The Pearl Ellis Gallery will host a new exhibit starting July 10 and running until July 22.
This show brings together three friends, Sonia Hauser, Dolores Ordway and Charolette Deptford, who originally came together through their adoration and love of art. Even though their artistic styles and backgrounds are totally different their passions are similar.
Sonia’s love of bright color and movement is reflected in her bold choice of color palette.
She paints what emotionally stimulates her, forever seeking to seize the essence of her subject matter. Her style and color choices create a sense of drama and impact. She achieves this by her masterful use of oil and acrylic mediums.
Dolores is inspired by the beauty of our West Coast landscapes and forests.
She specializes in detailed textures and the rhythmic forms of old growth trees. Her paintings capture the reflectiveness and movement of light. Her mediums of choice are acrylic and watercolour.
Charolette’s passion is the power of the ocean.
She tries to capture the surge of the water pounding against the surf, the movements of the water, all the while stimulating our senses by visual impact. Her sensibilities toward her environment are also her inspirations. Charolette loves the transparency and fluidity of water as well as the vibrancy of acrylics so these are her mediums of choice.
Everyone is welcome to come to the show. The gallery is in Comox at 1729 Comox Ave. So that the public may meet the artists, there will be a meet and greet July 14.
