Exhibiting Artists

Bronwen Belenkie

Raised in a family of artists in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia, Bronwen Belenkie paints large-scale Canadian landscapes with her acrylics. With her interpretive-impressionistic style, people, events and places are depicted as trees, mountains and landscapes.

One of her most popular formats is to paint families in the forms of trees. People gravitate towards certain kinds of trees…cedars, aspen, maple or birch. Family members are depicted as trees. Names and secret messages are painted in the first layers, photographed and then painted over. Generations of people can be captured this way and family members always enjoy knowing which tree represents them. Bronwen enjoys adding sentimental touches to each commission, celebrating milestone events, anniversaries, birthdays or words of love.

For the past three years, Bronwen has been the Artist in Residence at The Fairmont Vancouver Airport, and also shows her pieces at The Terminal City Club in Vancouver.

“Whenever I paint my interpretive landscapes, waterscapes and trees, my primary goal is to uplift the viewer and transport them into the joy and wonder of the British Columbian wilderness.”

Medium: Acrylic paint on canvas

Parvaneh Roudgar

Parvaneh Roudgar’s work originates its roots in the classic tradition of her country of origin Iran and in Italy. The inspiration of Roudgar derives fundamentally from four areas, within which is found a thematic route that starts from the classic western and Persian civilization and arrives to the expressive modules of the modern and contemporary sculpture. In the sculptures of Parvaneh Roudgar a particular meaning is found in the human images, that take shape in the maternity, in the passions and in the women figures which strong dynamism transform the original figurative elements into art forms that evoke great strength. Sometimes the power of the lines that draw the figures, and the marked curves of the body, reach to communicate the suffering, the pain, without still failing with the aesthetic dimension of the image in its complex.


Currently living in Canada, Roudgar has worked within different cultures, and this co-mingling of traditions is poignantly evocative within her different styles of work. Alongside her figurative works Roudgar has an extensive collection of geometric and abstract sculptures. Parvaneh Roudgar began her journey in art in 1986 at the Artistic Lyceum in Florence under the instruction of her Professor of Sculpture, Antonio Di Tommaso, and renowned Professor of Ceramics, Marcello Fantoni. Parvaneh concluded her art studies at the University of Eta' Libera of Florence and went on to specialize in ceramics, plaster and casting. She received her Certificate in Working with Stone at the Art School of Porta Romana in Florence and has since been the recipient of numerous prizes internationally. She has been teaching in various art colleges and in her private studios for the past 30 years.   

Alongside having her works exhibited in many different countries in North America, Asia and Europe, in 2016, Parvaneh’s most recent work “Mother and Child on a Bike” was commissioned and permanently installed in the Inlet Skytrain Station in Port Moody (Canada).In 2018 her work Migration has been installed permanently in Currumbian Wildlife Sanctuary in Gold Coast, Australia. Her works are part of the collection of the Salsali’s Museum in Dubai and different projects have been displayed as outdoor sculptures in North America and Iran.

"With art I came to know my true self through my strengths and weaknesses. When I work I must be honest with my nature in order to be creative and original. I think that life is like a river flowing. Every time I wash my hands in this river I have different feelings due to ever changing motion of its waters. Every work I made is an expression of these feelings. I feel happy within myself when I acknowledge and accept the changing nature of my thought and feelings and witnessing the flow of my river of life."
