Exhibit: A Luminous Journey: The Art of Arran Stephens, O.B.C.
June 1-12, 2022
In support of Ukraine, Nature’s Path Foods co-founder, philanthropist, and painter Arran Stephens is showcasing an art exhibit at UBC campus, with all proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders.
After taking a 49-year hiatus from painting to build Nature’s Path Foods, a family, and a community, Arran took up brushes again in 2016, crafting visual stories of life in the lush nature of Goldstream, BC, where he grew up; his teachers and spiritual quest in India; mystical themes; family; people; and more.
In response to the tragic humanitarian crisis caused by war in Ukraine, Arran has created a new painting, Madonna of Sunflowers (2022, 36″x36”, oil on canvas), of a Ukrainian woman surrounded by sunflowers and saddened by the destruction of war. She represents peace and love, while the sunflowers represent regeneration. Signed prints of the painting will be available for purchase with all proceeds again going to Doctors Without Borders Canada.
The exhibit is presented by Nature’s Path, UBC Faculty of Land and Food Systems, and Opus Art Supplies.
