Laura Levistky

9th annual Harrison art show

Memorial Hall show features work from more than 35 artists in a variety of mediums

Nature and wildlife artist Laura Levistky is the featured artist in the upcoming Harrison Art Show.

This year’s show includes more than 35 artists who work in a variety of media. It’s a popular local event, kicking off a season of activities during Harrison’s peak tourist season.

Levitsky, a Chilliwack artist, says painting never gets old. There’s a sense of accomplishment with each new work.

“Every time I come up with a new composition, it’s a new challenge,” explains Levistky.

She is an award-winning artist, inspired by B.C.’s landscape, wildlife and landmarks. Levitsky, a self-taught artist, often paints birds and other wildlife as well as floral-inspired pieces. She has one series with vintage cars set in nature, a unique juxtaposition of manmade with natural.

This year, Levitsky received double honours for her work. Her piece ‘A Quiet Repose’ of a blue heron was awarded the BC Wildlife Federation Artist of the Year for 2015. And Ducks Unlimited Canada honoured her piece ‘Charm & Elegance’ for their Waterfowl Stamp and Print for 2015.

Levitsky brings pieces to the Harrison Art show every year. She says it is a wonderful show and encourages everyone to attend.

“It’s such a close-knit little group of artists,” she shares. “All the artists are supportive of each other, and the art is representative of the work they’ve poured themselves into.”

The 9th annual Harrison Art Show runs May 16 and 17 from 10-5 p.m. at the Harrison Memorial Hall. Admission is by donation.
