Black Star art weeks at Pynelogs

Also at Pynelogs: Artist pARTy Soiree Thursday, July 19th

By Molly McLellan

Assistant Curator

Over the next few weeks there are going to be some awesome days at Pynelogs! Starting soon we have three Black Star summer art camps at the beach for youth to choose from. Spend a whole week creating art pieces with the splendid ladies of Black Star Studios. Each camp lasts five days and they happen the weeks of July 15th, 22nd, and August 12th. Each day starts at 10 a.m. and goes till 2:30 p.m. Take inspiration from the beautiful surroundings of Kinsmen Beach as you draw and create. There will be everything from acrylic painting, polymer clay projects, papier-mâché, and mixed media. You’ll get to have lunch outside. At the end of the week each group will hold an art show at Pynelogs for everyone to come and enjoy. Spots go fast so book in soon with Black Star, and don’t forget, locals get 10 per cent off as well as members of the Black Star Creative Club.

We’ve also got our second Artist Soiree of the season where you can come and meet the local artists of this Valley and hear all about what inspires their work. Pynelogs’ second show features the talents of Cecilia Lea, Deanna Gauthier, Kathleen Davies, Lisa Zavitz, and Sharlene Scofield. This show promises something for everyone with a mix of oil landscapes, wearable quilt art, photography, mixed media acrylic, and unique mixed textile pieces that combine sewing and felting. The Artist pARTy Soiree night is Thursday July 18th, 7-9 p.m. There will be live music and a cash bar, so come out and enjoy the incredible talents of our amazing local artists; it’s an evening you definitely won’t want to miss.
