Featured Artist – Krystyna Laycraft

Krystyna Laycraft is our Featured Artist for April.  Krystyna’s artistic journey started twenty-seven years ago when one of her friends invited Krystyna to a series of her lectures on the fundamental arts.  As a result, she found something special that changed her life. She fell in love with the process of being by herself in nature, deeply observing and expressing its beauty by applying pastels and acrylics.  Later her interest expanded into conceptual art and writing in which Krystyna often applied her knowledge of chaos theory.

She has published seven books on creativity, emotions, and human development.

For more information on her art and writing, you can view:

About Us

We are a gallery in Enderby, BC

Who We Are

History

In 2012 a group of local artists came together with the vision of forming an art gallery in Enderby. With some fundraising and a start-up grant of $3000 from the Enderby and District Arts Council the newly formed Enderby Artists’ Initiative opened the doors of the Courtyard Gallery in April of 2013. In 2020 the Courtyard Gallery ceased to operate under the Enderby Artists’ Initiative as a result of a merger with the Enderby and District Arts Council (EDAC) and now operates as a permanent standing committee of EDAC.

Purpose

The purpose of the Courtyard Gallery is to operate, on a nonprofit basis, an artist run gallery which provides opportunity for local artists to exhibit and sell their works.

We are an eclectic group, as you will see in our gallery. We display paintings in a variety of media; handcrafted jewelry; pottery; wood carvings; sculptures; weaving, books, and fibre art fabrics and apparel; as well as a variety of gift items.

Goals

This nonprofit, co-operative gallery aims to showcase the work of local artists and reach out to the community with workshops and exhibitions, as well as participate in local arts festivals.

EDAC

February 1, 2020 marked the official merger of the Enderby and District Arts Council with the Enderby Artists Initiative (Courtyard Gallery).

The revitalized Enderby and District Arts Council and Courtyard Gallery continue to bring to the people of Enderby and District the art experiences that they have come to expect.

EDAC has moved it’s office to Courtyard Gallery.

You can find more info about the arts council at enderbyartscouncil.ca .
