Vernon's Headbones Gallery presents an opening reception Thursday night for MO'JO, a sculpture exhibition featuring works by Joe Fafard.
Fafard has drawn, painted, printed and sculpted using the farm as subject matter over the breadth of a lifetime. His often life-size sculptures of horses and cows are seen in public spaces in grand cities and cherished in private collections, a heritage to pass on to future generations. Fafard revolutionized sculpture by turning his attention to family, community and animals, creating works that edify a quotidian country lifestyle.
Headbones Gallery is pleased to present MO’JO including “Le Renard Malgre Lui” and thirteen bronzes that have never been shown in the Okanagan by the internationally acclaimed Joe Fafard.
In the Drawers Gallery, Headbones is presenting five works - a hen house of clucky moxie - by Megan Mansbridge. Five paintings of hens, each named after a prominent female artist and each showing attitude, add to an already vivacious atmosphere.
Headbones Gallery will be hosting Joel Fafard (son of Joe) in concert on February 20. This will be Joel’s third appearance at Headbones Gallery and we look forward to a full house.
The opening reception for MO’JO is Thursday, February 11 from 6 to 8 PM and the public is welcome.
Headbones Gallery is located at 6700 Old Kamloops Road in Vernon. For more information visit www.headbonesgallery.com.
