A two-woman art exhibit inspired by a three-week holiday to Italy and Greece opens at the Ladysmith Waterfront Gallery this weekend.

The works of Anne Jones and Leona Petrak was created as a result of their adventures in May of 2016

Traveling with professor Jane Cole on a Vancouver Island University Fine Arts Tour, Petrak and Jones chose to arrive early in Sorrento allowing time for exploration and meandering in the quaint city while waiting for the rest of the tour.

One of the highlights was a separate day-long tour off the Amalfi Coast.

Leaving Sorrento the tour carried on to Pompeii, Rome and the Vatican, then on to Greece to visit the Peloponnesus and finally Athens.

A separate five day Greek Island tour on a cruise ship followed with several members of the larger group including Jane.

On board our ship, they visited Mykonos, the Turkish port of Kusadasi, Rhodes, Heraklion in Crete and Santorini.  Each port was different and had a flovour all its own.

In port Jones and Petrak chose to walk and spend time in the streets and coffee shops taking photos, making sketches and shopping.

The exhibition is a compilation of images and impressions that remain vibrant in their memories.

Travels with Jane opens at the Ladysmith Waterfront Gallery November 19 – 27, 2016.

A gala opening will take place this Saturday at 7 p.m.

Anyone interested in viewing the exhibition can visit the gallery between 12 noon to 4 p.m. at  610 Oyster Bay Drive. For more information visit www.ladysmithwaterfrontgallery.com.
