Painting by Judith Rackham

Wassup at Pynelogs

Artist pARTy soiree Thursday August 29th

By Molly McLellan

Assistant Curator

Over the next two weeks we will be having some exciting things happening down at Pynelogs! Our fourth artist pARTy soiree is happening tonight, Thursday August 29th, from 7 to 9 p.m. Come down to meet with some more of our extremely talented artists! This show features the brilliant skills of long-time potter Alice Hale and Judith Rackham’s unique 3-dimensional oil paintings that bring her landscapes to life. Lynne Grillmair will be presenting a retrospective of her mixed media skills through her creative use of gel mediums, paper, and sand. Paula Cravens acrylic collage pieces capture the relaxation and fun of the olden days, we swear you’ll feel as if you’ve been transported back in time; while Kimberly Olson tackles modern art with a new twist that will leave you with a greater love and appreciation for the medium. DJ Ilija will be spinning some excellent tunes, it’s definitely going to be a groovy night you won’t want to miss!

Following that evening on September 6th from 5 to 8 p.m., Pynelogs has the honour of holding an artist demo night with Judith Rackham. Come watch and learn how Judith uses a special marble grout compound she developed herself to create the gorgeous 3-dimensional oil paintings that are as exceptional and lovely as she is. During the demonstration she will be showing us how she creates her build-up technique as well as a painting in process. Just watching Judith is bound to ignite your senses and get your own creativity going.

As always Café Allium will be open for dinner both nights, but reservations are a must (250-342-0316)! Last artist pARTy soiree they were fully booked, so call sooner than later. The scallops served on a citrus pinot gris salad with cauliflower puree and the lamb shank served in a North African spiced Harissa stock with veggies and yam mash are both to die for! So get down to Pynelogs and come enjoy all we have to offer!
