Meet the Artist for February on the 28th

Garth Kuraoka

Monashee Arts Council Member




Artist Statement:

My interest in wood started many years ago. As time permitted, I experimented with wood, making frames and features for family and friends. My main interest is barnwood.  It intrigues me how nature weathers the wood, exposing a range of colors  while enhancing the grain. The nail holes, knots, and saw curves give a historic and antique appearance.

Barnwood and antique hardware compliment each other, making it eye catching art. The biggest challenge of my art is deciding what door knobs and plates suit the color of  the wood grain. In  my custom made frames, the appearance of a picture is enhanced by the earthy barnwood tones. Notice that each frame, mirror and door knob feature is unique and hand made as one of a kind.
The excitement of giving new life to weathered wood satisfies my inner self.

Come down to the Lumby Branch on February 28th and talk to Garth about his incredible works of art from 12:00 - 1:00PM
