    During the inaugural First Thursdays Art Walk 21 canvases were painted at stations at the Ferry Building Gallery, Silk Purse Gallery, West Vancouver Art Museum & Buckland Southerst Gallery. Visitors to these sites were encouraged to pick up a brush & add their personal creative mark. 

    Members of the creative mural group 13 Feet Off the Ground met over 8 hours to respond to the artwork created & add the finishing touches to the canvases.

    We are excited to unveil the final image in the main lobby of the Kay Meek Arts Centre & celebrate all the creative, talented & adventurous members of the community who added their artistic touch to create this piece!

    Each canvas will be a part of a silent auction to raise funds for the 2020 First Thursdays Art Walk. Make a bid on one of these unique works of art & help make this exciting art walk happen again next summer!

    Painters  Jodie BlaneyMaryanne Jespersen & Jilly Watson depict landscapes with bold colours & dramatic brushstrokes in their individual & contrasting styles. 

    Blaney draws on memory, imagination & intuition to move beyond realism & capture a whimsical, stylized interpretation of the Canadian landscape.

    Jespersen's impressionist approach & minimal palette leave her work open to interpretation of what natural scenes are being depicted.

    Watson uses bright colours & expressive brush strokes to capture the movement & energy found in nature.

    Opening Reception: Tuesday, Oct. 15th, from 6-8pm

Bob Araki & Sara Jalali, November 5 - 24

Artistry in Stitch, The North Shore Needle Arts Guild, November 26 - December 15
