Karen Oliver is our new Feature Artist. She is an accomplished artist and one of our newer members. We welcome her enthusiasm and cheerful ways. In her own words: “I love being included in the Courtyard Gallery as one of the artists. Hosting, talking art and selling paintings, pottery, glass pieces, mixed material art, weaving, jewelry, cards, and more from all the artists is really fun.
With the gallery changing over every six to eight weeks, it is a real opportunity to work on themes and a variety of paintings. I am influenced and interested in so many things that it transpires into my paintings and the subjects and mediums chosen. As a Federation of Canadian Artists’ member, it is nice to also show my work in a local gallery.
MEET THE ARTIST – You can meet Karen on September 15th and again on the 23rd, when she will be hosting at the gallery, between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm. You can then meet her personally, and hear more about her art.
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.
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.
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.
