The Audain Art Museum recently welcomed a new exhibit.
Gathie Falk: Revelations, which opened Nov. 24 and will remain available until May 6 next year, gives visitors the opportunity to dive into the renowned career of its titular artist. Born in 1928, Falk (who is of Russian Mennonite descent) settled in Vancouver as an adult and established herself on the Canadian arts scene as a visionary creator unafraid of experimentation.
“There was a time, long ago, when I thought I would like nothing more than to be a street-corner musician," Falk is quoted saying. "What I became, and have been for many years is an artist. Not a singer, not a pianist, not a violinist, but a visual artist.”
The exhibition includes over 90 works and capably showcases Falk's range, from acrylic and oil painting to photography and video to bronze and ceramic sculpture.
In other news, the Audain is also hosting its winter Bespoke Market on Dec. 9 and 10. Tickets are $10 at the door and $15 for both days, with early bird pricing available online.
