OPENING RECEPTION: Wednesday May 16, 5 – 8 pm.
Larry Pilcher lived in Vancouver then North Vancouver, and moved to the Shuswap in 1987. His experiences have gained him the name “jack of all trades”. Larry is finding time to do art again now.
Education in art started at a young age in school where he won art awards, as well as a scholarship to the Vancouver School of Art. Larry went on to do some art programs at Langara and continued to Capilano Colleges.
Attending for seven years, and sailing. During that period of time his projects ranged from painting, stitchery, printmaking, sculpture of many types, pottery and some murals and posters.
His current attention is with painting, and working towards finishing a gas kiln, making pottery and sculpture in a new art studio he recently built.
Starting at an early age, the need to express nature developed more and more with me. Now it has come to this point of seeing a parallel of nature under attack, as well as with me. Wanting to hold on to the expressions seen in nature, I have felt an especial link of the mother child relationships. In other paintings as in ‘Fen Frenzy’ and ‘Harpy Justice’, the need to show all of humanity and what is happening to nature, is the predominant aspect. As a consequence of dealing with physical pain, and focusing it into a way to create, these paintings have been the results. Unalloyed In their environs, the pure and brilliant colors I use express the wonderfulness of the creation that has been so bountifully gifted with us all. Each and every intricate creature has a particular story to tell. As you see these creature gems come to life, you will see the story about them.

The Kamloops Courthouse Gallery is a non-profit, co-operative art gallery which was founded in 2007 by a small group of dedicated artists from the Kamloops area. Today, the Gallery and Gift Shop are managed by a growing group of artists offering a wide range of talents and skills.
The purpose of the gallery is to provide a venue for member artists to sell their work while offering the community an opportunity to experience different forms of visual and functional art. Our objectives are to provide continuing support for the co-op and its membership through the gift shop and by organizing artisan fairs in the Old Courthouse.
Another objective is to provide education by offering demonstrations and workshops for those interested in learning a new art form.
We are dedicated to creating an enriching and cultural experience for both residents and visitors of Kamloops, as well as the people of British Columbia. Culture, Art, Community and Prosperity all become a reality as a result of this initiative. We are located in the historic “Old Kamloops Courthouse” which we share with the Kamloops Community Arts Council and Arnica.
The Kamloops Courthouse Gallery Gift Shop boasts an unmatched selection of media and styles including pottery, jewelry, glass art, paintings, scupture and fibre art to suit the tastes of casual shoppers as well as serious collectors.
