Join us for Live Painting Demonstrations with Vancouver Island-based artist April Ponsford. Profoundly inspired by the natural elements that surround the artist, Ponsford’s abstract landscapes are a unique West Coast allusion to mid-century mastery. Painting against a backdrop of hand-carved stone sculptures of the Contemporary Zimbabwean Sculpture Movement—a permanent fixture to Ukama Gallery—Ponsford attributes inspiration in part to the surrounding stone, just as her canvases bring their nuanced beauty to life.

Watch in awe, chat for insight, and certainly, enjoy!
