Pandora's Eden
Pandora’s Eden was made on a birchwood canvas using gouache, acrylic markers and iridescent paint. I started it in the summer of 2019 at a party one weekend and eventually finished it in Portland Oregon 3 months later. The painting led me on quite the journey, both inner and outer. Only when finishing it did I come up with the name and wanted to change the story of Pandora's Box. I re-imagined that the evil box she "accidentally" opened let a plethora of goodness, love, light and creation out into this world instead.
We could always use more of it.

There will soon be a new arts space in Rossland upon the successful application made by the Rossland Arts Center Society to lease the Historic Drill Hall. This collective art space will be the new home for the community to connect, learn and create art. It will be a vibrant space for gallery exhibits, performance shows, art workshops, classes and studios.

The application is now in process with the Ministry of Lands, Forests, Natural Resource Operations and Human Development
and will take up to 10 months to complete.

The Rossland Arts Center Society was formed by a group of Rossland artists and supporters of art with the common vision of a community art space. Artists, the Rossland Council for Arts and Culture and the Trail and District Arts Council
encouraged the project along with funding support from
The City of Rossland and Columbia Basin trust.

Building on the Arts Plan developed by the Rossland Council for Arts and Culture, the Rossland Arts Centre Society identified the community 
need and desire to establish an arts space.


The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture would like to congratulate the Rossland Arts Center Society for their success!
