“Stumped” is a wonderful portrayal of a logger. Tongue firmly in cheek, the artist has perfected all the details: from hardhat and earmuffs to thick beard, suspenders, and high-top laced boots. He bends a sapling with one arm, while the other leans on his chainsaw. There seems to be a slight problem, however!! | Artist: Steve Milroy from Victoria, BC | Platinum Sponsor: Kootenay Gallery | Photo: David R.

“Freyr” is a bust of the Norse God – bearer of peace, pleasures, and good weather. The impurities in the stone are incorporated effortlessly while the deliberately unfinished back provides great contrast. Freyr is impressive, subtly radiating strength and beauty. | Artist: Jade Ehrler & Neils Elris from Kootenay Bay, BC | Garden Sponsor: RHC Insurance | Photo: David R.

“Cruising Along” is a fun mobile self-portrait. Using scrounged and found materials, she has fashioned the artist taking a relaxing bike ride. The semi-abstract work features two metal hoops as wheels, and herself atop a crazily angled seat, freewheeling alongside some of her stylized houses, one hand clutching a bouquet – a nod to her Dutch heritage. | Artist: Rabi’a from Winlaw, BC | Gold Sponsor: Canada’s Best Value Inn & Suites | Photo: David R.

“Salmon Dance” showcases the artist’s proficiency and versatile creativity. Woven steel rods are fashioned as three salmon, cavorting at the top of a round cylinder, their habitat fashioned in colourful tiling. Harmonious and hopeful, this lovely sculpture showcases the life he imbues into all his work. | Artist: Peter Vogelaar from Winlaw, BC | Gold Sponsor: Ernie’s Used Auto Parts | Photo: David R.

“Tide Pool” is a nod to the artist’s adopted hometown on the Sunshine Coast. The inhabitants, a Dungeness crab, several starfish, and a host of sea anemones are backlit by spectrum and single colour LEDs. Best viewed at dusk. | Artist: Heather Wall from Powell River, BC | Gold Sponsors: Judy Wearmouth & Katrine Conroy | Photo: David R.

“Connected” turns mundane found and recycled objects and transforms them into something beautiful. Imposing and accessible at the same time, this piece is powerful in both its form and message. | Artist: Paul Reimer from Cranbrook, BC | Titanium Sponsor: Canadian Tire | Photo: David R.

“Listen” eloquently displays the artist’s creativity and talent in any medium. The expressive, imaginative work – lit panels of images on translucent acrylic sheets tightly grouped on an aluminum base – is arresting and undeniably powerful. | Artist: Stephanie Robicheau from Nelson, BC | Platinum Sponsor: Corvine Management | Photo: David R.

“Coalescence” is a woven rod structure – a framework deliberately unfilled. The bird at the end of the gloved, outstretched arm launching into flight is resplendently crafted in wild strands of metal. “This is me freeing myself from attachments,” says Dando. “My body fragments coalescing into something more powerful and liberating.” | Artist: Dave Dando from Nelson, BC | Gold Sponsor: Castlegar Sunrise 2000 Rotary Club | Photo: David R.

“Embrace” is imbued with humanism and emotion. Two alike abstract figures converge and meld, creating open space that accents the shared sphere in the centre. The artists minimalism, balance and entwined symmetry exemplify his title wonderfully. | Artist: Serge Mozhnevsky from Coquitlam, BC | Gold Sponsor: Cantac Machining Ltd. | Photo: David R.

"Carbon Key" is a spectacular sculpture, bursting gloriously in an explosion of muted colour and form. Lovely flourishes are found everywhere. The delicacy, fragility, and exquisite detail of Carbon Key is absolutely marvellous. | Artist: Kate Tupper from Nakusp, BC | Platinum Sponsors: Columbia Power & Columbia Basin Trust | Photo: David R.

“Tsunami” is delightful – a testament to the artists creativity and skill. An amalgamation of two pieces, the two curving crescents and three petal-shaped oval strands one inside the other invite speculation. Is it the ebb and flow of a monster wave over the land? Regardless of the interpretation, the openness employed here is integral to the whole. | Artist: Don Francis from Delta, BC | Gold Sponsor: Heritage Credit Union & HG Insurance Agencies Ltd. | Photo: David R.

A colourful, mystical, layered mosaic, based on environmentally sustainable practices and functionality. The entire sculpture is made from 50-year old cedar repurposed. The succulent cups are intricately designed from the same wood. The painstakingly crafted peak has been erected from hundreds upon hundreds of reclaimed cedar pieces topped with found Kootenay Lake stone. | Artist: Avery Turner from Castlegar, BC | Gold Sponsor: Dr. James Singer & Family | Photo: David R.

“Everything Happens” is big and bold. Four quadrants of acrylic – yellow, black, blue, and red – are mounted in an aluminum framework with identical geometric patterns. The diagonally opposite quadrants have reversed patterns, while at the centre sits a small open square, combining geometry and meaning delightfully. | Artist: Ben Sopow from Nanaimo, BC | Titanium Sponsor: Mitchell Timber Mart | Photo: David R.

Featuring the stylized torso and head of a Goddess, the artists own take on the Roman God. Vertically accentuated, the narrow, limbless figure is serene in demeanour – conveying mystery and radiant beauty. The obvious two-faced image can be seen as a metaphor for double standards and how some present alternative ‘truths’. | Artist: David Hunwick from Victoria, BC | Platinum Sponsor: Dr. Bbandama Makwati & Dr. David Larocque & Family | Photo: David R.
