Fabulous Faces at the PRISM Gallery on Saturna Island

June inaugurates my second Spring-Summer season at the PRISM Gallery on beautiful Saturna Island (open weekends and holiday Mondays 11am-5pm). The PRISM is located at a fine little spot near the ferry dock and pub, so you can drop in and browse when coming, going, or lingering. 

Saturna is filled with a variety of wonderful artists and crafts-people. Each has his or own studio, which I'm happy to help you locate. My own working studio on the island seems a bit hard for many people to reach, so I've opened this new spot to welcome you to my artwork.

The B&Bs and camping spots on Saturna are well recommended and range across preferences and budgets. Plan a get-away here if you can. And include a visit to the PRISM.

Here are a couple photos from Todos los Colores, Hazel Harris and my show at the main gallery at Cedar Hill Rec Centre in Saanich.   The show runs through October 1, 2017.

Hazel Harris and I are having a show this fall at the Main Gallery at Cedar Hill Rec in Saanich.  I have included work from my Arabesques, Energia and Harmonics series of abstract works on canvas.  Hazel's work celebrates Mexico and stems from a workshop she took in Puerto Vallarta.

We hired Kate Cino to help us with publicity and she created a webpage that gives more information on our work and backgrounds.  You can access it at

I found a quote that I really like and think applies to recent work of mine, and maybe to all my work:

"I make things that are not serious, but I do it very seriously."  Alexis Poliakoff

New Exhibit at Saturna Café:FLOW with theArtSaturna Tour

It's going to be a sun-filled, art-filled weekend this August 5-6! Our studio doors will be open and welcoming you to a feast of arts and crafts. The Community Hall has a sample from our variously talented artists and artisans, the newly-opened Prism gallery will greet you coming or going near the ferry, and the Saturna Café has a new show, called Flow and Form. It features intricately colourful abstract paintings that seek to capture the flow of natural energies (land, sea, and sky) of this special island

Come  enjoy all you can of Saturna sights, activities, people, art, food, and welcome pleasures this special ARTSATURNA weekend!
