Artreach Studios


Art Reach Studios
 

Artists from Artreach Studios will conduct live art demonstrations throughout the Festival weekend. Artreach Studios is committed to building positive self-awareness, innovative thinking, and original expression. In their Gallery setting, they believe in cultivating the intrinsic creativity of every child and person. Artreach highly regard the importance of providing the opportunity to engage in imaginative art making, beyond the rote manufacturing of reproductions of predictable works of art, and instead, teach students to understand art making and find ways in which they can creatively express themselves.

Gavin Carter - Wood Sculptor


Art Reach Studios
 

Gavin works mainly with old weathered wood, oak being his favourite. His inspiration comes from the time he spent in the Arctic where he found pieces of wood 1000's of years old that were knarled and weathered but had endured the elements and survived the presence of people. He is also interested in how they have effected the landscape and the landscape has effected them.

At the Dark Horse festival Gavin will be creating a totem piece that will have residence at the site all year round. We hope to involve chldren young and old to have some creative input into the design that will be around for years to come.
