DENNIS EVANS

Dennis Evans was born in Viking, Alberta.  He is a graduate of the Alberta College of Art, majoring in ceramics and painting.  He obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Calgary and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Houston, Texas.  Working over fifty years in all areas of the arts, Dennis has been a teacher, an administrator, a production manager and an entrepreneur.  He now lives in Naramata with his wife and operates his own gallery and studio.

In this exhibition, Dennis has chosen to paint iconic buildings that physically trigger his memories of growing up in a small prairie town in Alberta. Rendered with carefully executed architectural details, these buildings exist or existed in the small community where he grew up and is his connection with “a place that never changes” in his memory.  What is more important, however, is that, these buildings help us access our own memories of these institutions, regardless of where the building is located in our experience.  Ask someone to tell you about school, church, the hospital or their childhood home, and they’ll share accounts of their experience, and how it shaped their life.

More examples of Dennis’ paintings and pottery can been seen on his website or at his studio in Naramata, B.C
