Hope artists team up for new exhibit

Wild & Wonderful runs Sept. 1-28 in the Hope Arts Gallery backroom

Jenny Wolpert

Jenny Wolpert and Shirley Wotherspoon will be the featured artists at the Hope Arts Gallery for September in their show Wild & Wonderful.

This is the twelfth year the duo has presented a substantial body of new work at the gallery, and their art will again be joyful in colour and wide ranging in subject matter and media.

Wotherspoon is known for her expressive brush strokes in works of oil, acrylics and watercolour with side forays into the ancient art of encaustic painting.

Her landscapes capture the essence of a place, whether it be a pool, mountain trail or flower garden. She has been painting for over 40 years, and even disabling pain has not stopped her creativity.

Wolpert’s work reflects her wide ranging curiosity and awe in the variety and abundance of life. Travelling, even just a walk by Thacker Marsh, provides an opportunity to see and record wonder in the experience.

She will be showing acrylic paintings exploring the value and structure of women’s art, digital work based on Hope’s unique landscape, and photographs that celebrate nature in western Canada.

Wild & Wonderful runs Sept. 1-28 in the backroom gallery.

An artists reception takes place on Saturday from 7-9 p.m. Refreshments will be provided.

The Hope Arts Gallery is located 349 Fort St.
