The North Vancouver Community Arts Council is proud to announce a NEW exhibition space, the City Atrium Gallery. Through a partnership with the City of North Vancouver we have developed a new exhibition space at City Hall that focuses on  installation art, a form of three-dimensional sculptural work designed to intrigue, animate, inspire, and transform the perception of a space.

The act of creating art is often described as a dialogue involving a conversation between the artist and the work.

Working collaboratively creates a unique dynamic, which combines spontaneous communication between the artists and the work. Creative conflict is a reality of collaborative art. It is expected that discussion and occasionally, debate may arise over the direction of the work.

The collaborative work has been a huge joint effort, with both Kathryn and Sande understanding each other and working toward a mutual goal.

Kathryn O’Regan is often asked why she creates art and her answer is, “this is who I am; an artist.” As a maker of art, the process fulfills a need to build meaning in order to understand the cycle of life.

Sande Waters relates her paintings, drawings and photographs to the language of iconic feminine symbols and archetypal imagery.
