The Bayside Gallery, located in the dining room of the Bayside Oceanfront Resort in Parksville, presents a new exhibition.
In partnership with the McMillan Arts Center (MAC), works by Tony Grove, Dawne Brandel and Patt Scrivener will be presented until June 30.
Tony Grove has worked as a commercial illustrator and artist, producing work for Vancouver clients and magazines. One of the largest illustration projects was a book for the United Nations through the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, which has since been published in several languages for distribution in the whole world. In 2005 he began working full time for himself as an artist, writer, part time teacher, custom carpenter and boat builder while working from his home studio nestled amongst the trees of the Gabriola Island.
Dawne Brandel was born in Kelowna. From an early age, she always loved the arts and immersed herself in art classes throughout school. Drawing and composition classes at the Alberta College of Art reinforced Brandel’s desire to take things to the next level. Floral design and horticulture became a passion where she spent most of her adult career. The floral arts teach all about composition, texture, design and color that influence his paintings today. The retirement from floristry allowed for the commitment of time to paint.
Patt Scrivener was born in Nipawin, Saskatchewan and grew up on a grain farm with four siblings. Although there was always a lot of work to do, there was also time to create.
Scrivener works in many mediums including acrylic, encaustic, and cold wax with oil. His work includes images of people, landscapes and abstraction. The layering of a variety of media provides an assortment of possibilities in her work. In 2007 she studied life coaching and it was instrumental in her decision to become a full-time artist and help others develop their creativity.
