Reclaiming, Reworking & Revisiting
A Collection of Artful Theatre
The art and theatre industries have always been closely intertwined. ARTFUL THEATRE is a fundraising initivative created by artist Tracy-Lynn Chernaske.
The works in this collection reflect ideas of reclaiming, reworking and revisiting becasue they are common ideas in theatre. Many flats, furniture and props are recycled into new and relevant uses for each new show. Of course this goes beyond theatre into a common-place practice in our daily lives like our green bins. It even shows up in our large-scale counter-part like Hollywood with recent films such as “Downsizing” or the documentary “A Plastic Ocean”. Our societal conscience has been wired to think about the kind of world we will leave for the future.
We are absolutely thrilled that so many of the paintings from the RRR collection have sold. Sales from any painting in this collection benefit Metro Theatre to assist with building maintenance costs; with a small portion going back to the artist.
If you would like to own an original piece of art and support the theatre at the same time please consider one of pieces pictured in the gallery below that have not yet been sold or reserved. Alternatively, you are welcome to commission a unique piece from artist Tracy-Lynn Chernaske. Please use the contact form on this website to get in touch.
Thank you to everyone who has visited a showing, come to an exhibition reception and stopped to admire the works on display in the lounge, coffee shops and other locations in Vancouver; and most especially thank you to those who chose to purcahse ART that supports THEATRE.
