Artist Deryk Houston’s Cobble Cottage is part of his new exhibition at Eclectic Gallery

The nature of peace

Local Shadows and Light is on at Eclectic Gallery from April 4 to May 4.

Deryk Houston’s work has been exhibited in one-man exhibitions in the former Soviet Union, Scotland, Iraq, and the United States.

His work is included in many private and public collections including the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa and was featured in the National Film Board of Canada  documentary, From Baghdad to Peace Country.

He has completed large scale ground art projects in Iraq, Canada, and Scotland in support of children’s rights. Much of his work  is about the earth and creating conditions for seeds to grow, a metaphor for the search for peace.

See his show Local Shadows and Light at Eclectic Gallery, 2170 Oak Bay Ave., from April 4 to May 4.

Artists reception is April 4, from 6 to 8 p.m.
