    Prolific painter Tatjana Mirkov-Popovicki draws inspiration for her work by immersing herself in nature; mountain climbing, hiking & beach combing. Her acrylic paintings capture the awe-inspiring scenes found in the wilderness of BC & Alberta. On her work Mirkov-Popovicki says "Every color, shape, and pattern found in nature is a gift and a reminder to preserve the world’s natural treasures. I collect these gifts and put them on the stage in my paintings, as my offering to the lovers or land and art."

    Opening Reception Tuesday September 4,  6-8pm.
    Everyone welcome!
