To Vancouver Canucks fans he’s known as King Richard, but these days he’s a Kelowna-based artist.

Former Canucks goalie Richard Brodeur is one of three artists being featured in a new Arts Council of the Central Okanagan exhibit at the Kelowna Art Gallery. People may not realize Richard is the force behind the popular "My Childhood Hockey Memories" paintings.

The exhibit, called Storytellers, opens Saturday, Nov. 28, and also features art created by Danielle Krysa and Jude Clarke, according to a gallery media release. The exhibition centres around the idea that we are all storytellers encountering narratives all the time, whether that be in books, newspapers, conversations, online media outlets or on social media.

"Despite these many overlapping stories that compete for attention in our daily lives, it is our own inner narrative that is our most compelling means of communication. It is the product of this subconscious landscape, which will be represented visually in Storytellers," the gallery said.

By sharing their stories, the artists invite viewers to open up and let the vital spark of creativity inspire them.

Storytellers is organized by the Arts Council of the Central Okanagan and runs from Nov. 28 to Jan. 31. The community gallery space, where Storytellers will hang, is free at all times while individual admission to the rest of gallery's space is $5.
