SOLO EXHIBITION & SILENT AUCTION: Walnut Canyon Residence
Walnut, California, U.S.A.
September 8, 2008
"Walnut Canyon Silent Auction"
This one-night-only exhibition was held in a private residence and attended by several dozen friends and fans. A variety of Briana Lyon's drawings and paintings were shown in three separate rooms. More than half of the 70 pieces displayed were sold.
These works were a collection of both accomplished and amateur creations. The largest and most distinguished pieces were interpretive oceanscapes of Southern California. While others were expressive pieces, academic experiments and miniature landscapes from the end of her time in Vancouver.
Briana Lyon completed her undergraduate studies in Canada in January of 2008 and then travelled California. She also visited Colorado and central British Columbia, occasionally completing small en plein air landscapes as she went. She coordinated and hosted the Walnut Canyon Silent Auction in September of 2008 as a fundraiser for her move to central, rural British Columbia from Los Angeles.
