DRAW Gallery
Join us in welcoming Barbara at her Reception on First Friday August 7th from 6 – 8pm.

Barbara’s interest in portraiture sprang out of her wonder about how we see each other’s faces. What part of any face is the physical and what part is the heart or soul? This exhibit travels from one-minute continuous line drawings supported with pen, ink, watercolour and pencil, some enhanced by computer explorations through to larger portraits done from live models which include watercolour, acrylic and mixed media such as hand-made paper, dried flowers, string, and so on. Mixed media - Eclectic, “borrowing freely from various sources”, using a mixture of drawing, pencil, ink, watercolours and mixed media to explore our human connections.

DRAW Gallery invites the public to enjoy and savor the creative spirit of the artists who live amongst us. The gallery stands by its commitment to bring contemporary westcoast art in an intimate setting. Thurs-Sat 12-6pm and is located on Quadra Island at Village Square, in the rear – just follow the signs. Drop by and see the show next time you are at the Square. Openings First Fridays.
