Creations Gallery shows local international artist

News Nov 12, 2009 Ancaster News

Creations Gallery and Framing of Ancaster has a new look and feel. Over the past 12 months owners Dan and Rita Faulkner have worked hard to update the gallery. More exciting changes are on the inside, and there is more to come, said Faulkner.

Operating Creations Gallery and Framing Studio for almost 25 years in Ancaster, past owners David and Linda Faulkner retired last year and offered their son an opportunity to continue the family business. Being actively involved with his parents in the business over the years, it was not a difficult decision and a relatively easy transition to a new career.

“Our goal is to continue to offer the same personal and high quality service that my parents offered, add my expertise in the framing industry and my love and passion for art,” said Faulkner.

“Building on their accomplishments and accumulated goodwill with established artists, we will continue to support our local artists and begin to exhibit international artists.”

To celebrate its 25th anniversary Creations Gallery hosts the work of internationally recognized artist Maya Eventov from Dundas. Creations Gallery and Eventov have worked together since the beginning of her career. The Maya Eventov exhibition runs Nov. 27 to Dec. 22 with artist attendance on Nov. 27 from 6:30-9:30 p. m. and Nov. 28, noon to 4 p. m.

Eventov was born in Leningrad under the former Soviet Union. At a very young age her parents introduced her to the great artistic treasures of the city. The works of the Postimpressionists, and those of the Russian Avant-Garde especially fascinated Eventov. The palette of Matisse, Gauguin and Renoir affected her interpretation of color, while Rodchenko, Lissitzki and Malevich influenced her sense of balance and composition. After excelling in art as a child Eventov was accepted at the prestigious High School No. 109 affiliated with the St. Petersburg State Academy of Industrial and Applied Art. She graduated in 1987 with a masters degree in graphic art and began illustrating children’s books.

She took part in creating murals for concert halls in Moscow, Leningrad, Erevan and Ko m s o m o l s k -n a -Amure.

Eventov immigrated to Canada in 1990, where she now resides with her husband and two children. Her style has evolved during her life in Canada.

She loves the rich, bold and bright colors of the Mediterranean and often portrays scenes from her travels in her paintings. Eventov developed her unique technique of etching on oil after being inspired by the Faberge eggs that fascinated her as a child when she saw them in the museum.
