Painting Pals invites everyone to the Pearl

Two of the most popular artists are back again at the Pearl Ellis Gallery and are once again presenting their works of art in the downtown Comox gallery.

Bev Johnston and Sharon Lennox, also known as the "Painting Pals", paint together and have been friends for many years. They are excited to be exhibiting a collection of acrylic, oil and scratchboard paintings from December 1st – December 19th at the Pearl Ellis Gallery.

Johnston and Lennox use different mediums from each other, both paint their chosen subjects realistically but have a distinctly different style.

Johnston's chosen medium is acrylic, her astonishing street scenes will lure you into the very place she paints, making you feel, "I am here looking down this beautiful street!" Look closely, a bike maybe leaning up against a building.

Scratchboard and oils are Lennox's mediums. Her carefully rendered birds, animals and wildlife will treat you to a magical feeling of the subject being alive. Every smallest detail, from eye to feather and fur, will amaze you!

Their paintings have become increasingly popular with collectors and art lovers world-wide. Johnston has won the Pearl Ellis Gallery People Choice Award twice and won runner-up award several other times. Lennox has also won the Gallerys People Choice award twice and has won a runner-up award each of the other years the show has appeared at the gallery.

Painting Pals opening reception will be held December 5th from 1:00-4:00, featuring refreshments and a door prize, enter your name, draw will take place at 4:00pm on December 5th.
