This Week In Gastown
Written by Gastown Admin
Espace d. – INGRESS
A new body of work is now on exhibit at Espace d by BC artist, Michela Sorrentino. Sorrentino breaks conventional painting rules by combining cold wax, oil, acrylic, graphite, ink, gouache and charcoal. Her playful, repetitive patterns, influenced by her background in graphic and textile design, draw the viewer in, while her thoughtful use of typography and mark making adds depth and patina.
Liquid Amber Tattoo – Guest Artist – Shannon Young – June 15th – 20th (photo: imageryworks.ca)

Shannon has been a guest artist at Liquid Amber Tattoo before and is excited to return to Vancouver and work with the ladies of LAT again.
INUIT GALLERY – Padloo Samayualie drawings
Inuit Gallery Gastown is pleased to present this small grouping of Padloo’s drawings, showing her unique, diverse and often humorous look at the world around her. She closely examines a range of topics from the everyday – such as power lines, street scenes and brightly coloured commercial candy wrappers – to fantastical human figures that seem to be composed of jelly beans.
