The South Delta Artists Guild often ends its monthly meetings with a demonstration by an accomplished artist. This month, artist Marney-Rose Edge captured beautiful skies in watercolour.
Watercolour is inclined to be a wishy-washy medium if the depth of colour is weak. Edge scooped up a saturated brush of colour and boldly added brilliant reds and blues which blended to form colour at its best.
Regular meetings of the guild keep local artists informed about shows and workshops. There are two new workshops this fall which are open to anyone with an artistic bent.
Artist Michael King presents Improving your Paintings with Principles I’ve Learned the Hard Way on Oct. 13 and 14, while Jack Turpin, an accomplished poet and artist, presents From Journal to Easel – An Adventure in Whimsy on Nov. 3 and 4.
Contact the guild at www.southdeltaartistsguild.com for supply lists and workshop times. Workshops are held in the guild’s studio workroom which has with plenty of table space for participants.
Guild members’ work is always on view at Delta Hospital, the Delta Medical Center, the Tsawwassen Medical Center and Beach Grove Golf Club, although the group lost another venue with the closing of the Delta Town & Country Inn.
It also has an extensive number of matted works, both original and prints, in bins at Gallery 1710 in Tsawwassen.
The guild’s next show, Artists Eyes, opens today and will be on display until Oct. 29 at Gallery 1710. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday to Sunday.
