2016 Art Together Show

The 2016 Art Together Show was on display at the Shadbolt Centre of the Arts in Burnaby before going on tour to the Bob Prettie Library and at the downtown debut in Park Place.

The theme for the show was “To Build” taken from the 2016 community theme:

“For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything” Hebrews 3:4

5 Building the Loneliness in B.C

2016 20″ x 20″

British Columbia is a very large place. Sometimes human beings might feel lost in such an isolated place and the same in the big city. Even though there are millions of people around, surrounded by sky-scrapers, the loneliness is sneaking around like the air we breathe. Such a paradox isn’t it? The shining city and the silence of nature, the emptiness is still there, touching our inner selves. We used the symbols of the modern city and also of the teepee, totem pole and nature.

Up The Wall

Niall McNeil and Peter McKinley

Acrylic on canvas
2016 20″ x 20″

This painting represents the importance of building patience. We have all experienced events, situations, tasks or even people that drove us “up the wall”. Even this painting, the techniques we used and finding the time to complete our work, threw up doubts and frustration. However, the challenges we face can become much easier once we learn a little patience. Forget the results and enjoy the process!
