Pnina Granirer’s Floating Dancers


Busy artist Pnina Granirer is having another exhibition! Floating Dancers will be at the Seymour Art Gallery, 4360 Gallant Ave. in Deep Cove, North Vancouver, from November 8th – Dec.4th, 2005, with the opening reception on Tuesday, November 15th, 7 – 9 pm. There will a dance performance by Cory Caulfield at 8 pm.

This exhibition is an installation of large figurative drawings on clear mylar sheets and mixed media paintings that explore movement and dance. Parts of this exhibition were shown last March at the Sidney and Gertrude Zack Gallery in Vancouver. A new series, ROMBUS VARIATIONS; IN SEARCH OF MEANING, will be shown at the Seymour Art Gallery.

The documentary, Pnina Granirer: Portrait of an Artist, which aired for the first time on January 30, 2005 on BRAVO!, will be screened during the exhibit run.

Following her participation this summer in WESTCOAST SURREAL: A Canadian Perspective at the Museo Granell in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, Pnina Granirer’s works are now part of this Museum’s prestigious collection. Do visit Pnina Granirer’s website.

Pnina has been in these pages several times – I wrote about my visit to Pnina’s show at the Zack Gallery last spring and how it inspired my own work with mylar layers, about a visit to her studio, and about the theft of her work. (I must remember to ask her if it was ever recovered.)
