Ladysmith Waterfront Gallery’s latest members show, ‘On the Waterfront’ covers a theme close to their hearts.
The show features 25 artists working in multiple mediums. Each artist submitted approximately 2 pieces each. It will be on exhibition until July 19, and will be available on the gallery’s website for three weeks after the show.
Francesca Reside, art council secretary and social media marketer for the Waterfront Gallery said the show provides local artists an opportunity to grow their skills and display their work in a professional setting.
“All of our members have a lot of fun when they come in to submit their pieces. It’s a nice variety to have that,” Reside said.
Cowichan Valley artist Trisha Oldfield will be speaking at the opening reception Saturday, July 6. Oldfield is a mixed media artist. Her style is influenced by Mexican culture as her family would travel seasonally to Mexico. Oldfield will be speaking about the online art economy, building an online gallery, and will give advice about marketting art on an international level. The talk begins at 7:00 pm at the Waterfront Gallery.
The event and show are free to attend.
