Parkside features mythical show
June 11, 2008 · Updated 2:48 PM
A world of 'Myths and Legends' is explored this month at Parkside Centre with an art show by the same name.
Holly Stewart is the South Cariboo artist behind the works, with her collection of mythical scenes which represent eight years of painting.
Stewart was born into a family of artists, and received training from an early age by her father, Don Berger (renowned for his large, impactful floral oil paintings, exhibited internationally). Her great-uncle Edgar Rupprecht was an artist and professor at the Art Institute of Chicago.
Raised in the 100 Mile area, Holly divides her life between Canada and England.
She moved to Oxford in 1991 and began a life-long passion to study Britains history and depict it through art. Sources of inspiration were classical stone architecture and the rich history represented in centuries of paintings.
The collection opened Jan. 5 and will be on display at the Parkside Centre gallery until early February.
The public is welcome to view this show at no cost, during regular hours of operation from
10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday to Friday and Saturdays, noon to 4 p.m.
