Okanagan artists Jim Kalnin and Lucas Glenn come together in Lake Country Art Gallery’s latest exhibition, WildMen.

In this exhibition, Kalnin investigates and challenges  how we respond and interact with the natural world around us.

Kalnin’s work consists of large semi-abstract acrylic and oil paintings along with a series of small watercolour paintings. He reaches into human cultures, religions, world views and ecological studies for thought and subject for his new series of paintings.

Kalnin taught art for 22 years at Okanagan College, Okanagan University College and UBC Okanagan.  Since retiring in 2009, he has rekindled his interests in making art, travelling and delving deeper into life’s great mysteries.

Glenn’s installation, Goods for Men (Real Good Strong Men) looks at the media and consumerism in relation to male identity, and problematic attitudes associated with masculinity such as ego, patriarchy, and anthropocentrism.

Glenn’s work brings together satire, pseudo-history, and humour.

Glenn graduated from UBCO in 2015 with a focus on installation art and philosophy.

WildMen is up at the Lake Country Art Gallery from Sept. 30 through to Nov. 14.

An opening night reception takes place Sept. 30 from 6 to 8 p.m. Artists will be in attendance.
