Bold, vibrant colours of non-traditional landscapes illuminate the walls of Martine’s Bistro with Marilyn Peeters’ West Coast landscape artist solo exhibition entitled Landscapes of Desire from May through July.

The popular restaurant boasts 16 landscape paintings that reflect Peeters’ passion for creating paintings from her sensorial perception of nature.

“A unique feature of Martine’s Bistro is our commitment to the local art community,” says Marcus Aartsen, owner of Martine’s Bistro. “Marilyn’s paintings bring a new depth and quality not often seen in the Comox Valley. Her ability to breathe new life into a common landscape using colour and shape will bring a new perspective to landscape art at Martine’s Bistro.”

“It is an honour to be featured as a solo artist at Martine’s Bistro,” says Peeters. “I am looking forward to sharing my art that represents my vision of our natural surroundings. My work is inspired from my personal beliefs, experience in nature, and a vivid imagination.”

Marilyn is a Comox Valley artist with her bachelors degree in fine arts from Emily Carr University. She exhibits her work across Vancouver Island locally, Nanaimo, Victoria, and Sooke as well as internationally in Dubai.

Martine’s Bistro is open for business seven evenings a week after 5 p.m. at 1755 Beaufort Ave. in Comox.
