Kent-Harrison Arts Council launches 2020’s first exhibit

Features the works of artist Greg Ekberg

The Kent-Harrison Arts Council kicks off the new decade to feature the works of Greg Ekberg.

Ekberg’s work features a number of very recent works, abstract paintings composed of acrylic on canvas.

“Ekberg considers his abstract paintings as exercises in composition, contrast and colour, executed in a hard-edge, cellular style,” reads a statement from the Ranger Station Art Gallery. “He is currently exploring these characteristics as they relate to forests and trees.”

All works featured in the gallery during this exhibit were created in the past year and a half.

The show begins on Sunday, March 8 with a reception with the artis from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., and it runs until Wednesday, April 1 at the Ranger Station Art Gallery. Ranger Station is located at 98 Rockwell Drive in Harrison Hot Springs.

The Kent-Harrison Arts Council is a non-profit organization “committed to enriching the community through the presentation, instruction and appreciation of the Arts.” The organziation is entirely volunteer-run and the exhibits change every month.
