New show at Gallery 1710

South Delta Artists’ Guild presents Foundations and Inspirations
Artist Monica Burrow with her painting called ‘Sailors Delight’ is part of the new South Delta Artists’ Guild show at Gallery 1710 in Tsawwassen.

The South Delta Artists’ Guild has found new inspiration and are ready for the reveal in its new show Foundations and Inspirations, on display until Nov. 20.

The show is based on photographs submitted by local artists. The photos have been hanging in the studio and the artists have been tasked to choose one or two to paint.

As many as five people have signed up for each painting.

Come and view the results at Gallery 1710 in Tsawwassen during operating hours Friday to Sunday between noon and 4 p.m.

Have you ever had the desire to paint?

Live artist’s demonstrations are planned Nov. 5 and 6 from noon to 4 p.m.

Nov. 5 topics include: the fascinating process of painting a pastel with Catherine Sheppard;  acrylic pouring producing intricate and colourful paintings featuring Mary Ellen Bullock; scratch art, a process beginning with black paper, demonstrated by Doris Wright; and watercolor, one of the more difficult mediums, shown by Marlene Strain.

On Sunday, Nov. 6, featured artists will demonstrate watercolor on rice paper with Eileen Fong; mono-print painting with Judith Turner; mixed media, using a diverse amount of paper and fabric with Roxsane Teirnan; and Lea Price producing whimsical sculptures made of polymer clay, which is baked in the oven. Price will also be showing ‘gallery ready’ framing, using recommended hardware and time honored techniques.

Gallery 1710 is located at 1710 56th Street, beside the South Delta Recreation Centre.
