Brentwood Bay Library Gallery Opportunity
There are still a few spaces–in January, April and the summer months–for artists to display their work at the Brentwood Bay Library. We have space to hang about four larger paintings and one smaller one. Although the works cannot show prices, you are welcome to have your contact information displayed with your artworks. See the December issue of ArtChat for details on displaying your work.
2020 POV Announced from 2019!
At November’s general meeting, SPAC members chose “Umbrellas in the Sky” by Anne Teichroew, a member of Sidney Shutterbugs Photo Club, as 2020’s Point of View photo.
Please use this photo as your inspiration for an innovative piece of art in any medium: painting, drawing, pottery, fabric art, paper craft, 2D or 3D. There is no limit as to what you can do although we would appreciate it if the art does not exceed about 24″ x 30″ due to space limitations.
The POV art will be displayed at the Mary Winspear Center for the month of April & part of May in 2020.
If you have any questions about POV, just ask!
Next General Meeting
Our next general meeting will take place on December 2 at 2pm. Our December artist presenter, Andrea England, works in watercolour. Her art is inspired by the ocean, wildlife and living aboard a sailboat. Rippling white lines of untouched paper give her paintings a sense of life, light and movement. Her work has been shown in several BC galleries. Members are in for a treat meeting Andrea and her wonderful art.
Recent General Meeting
Thank you to Debbie Katz, our November artist presenter, who entertained everyone with her enthusiasm. She arrived with a wonderful assortment of her colourful felt creations. It is amazing what she creates using bubble wrap, soapy water, a board and a dowel…and felt, of course! Based on North Pender Island, she markets her art under the name, “Because I Felt Like It”.
