More than 300 artists contribute to Oil and Water exhibition

South Delta Artists Guild show starts June 7 at Gallery 1710

The South Delta Artists Guild invites all art lovers to view its annual juried show, Oil and Water.

Open to all B.C. artists, the Guild received an impressive array of more than 300 paintings with 102 making it into the show, which runs from June 7 to 23 at Gallery 1710 (56th St.) in Tsawwassen. Gallery hours are Thursdays from noon to 4, Fridays from noon to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.

Attendees can view an eclectic mix of artworks, spanning a wide array of styles and mediums. From stunning oil paintings, intricate watercolours, and soft pastels, the exhibition celebrates the dynamic interplay of different artistic techniques.

On Thursday, June 6, the opening reception will see the announcements of the winners, chosen by the judges and awarded cash prizes. Additional special prize categories, named “City Favorites,” have also been added.

This year’s judges includes Delta Police Chief Neil Dubord, Delta Fire Chief Guy McKintuck, and Delta councillors Jessie Dosanjh and Dylan Kruger. The involvement of these prominent figures underscores the event’s significance within the community and highlights the city’s commitment to fostering artistic expression.

Accolades go to the winners, whose names will be published on the Guild’s website and social media pages.

The South Delta Artists Guild continues to be a cornerstone of the Tsawwassen arts scene, providing a platform for both emerging and established artists to share their creations with the public. The jurists, artists Deborah Tilby, Leanne Christie, and White Rock Gallery Manager, Chakara Brown, faced a challenging task given the high quality and diversity of the entries. Some of their work will also be displayed, and available for sale.
