Art Encounter: Sheila Mather and Gold Leaf

During Regular Gallery Hours Until Saturday August 1

For 25 years Sheila Mather worked as an independent designer/illustrator and owner of Fabric Graphics in Gastown, Vancouver. When she left the city for the slower pace of the Island, she transitioned to painting. Her earlier paintings were done in pastel. She won several major national and international competitions and was awarded Master Pastelist designation by Pastel Artists Canada. The dust from the pastels became a problem, so five years ago she transitioned yet again, this time to oil and acrylic painting, and painting on metal leaf. She mixes metal leaf colours, layers and textures the leaf and creates works which are both original and unique. Her solo show features both her oil & acrylic landscapes, and her work on metal leaf. Sheila Mather will be demonstrating painting with gold leaf on Saturday July 25 and Saturday August 1 during regular gallery hours.
