Mortenson returns to the Valley; homecoming show at Filberg

John Mortenson returns to the Comox Valley after an absence of six years.

After an absence of six years, three of which he spent travelling and exhibiting in the American Southwest and three years showing and selling his work in Sidney and Victoria, John Mortenson returns to the Valley.

His “homecoming show” is this weekend, July 16 and 17, at Filberg Lodge in Comox.

The Valley and area has always been a special place for John and his artist wife April. He looks forward to a more relaxing and energizing place to feed his creativity. John is sometimes referred to as a realist/impressionist painter.

With over 35 years experience as a professional artist he has a large portfolio of works, many that have found homes here in the Valley and world wide. John has many new works from his travels as well as local images to share with his collectors and those curious to see what a disciplined and committed artist can accomplish.

He show runs 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.
