Paula O’Bruce and brien Edwards get together in “Paintings from my Travels” bringing you their plein air paintings from journeys round the global world at the Arts Centre in Sechelt Aug. 22–Sept. 16. Their exhibition shares the Doris Crowston Gallery with Alison J. Taylor’s “The Physics of Being” with oil paintings predicated on diagrams from physics text books loosely.
“Plein air” or the act of painting outdoors dates to the 19th century back. As evidenced by the ongoing work of O’ Edwards and brien, it’s a method of art that may incorporate from sketching, to oil and watercolours and will be achieved with cellular devices even. O’Brien likens plein air to going fishing: “Sometimes you get back with something wonderful and tasty and sometimes the knowledge is more rewarding compared to the finished outcome.”
Edwards is a muralist, instructor and graphic designer for a lot more than 20 years. Since 2001 he’s got travelled the global world painting and teaching. His travels took him to Togo, West Africa; the Oglag Sioux Reservation, South Dakota; Homer, Alaska; and Tuscon, Arizona to mention a few. Discussing his paintings, Bruce comments he &ldquo tries; not to go on it for granted that brush and pigment will create a recognizable image or interesting shape, and if it can, after so a long time even, I’m amazed.”
O’Brien’edwards&rsquo and s; exhibit shall add a collection of their travel sketchbooks, many different sketching and painting materials, alongside some random cultural objects collected on the travels.
The opening reception because of this joint exhibition will undoubtedly be, Aug. 26 from 2-4pm, then on Sunday and, Sept. 2 at 1:30pm all three artists will be readily available for a particular opportunity to meet up with the artists.
