Winter Artist Retreat

Winter Artist Retreat

Dear friends and art lovers,

It's hard to believe that 2017 is quickly coming to a close and looking back, I realize what a full year it has been. The time has flown by with both creative and domestic endeavours. There has been art exhibits, workshops facilitated and new work produced as well as family visits, care for a beloved ailing pet and the removal of a large cedar tree that had stood on our property for decades. And now it is time to recharge and renew.

To that end, I am going to be taking some time to catch my breath and to explore the new ideas that have been percolating in me throughout the year and I want to let what unfolds be unencumbered by the demands of social media, the sharing of work in progress or the pursuit of sales. And so, I am calling a time out and embarking on my Winter Artist Retreat.

I will be spending the time only a stones throw from a beach on the steel grey Salish Sea, facing the bracing winds and walking the green trails of the nearby forests. Reestablishing my connection with the natural world is grounding and a source of great inspiration to me, helping me to be present, in the moment and open to the beauty that surrounds me. This natural connection, as well as the odd combination and permutation of memory and dream that run through my imagination is an endless source of inspiration and a springboard for my creative expression.

I will return to social media and the sharing of my progress in the spring. I am excited to see what evolves from this getaway, my focused artist retreat.

Warm regards,

Dear art lovers,

Thank you, on behalf of the Eleven Equal Artists for another outstanding Power of Paint Exhibition on the Sunshine Coast, BC. I am not certain that 6 or so years ago, when we first conceived of Power of Paint that we realized what it was we were doing. Eleven Equal Artists have not only begun an art show, we have brought to life an event.

Through hard work and shared vision we have mounted not only an exhibition of our own diverse styles but an event which included a collaborative art piece, a bursary, live music, food and drink and the attention of the community at large.

Despite the collective hard work of all the artists involved in this show, it would mean nothing if not for you. The success of Power of Paint really lies with the art supporters, the curious, the casual observers and true believers who have attended this event at different times over the last 5 years. For that we thank you.

Special arty thank you to our volunteers, supportive partners and to Ginny Vail for raining in the toddlers.

Eleven Equal Artists :  Morley Baker, Josefa Fritz Barham, Todd Clark, Elizabeth Evans, Greta Guzek, Carol LaFave, Kim LaFave, Ian MacLeod, Cindy Riach, Nadina Tandy and Marleen Vermeulen
