Art Critic Review & Paint in the Park

Lemons and Lace II

I'm very excited to announce that today a review of my artwork appeared in the Victoria Times Colonist Newspaper. To view the article click here.

Paint in the Park

Also, many of Victoria's well known plein air artists will be gathering on Saturday September 13th for a Paint in the Park fund raising event for the Community Arts Council of Greater Victoria. The artists will all be assigned a position along the beautiful Cedar Hill Park & Trail behind the Cedar Hill Recreation Center. We will be painting from 11:00 to 4:00pm and during that time,  completed paintings will be picked up regularly and exhibited, ready for the silent auction. You can also walk the path and get a sneak preview of the pieces being painted. Starting at 5pm a wine reception and silent auction will take place, with the paintings starting under $50 and increasing in $5 increments with each bid. It's the perfect opportunity to collect a small piece or two by leading Victoria artists, have a fun afternoon with your friends, and at the same time help raise money for the Community Arts Council, which works tirelessly on a volunteer basis, to support the artists of Victoria. Hope to see you there!

  2. Hi Hilda! I'm over the moon. Pinch me quick! This is a very exciting moment for me. Thanks very much for your friendship and support. Cheers!

  3. What a great article! People want to know the artist behind the painting and I think I got to know you which adds to my experience viewing your paintings. I'm sure everyone else will have a similar experience and seek out your work at your exhibits.

    Congratulations Claire!

  4. Thank you so much for your comment Elizabeth. I hadn't taken the time to analyze how people would use the information in the article, but it's true that the more you know about the person and their inspiration, the more you understand and appreciate their art. Thanks for your insightful comment! Cheers Claire
