A Meet and Greet on Saturday, January 17 from 1-4 pm will be the official opening of Ruth Rae's exhibit at the Pearl Ellis Gallery in Comox.
"All Over the Place" is Comox artist Ruth Rae's first solo show and a tribute to the spectacular surroundings in which we live. A west coaster from birth (she wonders why would one live anywhere else) she finds joyful inspiration in nature at every turn and captures that by studying it in daily forays into the nooks and crannies of the Comox Valley. To her, sharing that inspiration by creating visual art makes joyful sense! She hopes that by internalizing her surroundings and then allowing those impressions to be recreated she is serving her town and reflecting the values of her community. Favourite spots include Mack Laing Park, Goose Spit, Kye Bay, Royston waterfront, and Macdonald Wood.…
