Artistic trio with Good Intentions

New show opens at Pearl Ellis Aug. 9

Pearl Ellis Gallery is presenting a trio of artists with “Good Intentions.”

Stephanie Good is an acrylic/mixed media artist and photographer in Comox. She studied art and design at the Visual Art Centre in Montreal. She designed and made quilts, and made art cards while living in Vancouver. After 27 years, she wanted a change. Since moving to Comox seven years ago, Stephanie began working with acrylics.

Stephanie is currently working on a series of various waterfowl and their environment. She enjoys painting with the “Monday Bunch” which she joined earlier this year.

David Good is an artist who is an acrylic painter and photographer, living in Comox. He studied art at Langara College and watercolour painting in Vancouver before moving to Comox seven years ago.

He is currently working on a series of paintings he calls  mid-20th century industrial totems. The images he paints are based on aircraft, automobiles and spacecraft from that era. He also enjoys creating images of the sky, water and wilderness that surrounds us.

Brenda Chailfoux-Luscombe is a pyrography and scratchboard artist living in Union Bay. She combines a love of wildlife and an interest in fantasy to create works of art. Pyrography/woodturning allows Brenda to burn on wood, gourds and paper.

Scratchboard is a form of direct engraving on a masonite panel that is coated with a white clay and a thin layer of black ink. An exacto knife is used to scratch away the black ink leaving a black and white image. Brenda will be demonstrating the art of scratchboard at the gallery Aug. 20 and 27 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. To see more of her art, visit www.facebook.com/bbwoodartstudio.

Stephanie and David will take turns at the gallery during the weekdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Stephanie Good, David Good and Brenda Chailfoux-Luscombe have each created in their own styles  on a photograph taken by Stephanie. They will be placed together with a copy of the photograph above the pieces.

The opening reception will take place Saturday, Aug. 13 from 1 – 4 p.m. Refreshments will be available.

The show will run from Aug. 9-28. The Pearl Ellis Gallery is open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays 1-4 p.m. It is located at 1729 Comox Ave. in Comox, across from the mall.
