Jeff has studied, trained and practiced with some of the world's leading breathwork and movement facilitators. Wim Hof, Patrick McKeown, Brian Mackenzie, David Shannahoff Khalsa and Jhenneviev Heartt are a few of the influences that have led to the creation of breathARMY, a unique offering of breathwork, meditation, movement and exposure to natural stressors that help us to regain our own true nature. Jeff also works as a paramedic for the British Columbia Ambulance Service and resides in Victoria, BC.
The current exhibition at Lake Country Art Gallery:
On the Eighth Day, is an exhibition of works by Julie Oakes and Christian Bernard Singer that explores the act of creating as inherently linked to the ability to destroy in order to bring about harmony and peace, or chaos and loss. As we grapple with the climate crisis and a world pandemic, humans are being given an opportunity to review our relationship with the land that we were given, but on which we are merely passing tenants.

We are excited to announce that Artist Destanne Norris will be hosting her first Book Signing event for Leah's Gift in conjunction with the current exhibition:
Join us for tea and a talk at the LCAG on Saturday, March 7th, from 1 - 3 pm. We will be discussing the work on display during the Ekphrastic Poem Exhibition with artists Michael Griffin, John Waite and Lois Huey-Heck, as well as Jude Clarke and John Lent.
The term ‘ekphrastic’ originates from a Greek expression for description. The earliest ekphrastic poems were vivid accounts of real or imagined scenes. Through effusive use of details, writers in ancient Greece aspired to transform the visual into the verbal. Later poets moved beyond description to reflect on deeper meanings. Today, the word ‘ekphrastic’ can refer to any literary response to a non-literary work.
This exhibition, An Ekphrastic Poem, asks you, the viewer, to be the poet. Give ekphrasis a try…
*pick an artwork from this exhibition
*start a conversation with art work, ask questions, invent a response
*reflect on details in the work
*tell a story
The poem can take on any form, haiku, limerick, sonnet, narrative, you decide.
