Welcome to Fantasia, the land of the unseen.

This exhibition started with an interesting question, what is art? What purpose can it serve other than self expression and what can it do for us? The short answer is, Art is Magic. The long answer is; art is the closest thing to magic in our lives.

With a couple of swings from a pencil or a brush; an ethereal, non physical idea that resides in out minds becomes physical and real through an image. Mixing the ingredients for paints, is similar to mixing potions. Making Gesso is similar to brewing something in cauldron.

This exhibition asks you to look at art with a different lens, see the paintings as though they are spells themselves using stories as a thread woven together to bring wonder to our lives.



Joshua Creek Heritage Art Centre

The Joshua Creek Heritage Art Centre serves the community as a place of gatherings from creative media workshops, films, musical events, and lectures to weddings.

The Centre serves as a place where individuals meet to learn, collaborate, and cultivate relationships with one another. This emerging cultural facility promotes local heritage, outreach and accessibility, with ecological integrity being central to its activities.

The 1827 heritage house has been expanded to host large groups in a social setting. Joshua Creek Centre has sun-filled workshop rooms where people can come to work in a variety of artistic media and techniques in a picturesque setting. This addition connects the original house to The Winter Garden which features a boardroom for small meetings.
