Inspiration & Collaborations in the Gallery
What happens when six friends, painting at a cliff side studio overlooking the ocean, have a brainstorm? Well, over a series of get-togethers, both plein air and studio, in Metchosin, East Sooke and the broader Westshore, those six painters – some beginners, some lifelong artists – decided to each choose two photos of their beloved Vancouver Island, and then all paint the same subjects.
Inspired by their success, the same six painters, and some of their other artist friends, have turned their attention to collaborative pieces. Each creation will feature at least one of the core group of artists.
