Artbeat – Arts & Culture from the Edge – Jan. 15, 2021
‘Young Woman with Fedora’ by Nina Westaway

Artist in Residence

The Village Gallery is hosting a new show starting January 4, 2021 with the figurative art of Nina Westaway, a long-time volunteer with the gallery and Monashee Arts Council.  It is part educational and part-revelatory, exploring how figure drawing and portraiture can be taught and experienced.  She is also offering one-on-one free workshops, for an hour on Saturdays: January 9, 16, 23, and 30. All materials will be supplied. Adults and children 12 years and over are welcome to register, and no experience is necessary.  Four different topics are offered. The lessons are scheduled from 10:30 am to 2:30 pm at the gallery, 1975 Vernon Street (Highway 6).  Please phone 778-473-3029 for the list of topics and to schedule lessons.  

The gallery will also continue to offer small craft items from local artisans: cards, art calendars, jewelry, ceramics, sculpture, barnwood frames, turned wood items, divination cards, small paintings, aprons, knitted, woven items and art supplies.
