Western Canada  Patterns

West End Community Centre, Vancouver

The 12 Vancouver images in this exhibition portray a humorous and sometimes satirical vision of Vancouver as it was in 1984 when Vancity Credit Union commissioned Ken to illustrate their 1985 wall calendar. The exhibition marks the first time since 1985 that the entire suite has been on public display. The remaining works present a more traditional view of western Canada from coastal scenes to Prairie fields.

A World of Trees

Galeri Hadiprana,Jakarta Indonesia

This exhibition is dedicated to the TREE. Growing up on the west coast of Canada I became aware of the significance of trees from an early age and from the time I began to draw and paint, my work has been influenced and inspired by these magnificent specimens. The works in this exhibition focus on Banyan and Brazilian Ironwood trees and also include Damar and Arbutus.
