De Vine Arts Group show opens

Open Windows features work of 10 Summerland artists from De Vine Arts Group

The Summerland Community Arts Centre will have its first show in its Wharton Street location as members of the De Vine Arts Group present their works.

Open Windows: De Vine Arts Group features the work of 10 artists. The artists are Valerie Eibner (fused glass); Jean Evanishen (pottery); Irene Gray (pastels); Brandy Maslowski (fibre arts); Dale Matthews (watercolours); Cortney Riep (watercolours); Pat Scott (design and art/gift cards); Susan Scott (zentangle drawings and jewelry); John Topham (wood turning); and, Elaine Watts (watercolours & prints).

“We’re delighted to have De Vine Arts open our new gallery. They bring a wide range of artistic expression to the show,” said Susan Gibbs of the Summerland Arts Council

De Vine Arts was formed in 2014 as an off-shoot of the Summerland Studio Tour.

The primary objective was to provide mutual support and marketing opportunity for local artists, many of whom had their work featured at various wineries in the area.

The name, De Vine Arts, was inspired by the relationship between artists and the wine industry. Bottleneck Drive wineries have generously sponsored some of the De Vine Arts activities.

De Vine artists have exhibited in a number of cultural events, including two meet-and-greet showcase presentations at Summerland Waterfront Resort, Quest Society Garden Tour, Summerland Community Exposition, Centennial Celebrations of the Friends of the Ornamental Gardens, and in Cultural Days events.

The show runs from April 6 to May 12 and represents a fresh new approach to many of the artists’ works.

The gallery opening takes place at the Wharton Street location on April 6 from 7 to 9 p.m.

Refreshments will be served and artists will be in attendance to discuss their works. There is no admission charge, but donations to help support the work of the Arts Council will be appreciated.
