Wet Paint at Saratoga features 11 local artists

A group of art friends who have painted and shared their passion for several years are excited to be hosting their second “Wet Paint” art sale in a Saratoga Beach garden Aug. 22-23.

The 11 artists, from Courtenay, Dove Creek, Black Creek, Campbell River, Comox and Sayward plan to delight the senses with their fresh and marvellous array of paintings.

The art of Lee Caflisch, Loree Cunningham, Stephenie Davidson, Lynda Glover, Sonia Hauser, Michelle Ohlsson, Lesley Rieck, Kathi Rudko, Karen Martin Sampson, Victoria Scott and Nancy Townsend represent a wide range of experience from a few years to more than two decades and an eclectic mix of subjects and styles.

Seascapes, landscapes, still life, figurative art and abstracts in a variety of mediums (pastel, oil, watercolour and acrylic) will be on display at the show. While the coastal environment can be seen reflected in many of the artists’ works, the style and interpretation of each painter is unique.

Several of the artists will have their easels set up and be painting ‘en plein air’.  They will be happy to discuss their process, technique and inspiration with the public.

The show and sale will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 22 and Sunday, Aug. 23, in Lesley’s Saratoga Beach garden at 8870 Clarkson Drive, Black Creek. Light refreshments will be available.
