Kicking off 2024 Spotlight Season by Introducing Sue Pyper

March 16 - April 6, 2024

We are thrilled to share that our artistic journey is reaching new heights with our first spotlight show in 2024. Sue Pyper is joining our gallery after we corresponded with her for three and a half years! 

Sue Pyper's artistic muse stems from the wonders of the natural world - be it wild creatures, expansive oceans, towering trees, or rugged coastlines. As an immigrant from the UK to Vancouver Island, she brings a distinct appreciation for West Coast nature, finding inspiration in the swirling, sculptural beauty of creatures like whales, seals, and octopus. Even pebbles and seaweed captivate her with their deep colors and curving symmeties.

Currently, the creative focus involves working with ethically harvested live-edge wood from Vancouver Island. The tactile allure of painting on the wood's surface, coupled with it unique shape and grain, feels like a conversation with each piece, guiding her on what to paint. She strives to preserve the natural grain, exposing its authenticity.

Sue will be in the gallery to meet and greet on Saturday March 16th from 12 to 3pm. We look forward to your visit!
