Join us at the Tidal Art Centre Friday, July 31 from 5 to 8 pm for the opening of "FINDING A PLACE" - paintings, textiles and natural colour by Annie Robinson & Joshua deGroot.


Annie Robinson: I am a painter and textile artist. My work articulates place and expresses landscape, drawing attention to the magic of a natural scene through a simple, flowing visual language. I use lots of different materials: acrylic and watercolor paint, naturally dyed textiles, anything I can find in the forest by my house and foraged color.

Joshua deGroot: I am a multidisciplinary artist living in Powell River. My work colourfully expresses places and objects that deserve to be suspended in time. I find myself painting mundanely beautiful things. A tangled garden, dinner preparations, a certain bend in the path; these call to me to be held as eternal moments.

"FINDING A PLACE" runs from August 1 to 8 daily. Email: hello@annierobinson.art for gallery hours or call +1.604.910.3321

Tidal Art Centre. 9971 Finn Bay Road, Lund, BC

Gallery phone: +1.604.414.5954

Please maintain appropriate social distancing during the event.

See you there!

Tidal Jam, June 2020

Tidal recently had an outside music jam.

Hopefully, as health and safety concerns are reduced we will have more music events with listeners as well as players. For now, Finn Bay echoed with the amazing sounds of these musicians playing together. Thanks to Pierre (violin), Maggie (flute and vocals), Bob (drums), Ron (keyboard), Sheila (guitar, keyboard and vocals), Stephanie (double bass), Janine (harp), Carston (accordion), Simon (banjo), Catalin (guitar), Jet (drumbox), Prash (keyboard, guitar and vocals), Ali (keyboard), and there were several pocket “harps” of course.

Thank you thank you for sharing the fun and sounds!

Life Drawing

We had our first life drawing class at Tidal Art Centre on June 16. With 8 participants plus a model, we were able to maintain social distancing and have a great time. We will try to have these sessions bi-monthly whenever the space is available. In other words, the room we use is a classroom, a gallery AND an event space!

Private instruction

We know many artists happy to give private instruction. Give us a call if you have something you are interested in pursuing. Some of the artists who are currently available for private instruction are:

  • Shivaun Gingras - all things clay

  • Kerensa Haynes - painting, drawing etc

  • Barbara Langmaid - painting, drawing

  • Prashant Miranda - journal keeping, watercolour, drawing

We strongly believe in sharing and learning. Powell River is full of amazing artists, many of whom love to show others their techniques and share tips. We’d love to pair you up!

Artists in Residence

Our artist in residence program will continue with Annie Robinson and Joshua Degroot in mid July.

Hope to see you soon.

Join us at the Tidal Art Centre June 27 from 3 to 7 pm for the opening of "FORMWORK", metal art by Stefanie Dueck.

Artist Statement:

Reflecting my experiences in art, craft and industry, I strive to use traditional metalworking techniques in unconventional ways. With both functional and sculptural pieces I am driven by process and an experimental spirit. Explorations with metal have taken me from the Kootenay School of the Arts in Nelson, BC, to an apprenticeship in Southern Spain, a scholarship at the Center for Metal Arts in Pennsylvania, and over a decade of independent practice in Vancouver. I relocated to the Powell River region in January, and am looking forward to feeling how my new community will influence my work.

The show runs from June 28 to July 6; 5-7 pm daily, or by appointment. Email: stefaniedueck(at)gmail(dot)com
