Kleinwerks Gallery

Introduction:

 

I love being an artist and a teacher, but I'm a natural curator, and my first love will always be gallery work.

In June 2019, I opened Kleinwerks Gallery. A 1/12th scale miniature contemporary art gallery which exhibits local emerging artists in a professional gallery setting. In addition to an adaptable three component gallery structure, other exhibit spaces include several altered vintage dollhouses and a replica barn. Details such as reception desk, signage, labels etc. add to a realistic art gallery experience. 

Currently accepting artist submissions for late 2020. Please email jones07@telus.net for more information.

Newest Installation - House of Cards

A deck of ordinary playing cards have been gessoed, or black chalk-painted, or partially covered. Then I collage, scratch or paint the cards individually to create 3x4 inch miniature abstract works on paper. 

 

The cards will be exhibited on the walls of an altered dollhouse, then photographed for Kleinwerks Gallery IG.

 

Kleinwerks Gallery presents: Farbewald

 

Translated from German, Farbewald means "Colourful Forest". The installation represents colour-laden trees in a typical Fall forest. The individual pieces are made up of small blocks of wood in simple shapes of squares, spheres and cylinders from which all realistic art begins. The sparse negative space between the pieces symbolize the growing loss of forested areas from over-development in many of our communities. 

 

Farbewald is on view by appointment Oct 1-15 at The Loft Studios. Miniature pieces are $10 each with 1/2 proceeds donated to Critter Care Wildlife Society which rescues displaced and orphaned animals in the Langley area.
