Showcase features 15 different artists

Pastels, acrylics, watercolour, mixed mediums and more

For those who like to share in local artist’s love of fine art and creativity, there’s a new exhibit.

The Showcase Gallery in the South Cariboo Business Centre is featuring 15 different artists each of whom is displaying their definition of Comfort in Winter which is the theme of the show.

The theme was voted on by the artists in the Cariboo Artists Guild, which has around 40 members according to Leslie Ginther who’s one of the artists exhibited.

As artists, it’s their interpretation what’s comforting to them in winter, according to Ginther

The painted works, in mediums including pastels, acrylics, watercolour, mixed mediums and more, feature everything from hot drinks, to warm destination vacation, snowmen, hot tubs and potatoes.

Some of the paintings are for sale while others are not.

Past themes have included things such as snow and toys, says Ginther, adding that every painting that’s submitted for a group display is displayed.

For Christmas, they’ve also added some extra decorations to match the decorations of businesses in the building.

While some of the artists have had extensive training, Ginther says there’s a wide range of backgrounds among the artists displayed.

The exhibit features some of the South Cariboo’s most well-known artists, including a piece by Neil Pinkett who will be featured as a solo artist after the Comfort in Winter exhibit.

The switchover is currently planned for the start of January but that could change according to Ginther due to the holiday season.
