Smithers Art Gallery’s Jan-Mar 2017 exhibition: Kristin Charleton & Sarah Northcott


The 2017 exhibition season at Smithers Art Gallery opens with “Transitions”, a stunning joint show by local artists Kristin Charleton (photography) and Sarah Northcott (paintings).

Kristin Charleton and Sarah Northcott have in many ways been living parallel lives. Born one week apart on Vancouver’s North Shore, both artists developed their craft as a way to connect with their surrounding ecology. Kristin and Sarah met just over a year ago in Smithers and were happily surprised to find that they share similar creative visions – Kristin through photography and Sarah through painting. Inspired by the natural world, their techniques and experimental process are a way for them to interpret rather than just illustrate or document. Their combined work shows a simplicity that takes the viewer past the noise of every day landscapes and shows us the extraordinary in the ordinary.

Please join us at the opening reception on Friday February 3, 7-9pm – everyone is welcome, admission is free and appetizers are provided. Both artists will be in attendance!
