Art Shows in Our Sanctuary
Each month, our Artarian team arranges for one or more local artists to display their works in our Sanctuary. See the Artarians Biography Manual in the stairway for bios and more info about all of our featured artists.
HANS GRAY was born and educated in the UK. He enjoyed drawing and painting from a young age. Hans works mainly in watercolours and acrylics with some explorations into graphite and pastels. When the weather is favourable, Hans works “en plein air”, but also works from photographs he has taken during local hikes and travels.
GHYSLAINE GRAY came from England in the 70’s and has lived in Vancouver on and off since then. She started taking drawing and painting classes about ten years ago and found acrylics to be her preferred medium for plein air work in the beautiful parks and gardens that surround us. When travelling she enjoys doing small ink and watercolour sketches to capture the atmosphere.
BEVERLY GRICE (painter) and FREDA COOK (weaver) are our featured artists for June. Their show demonstrates the artistic relationship between paint and fibre with nature as an inspiration. Using colour and relating that to the weaving was a challenge for Beverly; and viewing the aesthetic value of functional items, the challenge for Freda.
We hope you will enjoy viewing the interplay of these pieces.
