Everyone is welcome to a Garden Art Show and Sale at 901 Islington Cres. in the Foxwood neighbourhood in Comox.

On Aug. 20 and 21 from noon to 4 p.m., June Heaton and Lynne Sweetman will present their artwork in the lovely setting of June’s English garden, which was included in 2010’s Comox Valley Garden Tour.

Heaton is basically self-taught from books, observation, and experimentation, but has taken many classes and workshops from renowned Vancouver Island artists. She paints realism with a healthy dose of imagination of varied subjects in both acrylic and oil .

She is a member of Brushworks and the Pearl Ellis Gallery and her work can be seen at her home studio by contacting her at  juneheaton@shaw.ca or at her website at www.juneheaton.com.

Sweetman is inspired by the West Coast beauty and our active art community. Also basically self taught, she has explored all mediums and become most comfortable with the versatility of acrylics in an impressionist style.

She is an active member of Brushworks and continues to expand her skills through practise, observation and workshops.  Lynne’s goal is to produce paintings that give lasting pleasure and lift the spirits.

Her website is at www.LynneSweetman.com.
