July’s exhibition at the Visual Arts Center in Revelstoke is sure to be a hit with everyone, as works by five artists adorn the walls in a colorful and diverse display of artistic talent from within.

The main gallery will feature works by Turbo Bambi (Claudia Simon) of Revelstoke, a multimedia artist blending the boundaries between the backcountry and the canvas with comedic street art and minimalist landscapes. “Let the Good Times Roll” will be the artist’s largest solo exhibition to date and will feature a new body of work comprised of traditional art, skateboarding, woodworking and NFT. Turbo Bambi’s works are already on display around Revelstoke with a colorful 3D mural as part of Art Alleries and hand-painted abstract panels in the Revelstoke Mountain Resort terrain park.

Ben Arcega of Kelowna will present a new body of work described as an insight into who and what inspires his unique approach to painting, skating and self-expression. Drawn from memories of places he traveled and people he met, the show contains stylized portraits of skateboarders, musicians, surfers, as well as a handful of more abstract creations.

The second gallery will present a joint installation by Heather Yip and Nicole LeBoutilier. Yip, a contemporary conceptual visual artist, is inspired by human relationships, technology and the environment. She communicates concepts through assemblage, performance and digital media techniques. LeBoutilier is inspired by his environment and explores the possibilities of abstraction, memory and materials while discovering new and unknown environments.

Maxim B. Vidricaire’s “timeless” works will be exhibited in the third gallery. The works are a collection of film images taken in Revelstoke. Vidricaire aims to portray the character, charm and ambiance of a city going through a major growth spurt and to communicate a sense of nostalgia while documenting the current state of the city.
