Artist Reception with cash bar & complimentary nibbles: Thursday, April 25th, 7 pm.
Show continues until May 25th.
Born and raised in Saskatoon, SK, Donna Bilyk knew from an early age that her passion in life was the creation of art. Married with 5 children, Donna has moved around Western Canada, and since 1995 has owned and operated Artist’s Touch, which specializes in Custom Picture Framing, Photography, and Fine Art.
After completing her Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Lethbridge in 2011, Donna came full circle and enrolled in the Master of Fine Arts program at the University of Saskatchewan. She has had the opportunity to participate in numerous solo and group exhibitions and her works are held in both private and corporate collections.
Her practice incorporates a multi-disciplinary approach, working in oils, acrylic, charcoal, photography and sculpture. She is inspired by Impressionist artists such as Degas and Manet for their use of light, brushwork and strong compositional elements. Recent exposure to contemporary artists: Richter, Bartlett and Hughes have formed a diverse assemblage to draw upon.
This exhibition will be based on photos that Donna has captured at various times while visiting Fernie and the spirit of the town that she encapsulates in these photographic souvenirs.
