Diverse Approaches to Watercolours
March 10 to April 21, 2012 - Community Gallery

Gordon Greenhough (Comox BC) - watercolour painting
Tony Martin (Courtenay BC) - acrylic paintings
Clive Powsey (Cumberland BC) - watercolour paintings

Opening Reception: Friday March 9 from 7-9pm, artists in attendance

In this exhibit, three Comox Valley artists present their explorations in watercolour painting. From light, shadow, and the precipitations of pigments emerge the natural world images of Gordon Greenhough. In Clive Powsey’s alpine landscapes he merges the “horrifyingly beautiful with varying degrees of menace”. Tony Martin’s subject matter is derived from his visual travel diaries and the home environment.

Gordon Greenhough is a graduate of the University of Calgary where he pursued his career in Education and Fine Arts. For twenty seven years, he taught Fine Arts to secondary students in Calgary.

Tony Martin was educated at St. Martin’s School of Art (now Central St. Martin’s) and Alberta College of Art (Post Grad Painting), and recently retired as Director / Curator of Comox Valley Art Gallery, Courtenay, BC after 19 years.

Clive Powsey studied drawing, painting and printmaking at the Ontario College of Art, graduating in 1980 and has exhibited his work regularly since 1981 in group and solo exhibitions. He has also worked in animated film and television with screen credits as an art director and background artist/stylist.)

From the Treasure Box - A Look Inside Children’s Imaginations
March 10 to April 21, 2012 - George Sawchuk Gallery

Mixed media artworks by students ages 5 to 12
tutored by Comox Valley artist Tracy Kobus

Opening Reception: Friday March 9 from 7-9pm, artists in attendance

This is an exhibit of artwork by children, ages 5-12, created in Tracy Kobus’ kids art classes in the past year. In these private group classes, Tracy shares a simple art lesson such as; how to create the illusion of distance, make shapes appear 3-D or compose an entire picture. The kids then transform these new ideas into amazing individual creations.

Throughout her art classes Tracy lets the kids know that their “imagination” is like a golden treasure box inside themselves that holds a bottomless source of ideas; when they ask it to, it will open!
