Wilden Art Promenade - Dawson Studios Kelowna



I recently participated in the Wilden Art Promenade in conjunction with the Rotary Centre for the Arts. Here is the article posted in Snap Okanagan
Nicholas Dawson




The Wilden Art Promenade has become a popular social event. Held in conjunction with the Rotary Centre for the Arts, the event uses the gorgeous Wilden properties to showcase artwork from the RCA artists.




An 'invitation only' evening wine and cheese reception got things off to a stylish start with public viewings of both the showhomes and the artwork continuing that weekend.

Visitors were tempted by a community barbecue, the artists themselves who were on hand for a meet and greet and a prize draw for a trip to Paris.

The Wilden Skylands Development has some stunning homes built by some of the areas leading building companies, all with a focus on real quality. Visit their website at http://www.wildenskylands.com/

Bronze Sculptures Kelowna

video


Dawson Studios produces Bronze sculptures that offers contemporary design within an old world medium which gives sense of longevity to the pieces.


Nicholas Dawson works with clay and wax to achieve a final work in bronze allows a freedom of expression hard to duplicate in in other mediums.


The excitement of possibilities with no limitations while working in this medium inspires him to keep exploring this art form!

Stone Sculptures Kelowna





The characteristics of the stone and its potential are hidden until the carver applies his chisel.


Many times Nicholas Dawson will start carving with no plan at all but the stones colours and natural characterises start to dictate the shape of the final piece.


Wood Sculptures Kelowna




Nicholas Dawson is able to see art in all that surround him.

In wood nature has started the artistic process and Nicholas Dawson of Dawson Studios works to complete the process.

Burl wood, drift wood and old barn wood all have potential when put to chisel. Nicholas Dawson recycles what nature has given into magnificence pieces of art.
