“Aurora” by Frantisek Strouhal

Local artist chosen to exhibit work in National 2016 Open Show in Kamloops

The work will be exhibited at the Old Courthouse Centre for the Arts in Kamloops.

Award winning artist Frantisek Strouhal’s figurative artwork “Aurora” was chosen for a national art exhibition at the Old Courthouse, Centre for the Arts, in Kamloops April 22 through May 1. He was juried for inclusion into the 2016 Open Show.

Frantisek Strouhal lives and works in Passmore. He is internationally admired for his flawless use of traditional 19th century techniques combined with his unique contemporary yet timeless artistic vision.

Strouhal says that his work is a reflection of his own renaissance. His subjects seem to emerge from a surreal, dreamlike pool of warm sepia tones as if bathed or suspended in an ethereal vapor.

“I am very pleased and gratified to have been chosen to participate in the 2016 Open Show in Kamloops. It is nice to be recognized locally and nationally,” Strouhal says.

He is the owner of Mirage Studio, where he spends most of his time creating new artworks and doing portraits on commission. His works are in many private collections and have been featured in numerous juried and invitational exhibitions internationally.
