Jacquiline Coughlin teams up with her daughter Angela for a new exhibit called Pic ‘n Paints.

Local mother, daughter share a passion for art

Pics 'n Paints exhibit opens at the Hope Arts Gallery June 1

A new exhibit at Hope Arts Gallery will feature the fresh and lively styles of local artist Jacquiline Coughlin.

Interested in different artistic mediums, Coughlin owned a small ceramic shop in Boston Bar and was a partner in a Chilliwack bead store for about 10 years. Now that she’s retired, Coughlin has more time to travel and create different landscapes.

“I’ve just recently taken up painting and it has become a passion,” she said.

“I started with watercolors and I am trying my hand (brush) at acrylics. I am mainly self-taught, but have taken workshops from various artists so I am learning more all the time.”

Pics ‘n Paints will also showcase the work of Coughlin’s daughter Angela, who is a photographer from Abbotsford.

The back room exhibit runs June 1-28 at the Hope Arts Gallery. An artists reception will be held on June 2 from 7-9 p.m.

The Hope Arts Gallery is located at 349 Fort St.
