‘Familiar Faces & Places’ with PERRIN SPARKS...July 3 – July 31st 09 Artist’s Reception: Friday, July 3rd, 6 – 8pm
New works by Perrin Sparks in Oils, Pastels, Watercolors and Gouache showing for the month of July. Familiar and perhaps unknown views of our island and its inhabitants. Come see what or who you recognize.
All these images have been completed within the past 14 months and incorporate many of Quadra residents or scenes painted 'en-plein-aire" (outside, in the sun, rain, wind, bugs-in-your-teeth reality!) around the Island. Since Perrin works hard at completing the subject on site, instead of finishing up with a photograph, there is a 'sketchy' quality to many of them. It's hard to get the shadows or a model to hold still for hours at a time, but it's that very quality of chasing the light that provides the challenge to catch what captured Perrin’s interest from the start. Join us in welcoming Perrin at her Reception on First Friday July 3rd from 6 – 8pm.
DRAW Gallery invites the public to enjoy and savor the creative spirit of the artists who live amongst us. The gallery stands by its commitment to bring contemporary westcoast art in an intimate setting. Open Thurs-Sat 12-6pm and is located on Quadra Island at Village Square, in the rear – just follow the signs. Drop by and see the show next time you are at the Square. Openings First Fridays.
