The fourth installment of the Commercial Alley Art Gallery will feature artwork by local artist Daniel Ellingsen.

Located on the west wall of the Youth Empowerment Society building on the 500 block of Yates Street, the outdoor gallery showcases temporary installations by local artists to add colour and vitality to the area.

Ellingsen’s four-panel artwork titled, Coastal Reports, reflects West Coast culture through image and text. His artwork also features cut-outs, gold leaf and texture to highlight his observations of West Coast socio-cultural issues and topics, combining references from film and pop culture media.

Ellingsen’s proposal was one of 24 submissions reviewed in a juried call to artists process. His work will be introduced on Saturday, Aug. 27 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The Commercial Alley Art Gallery was launched in 2014 with an installation by Other (aka Troy Lovegates).
