabul which showcased 12 contemporary Afghan artists whose work includes digital photography, textiles, abstract painting, filmmaking and mixed media.
The Penticton Art Gallery is proud to once again partner with The Meadowlark Nature Festival which celebrates the amazing biodiversity of the Okanagan Similkameen.
This annual exhibition completes the artistic cycle taking that which is created behind closed doors out on display for the world to see, proving invaluable insight into the world, interests and concerns of all those whose works are laid out before us. This is also an acknowledgement of the creativity, vision and inspiration behind the art teachers and their ability to have their students articulate their thoughts and ideas.
This year’s auction is truly going to be one for the history books with items up for offer that are of national importance. Items are still being collected weekly and they will be added to the exhibition display leading up to the full auction preview and exhibition which will be hung and on display in the gallery by Thursday June 18th.
