TinTown sculptures on display

See the Me Within is the final show and sale of the sculptural work of Colleen Hussey.

It conjures the imaginary world she dreamed of as a girl, and reveals the type of reality she experienced growing up.

This retrospective show is the story of Colleen's life told in characters, comments, and interactive art pieces. With more than a hint of humour, she explores challenging issues, finds personal resolution, and begs questions about how we learn to treat each other while we play out our roles and do what is expected.

Her whimsical sculptures of found objects, vintage items, and written word evoke memories and feelings for everyone. This show will be sure to put some thought-provoking ideas in your mind and a grin on your face.

Colleen has lived in the Valley for eight years, ran a gallery here in town, and has been a loyal member of the TinTown artists. Her work is in homes and offices all over the world.

The show runs April 5 to 17 daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 103- 2456 Rosewall Cres. in Courtenay's TinTown. Opening night is this Saturday from 7 to 9 p.m. For more information, contact Colleen Hussey at 250-338-4756.
