Third Annual Paint Out Sept. 12-13

The third annual Alberni Valley Paint Out is happening on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 12 and 13, 2015.

The third annual Alberni Valley Paint Out is happening on Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 12 and 13, 2015, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., with the support of DRAW Gallery in conjunction with the International Plein Air Painters (IPAP) 13th Great Worldwide Paint Out.

Artists will paint at Sproat Lake Provincial Park at various locations on Saturday, Sept. 12 and at Harbour Quay on Sunday, Sept. 13. At 4:30 p.m. there will be an exhibit of the weekend’s work and a reception at The Starboard Grill at  Harbour Quay. The public is invited to view the art and meet the artists. The event is free.

Contact Astrid Johnston at 250-724-2056 or e-mail art@drawgallery.com for more information  or if you would like to participate.

Life Drawing workshops at DRAW Gallery begin again and continue each week.

Featuring live model figure drawing, artists gather together to paint, sketch or sculpt from different live models. The models will provide a long pose, which will give participants time to complete their work.

Teen night at the gallery welcomes all young artists every Monday 6-8 p.m.  ‘Open Studio’ takes place every Tuesday and Wednesday 6-8 p.m. The fee to participate is $12.50.  Artists can also pre-register for five sessions for a fee of $60. Space is limited.  Call Astrid at 250-724-2056 and book your spot.

The group exhibit ‘Fall in Love with Art’ comes to the DRAW Gallery from Sept. 3-Nov. 27. The artist reception takes place on Friday, Sept. 18 6-8 p.m. at DRAW Gallery.

Featured artists are Lucas Chickite, Cecil Dawson, Pamela Holl Hunt, Ann McIvor, Todd Robinson and Michael H. Wright.
