Pearl Ellis Gallery Apr 24, 2018 – May 12, 2018
Monday Bunch paints for pleasure.
The Pearl Ellis Art Gallery will be presenting the 'Monday Bunch' annual spring art show and sale which begins April 24 and runs until May 12.
The gallery, located at 1729 Comox Avenue, is open to the public daily from 10 am to 4 pm. There will be a meet and greet reception, hosted by the artists on April 28 from 1 to 4 pm.
During the show there will be an exhibiting artist in attendance daily who will provide visitors with any information they may require. There is no charge to visit the gallery.
Each Monday morning from January until mid-May and from September till December, this group of enthusiastic artists meet at the Lion's Den below the gallery from 10 till 2 pm.
They are a non competitive group, who provide friendly support for each other and produce images in a refreshing and creative atmosphere. If you have ever thought that you would like to take up painting as a hobby, drop in on a Monday session and see the artists at work.
The members work in a variety of mediums, ranging from oils, acrylics, watercolours and pastels. Sharon Lennox, who is a an accomplished artist, works with scratchboard which is very beautiful and fairly new. There is no instructor but the member artists experiment with their own styles and at their own pace. They gain inspiration from each other and from a variety of other sources.
Subject matter varies widely and can range across landscapes, floral, portraits, wildlife, seascapes, modern, inspirational and architecture.
The Monday Bunch has been in existence for almost 40 years and currently has 24 members.
Pearl Ellis Gallery members receive 10% off the purchase of any painting of the first day of the show on Tuesday April 24.
New memberships for the Pearl Ellis Gallery can be purchased at any time for $25 a year.
