Indigo Sky by Mary Deveau.

Under Moody Skies at the Pearl Ellis Gallery

Mary Deveau is an abstract and impressionist painter living and working in Comox.

She uses acrylic paint to create textured, energized landscapes, seascapes and abstracts. Her work is loose and alive as she paints in a free and fluid style. She pulls moments from memory in order to recreate them on canvas and capture the “aura” or energy of a place.

Deveau is influenced by her surroundings, and there is no shortage of inspiration living in the Comox Valley. It is obvious that the sea and coastal shores play a large role in her expression, as well as the wide open spaces of big sky Alberta, where she lived for most of her life.

Deveau is a graduate of Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Her work is shown and sold in various galleries and festivals throughout B.C. and in Alberta.

Her paintings are on display at the Pearl Ellis Gallery from April 3 to 21, 2018. Join Deveau for an opening reception, with refreshments and a free draw, on April 5, from 7 to 9 p.m.

The Pearl Ellis Gallery is located at 1729 Comox Ave. in Comox. Open Tuesday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., closed Sunday and Monday. Free admission.
