Artists at Work is inviting the public to take a peek into the works produced by Hope artists when they are alone with their art supplies.
Starting today, the Hope Art Gallery will host the show titled Sometimes I Just Need to Be Alone With My Art Supplies. Works from 20 artists in the Artists at Work group will be shown all month, the first show of the gallery’s 2018 season.
Founder of the group Sharon Blythe said there will be a wide range of mediums on display; acrylic, watercolour, Chinese brush painting and even tole painting.
The works are from Hope, Fraser Canyon and Agassiz artists. Many works are also inspired by the nature here, Blythe said, with Mount Hope and the Coquihalla River featured prominently.
At a reception Saturday, residents get a chance to meet the people behind the art.
Founded 10 years ago, the group has grown from six to 20 members and meets every Friday from September to June to paint together.
