Local resident Jackie Coughlin is the feature artist being showcased in the backroom of the Hope Arts Gallery during the month of July. Jackie has done artwork in other mediums for many years and started watercolor painting about six years ago and loves it.

“It is a challenge and fun to see how the paint reacts on the paper”.

This is her first solitary show and she would like to welcome everyone to drop in and take a look. Her body of work includes a variety of subject matter from past to present, such as portraits, florals and landscapes from near and far.

The public is invited to the opening reception July 5th from 7-9 p.m. Come and meet the artist. Refreshments will be served and children are welcome.

The exhibit runs from July 1 – 28 at the Hope Arts Gallery – 349 Fort Street. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday 10am to 4 p.m. For information call 604-869-2408, 604-869-3400 or hopearts@telus.net
