Introduction to Drawing Botanicals

with Christy Dunsmore

Drawing botanicals is a centuries old practice. Before photography was invented, documenting plants with drawings was critical to their study. The artist’s goal was to show the exact shape, size and colour of the plants and flowers under observation, resulting in exquisitely detailed, delicate drawings.

Are We Still Together?

Ghislain Brown-Kossi

January 14 - February 15, 2021
A French artist based in Vancouver, Ghislain Brown-Kossi’s work aims to understand how individuals interact with each other and how social relationships are transformed. As time passes he wonders if, as a society, we will break the walls and barriers between our diverse communities. People often fear new comers and change, but at the same time they would like to know more about them. “Are We Still Together”, addresses the feeling of disconnection, and spurs a dialogue in our communities.

Painters Marney-Rose Edge and Claire Sower are collaborating to create Garden Escapes, an exhibition at PoMoArts that reflects their love of florals and the garden spaces they grow in. The heightened importance of the social and mental benefits of these spaces inspired the artists to add to their exhibition artwork by inviting people to share their photos of garden spaces they find colourful, restful or beautiful. The artists will select from the submitted photos and paint a few of them to show in the exhibition. Each of the artists have different styles; with Marney-Rose focusing on painting detailed florals, while Claire enjoys painting the broader view garden vistas.
