The Best from Brushworks hits the walls at the Pearl Ellis Gallery beginning Nov. 13.

This promises to be a visually exciting, wide-ranging exhibition sampling the current work of 26 experienced and talented local artists. The images presented have been rendered in a variety of mediums and styles representing and interpreting experiences from Valley life and from travels far and wide.

Brushworks is a vibrant group of active well-travelled visual artists who meet weekly to share their excitement, enjoyment and knowledge of painting. Their education and training in art is rich and deep and allows them to challenge and encourage each other to explore their vision and their craft as they paint together. Individually and collectively Brushworks members just keep getting better. The public are invited to come and enjoy the fruits of their labour at the Pearl Ellis Gallery 1729 Comox Ave. from Nov. 13 to Dec. 2 during gallery hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Tuesdays through Saturdays and from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sundays.

Meet with these artists during their show opening reception between 1 and 4 on Nov. 17 at the Pearl Ellis. They are always pleased to hear your impressions of the work and happy to answer questions about the work or art in general.

Artists will also be present and some will paint at the gallery from 1 to 4 each day of the show.

An added feature during the show will be the opportunity for all visitors to enter in the free draw to win a trip to Las Vegas. The draw box will be in the gallery from Nov. 7 to 30. Watch for details in the Record.

You never know, you may be lucky enough to fall in love with a piece for yourself or for someone deserving of a special gift. So, whether gallery hopping, shopping or out or a stroll, take a few minutes to fill your imagination and senses, come on in to the Pearl Ellis Gallery and sample the Best of Brushworks.
