Keith Carlson

Originally from Saskatchewan I moved to Prince George in 1974 and taught secondary school art in all disciplines before retiring in 2009. I attended UBC and UVic to obtain a master’s degree in art education (1992). During my tenure as an art teacher, I produced my own artwork and classroom demonstration work. After my master’s degree besides teaching, I went into more depth in my personal work. In “retirement” I seek to examine my personal style, my aesthetic and artistic interests including imagery and motif. In August of 2013 we moved to Galiano Island British Columbia Canada where I opened a small gallery to display my work.

I work in a variety of painting and graphic styles as well as in wood carving and sculptures. I feel equally at home creating art that is abstract or realistic, large or small, colour or black and white.

Bruce Dolsen - Now Closed

Under These Skies - a collection of paintings from Bruce Dolsen.

Artist's statement:

My sketchbooks from the past winter are full of images of  “nurse stump” forms in the forest; these are the remains of the virgin forests that covered the coast and were brutally logged off well over a hundred years ago. The stumps remain: they decay, yet give testimony to the girth of these giants of the past, and continue to nurture new growth that clings to them and grows out of and around them. I came to realize (looking to learn, that is) that while we may have our way with nature, it has its own way, and if we don’t respect it—if we don’t learn to look—we are the poorer for it. In saying this, I am indebted to the wisdom and the patience of the indigenous peoples of this coast on whose unceded territory this exhibition takes place.
