CAMPBELL RIVER—A North Island-raised artist and actor will get the chance to showcase her work in Campbell River this weekend.

Breanna Podlasly, originally from Sointula, graduated from North Island Secondary School in Port McNeill in 2012 before exploring a career in the arts.

The artist will be at work in the Campbell River Art Gallery Saturday, from 1-3 p.m., capturing the beauty of animals with her unique pencil drawings.

“I love the perfection and detail you can get with a pencil and how everything you can imagine can be brought into reality and seen for others to enjoy,” Podlasly said of her work. “It’s like living out your fantasies and creations.”

She said living creatures inspire her as an artist.

“Animal eyes have something that pull me in and make me feel the colours and feathers and life that surrounds the world,” she said. “ I feel as if there is something pure and untouched.

“It’s beautiful.”

In addition to  working as an artist, Podlasly is an actor who has appeared in several popular television shows, including The 100 and Arctic Air.

Podlasly will be at work at the Campbell River Art Gallery Saturday, December 13, from 1-3 p.m.

The  Gallery’s Artisans’ Market is open Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and until 3 p.m. on Dec. 24.

The Artisans’ Market features the work of dozens of artisans from the region.

For more information, stop by the Gallery between 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., call 250-287-2261 or email admin@crartgallery.ca.
