A group of art friends who have painted and shared their passion for more than 10 years are excited to show their work at the Pearl Ellis Gallery from Jan. 13 to Feb. 5. Thirteen artists from the Wet Paint Art Group, hailing from Courtenay, Comox, Black Creek, and Campbell River, plan to delight the senses with their fresh array of new paintings and 3D artwork.
The art of Diana Caldwell, Loree Cunningham, Stephenie Davidson, Lynda Glover, Shelly Hollingshead, Yin Hoskins, Jenny Mitchell, Michelle Ohlsson, Elaine Prodor, Lesley Rieck, Kathi Rudko, Victoria Scott, and Nancy Townsend represents a wide range of experience from a few years to more than three decades. An eclectic mix of subjects and styles, from representational to abstract, in a variety of mediums (acrylic, oil, watercolour, and mixed media) will be on display.
While our coastal environment and natural world can be seen reflected in many of the artists’ works, the style and interpretation of each painter is unique. For more info and a look at some of this year’s artworks, check out the website at: www.wetpaintshowandsale.weebly.com
The Pearl Ellis Art Gallery is located at 1729 Comox Avenue in Comox. The Gallery is currently open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, noon-4 p.m. with COVID protocols in place.
