2016 Three Yukon Artists InvitationJust Imajan Art Gallery was pleased to showcase the talents and skills of three visiting Yukon artists. The event kicked off on Friday evening, with a wine and cheese social in the gallery to welcome the artists, and continued on Saturday with the artists in attendance, mixing and mingling throughout the day, with an interactive live demo on Saturday afternoon.

Sculptor Sandra Grace Storey, along with metalworks and glassworks mixed media artists Paul Baker and Jeanine Baker, made the trek from the Yukon to Cochrane, where they met with guests, answered questions about their work, and showed off their latest projects.

Sandra demonstrated clay sculpting techniques in the studio, encouraging the crowd to experience the richness and texture of the clay. At the front of the gallery, Jeanine sketched vivid, colourful new designs, illustrating the first step of her fused glass creations. Paul greeted eager visitors and shared anecdotes about his northern Canadian experiences and influences.

A very warm thank you to these Yukon artists for their contribution to this wonderful opening.
