Art is as individual as the people who create it and that is no exception for three artists in residence at Art Alchemy Studio/Gallery.
All three have diverse backgrounds but each has a devout interest in the process and alchemy of their creative endeavours.
Gayle Schultz, originally from Burlington, Ont., has a keen interest in colour and a passion for design. Gayle’s preoccupation with nature’s rhythms and patterns are conveyed with a delicate approach. However, this can change instantly and a bold semi-abstraction may appear utilizing an appealing colour palette.
Marianne Enhörning is from a family of talented artists. As an architectural designer, she transfers her wonderful sense of depth and perception onto canvas and board utilizing oils. Marianne’s subject matter is currently figurative with soft characteristics, flowing lines and dreamlike qualities that immediately engage the viewer.
Lynn Farwell is from Vancouver Island and spent her earlier years working in the field of makeup artistry and later working with children in the Campbell River and North Vancouver school districts. Lynn relishes the challenge of experimenting with different mediums including printmaking, acrylic and gouache. Her works are whimsical, bold and vary in colour, subject matter and scale.
All three find the studio setting a perfect venue for self-exploration.
Gayle, Marianne and Lynn will open their first show at Art Alchemy Studio/Gallery this Friday from 7 to 9 p.m. The show continues till March 2.
Gallery hours are Thursdays to Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m. Individual viewings may be scheduled through the artists.
