No pandemic is going to stop the enthusiastic artists who give their all to the members of the South Delta Artists’ Guild.
Part of our membership duties include volunteer time to serve on a committee. Fourteen ladies hang paintings whenever a new show is up for display. Now this crew have a new focus – displaying their own paintings to our wonderful patrons. What better name for a show than “Hanging Together”, and aren’t we all making an effort to stick to guidelines and flatten the curve?
If you’ve never been to a show, mark Feb. 11 to 21 on your calendar.
The Guild has made concessions to ensure safety for anyone entering the gallery, located beside the curling rink at 1710 56th Street in Tsawwassen.
The show is available for viewing Thursday to Sunday from noon to 4 p.m., so wear your mask, and follow the arrows around the gallery. It will make a nice destination in our local community and get everyone out of their house to appreciate such fine work.
You might recognize some of the artists’ names: Diane Akey, Ailsa Brown, Coral Gurney, Ellen Hines, Lynne Mackenzie, Teresa Massel, Maureen Mitchell, Gillian Olsen, Lea Price, Debra Renner, Sharee Reynolds, Joan Stokes, Leah Terpsma, and Judith Turner. Their work includes paintings, sculpture, and ceramics.
Winter blahs, confined spaces – lack of contact with people have left us all anxious, and just sad that life has dealt us this annoying hand, so head to the art gallery and enjoy the show, and hang out with us.
If you are hesitant about a personal visit, or you have a yen to join a group of artists, why not do a virtual tour on our website? Online workshops are available, monthly meetings welcome you on Zoom, and the latest show can also be viewed. See all the details at: www.southdeltaartistsguild.com.
