A great art gallery show

The show by artist Claire Kujundzic continues until September 10, and is most attractive in its colours, composition and harmony – each work, a pleasure to behold.

As well, the message in each work gives a feeling that nature is beautiful, but has suffered at the hands of those seeking money/profit.

Claire Kujundzic and Bill Horne have seen the forest areas of B.C. and much of the mowing down of clear-cutting. They have also seen vast areas of forest that have suffered from fires as well as insect destruction, adding to the burning of forest-harvesting slash.

From my South Castlegar windows I see millions of trees in the Pass Creek and Kootenay River directions. It would appear that harvests could continue without consideration for future forest health.

As a former Sierra Club group chairman on Vancouver Island, I had seen the clear-cutting results of about 80 per cent of old growth forests cut. At that time several groups were protesting. Some extreme measures resulted in jail terms.

There was, however, an awakening and better practices resulted. With population growth, care of the environment will be needed.

The art work of Claire Kujundzic will cry out for this environmental cure, not only of forests, but also of water, air and soil.Be sure to take ample time to see this remarkable art and humanities show – read everything.

John Oswald,

Castlegar.
