Sooke, BC, August 1–31, 2010 – Sooke Harbour House Art Gallery features for the month of August three Vancouver Island artists who create innovative works in clay, glass, and acrylic on canvas, board, and digital.
Harriet Hiemstra works in clay and mixed media using brightly colored imagery and contrasting color, shape and texture to weave a lively story on each piece. Her central theme is to celebrate the feminine with grace, charm, and elegance.
Sandra Fowler, LeedAP, works with fused glass for exterior and interior spaces as well as bowls and small free standing pieces to delight the eye and reflect the heart. Her Photovoltaic glass panels combine beauty and technology by collecting solar energy which is converted and stored in a battery to allow self-illumination with renewable energy all year round.
Dawn Joy Ritchie works in acrylic on canvas, board, and digital creating joyful images of whimsical women in a colorful expressionistic style. She enjoys portraying bold, independent women often with a pet cat, bird or fish.
Opening reception with artists and free refreshments, Sunday, August 1st, 2010, 1:00pm-4:00pm.
