Local artists Mary Osborn Reed and Gail Neuls are holding a huge two-day only inventory paintings sale. They invite the public to their homes April 6 and 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Reed is a realistic impressionist painter whose love for art is expressed in a number of subjects from people and animals to landscapes. She enjoys working with colour, and uses mediums like graphite, watercolour and acrylics. She has lived and painted in the Comox Valley most of her life, and received all her art credits from North Island College. She has won several awards.
Neuls paints in a unique semi-abstract stylist manner. Her love for the Comox Valley is expressed in many of her landscapes. Both the realistic and abstraction are visible and somewhat mystical. The poetry of lines and perspective combined with strong exciting colours is evident. She has lived in the Comox Valley for 50 years. A highlight was her training at NIC.
Reed’s address is 3509 South Island Hwy., Courtenay, at the corner of Fraser Road and the highway.
Neuls’ address is 3350 Fraser Rd. in Courtenay.
They look forward to opening their doors to the public on the studio tour, and will be there to answer any questions.
