Frantisek Strouhal, a West Kootenay resident, has won acceptance into the prestigious American Juried Art Salon’s 2014 International Fine Arts show.

The accepted work, titled “Silence Within," is currently on display as part of his exhibit in the Capitol Theatre lobby.

Strouhal uses photography, digital collage, contact printing and lithographic ink on watercolour paper. He resorts back to antiquated methods that give much more feeling and depth to his work.

Through his artwork, Strouhal explores thoughts and inspirations of an existential nature and investigates the interaction and harmony between the spiritual and the physical world.

His work can be seen online at frantisekstrouhal.com and artjury.com. The Fine Arts competition attracted entries from around the world.
