ART AT THE LIBRARY
New Westminster Public Library provides space for art exhibits reflecting the diverse cultural interests of the community. We currently offer an accessible space for artists working in two-dimensional media, such as painting, drawing or photography on our 2nd floor, Upstairs Art Space.
LARYSA FEDARAVA – January 2021
Born in Belarus, Larysa has been a New Westminster resident for over 10 years. She is fond of three types of ART: her occupation in Assisted Reproduction Technology, martial Arts and the Art of painting.
Her artwork focuses mainly on animals, birds, and sometimes people, using acrylic and pallet knives to show movements and emotions with bold colours. Though Larysa considers herself an amateur, she has had a few shows in Vancouver and Surrey, and looks forward to more!
STEVE VANDEN-EYKEL – December 2020
For almost twenty years, lifelong New Westminster resident and itinerant photographer, Steve Vanden-Eykel has been capturing stunning panoramas of British Columbia, and beyond. He takes to the back roads whenever he gets the chance, looking for beautiful things to point a camera at. “Photography to me is the most Darwinian of arts. You discard a hundred images to get five good ones. The hard part is discarding four more to get one GREAT one.” In this, his first public exhibition, Steve contrasts some of his favorite panoramas with smaller shots that show he is equally comfortable peering in for a closer look. Hence the title, “Senses of Scale”.
