Our Featured Artist for April is Susan Pelkey. Susan works in watercolors and acrylics. She paints many subjects but especially enjoys painting landscapes and birds. She spent 4 years after retiring experimenting with different watercolour techniques to produce a large volume of work and invites you to come in and view.
Susan noticed several themes in her paintings while gathering work for the April featured artist display. She is fascinated with water because of its always changing shape depending on the terrain or the tidal movements. The colours can be as varied as the colour palette and the multitude of variations one can combine. Rocks are often found around water and are in sharp contrast, solid, angular, smooth, dark, light and in wide range of colours. The combination can be interesting and very effective.
Susan Pelkey has been involved in painting for many years. Susan has volunteered at the Quesnel Art Gallery and in June 2006 the gallery offered to host a show of her work. She has also sold her work at a small art gallery called The Breeze.
Come in soon and see her unique show in the BackRoom Gallery at Courtyard Gallery.
Courtyard Gallery is accepting applications from committed artists and artisans who are interested in becoming “gallery artists”. All pieces must be the original, hand-produced work of the artists, and members are chosen for originality and diversity of their work.
In exchange for a monthly membership fee, your work will be exhibited in the gallery. We charge a small commission fee of 20% and we all work co-operatively to run the gallery.
