Afternoon with Sally Chupick – Artist In Residence
August 28, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
On Saturday, August 28th, we have a great pleasure of inviting the art enthusiasts and visitors to our gallery to meet our Victoria artist Sally Chupick, who will join us in the early afternoon from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm with her tools of trade, on the back patio by the upper entrance to the gallery.
Born in Nova Scotia, Sally lived and worked in Europe and Australia. Her creative journey in the early years encompassed a career in the fashion industry as one of the stepping stones in discovering her passion for painting. Over thirty years ago, while living in England, Sally started working in watercolours, producing works of art in this medium for 15 years. A move to Australia 20 years ago lead to furthering her professional development and tremendous artistic growth through studying art history and oil painting.
Sally’s art creation is rooted in traditional representation methods, which evolve while exploring new directions in the process of application. Her current medium is a combination of traditional oils and oil-sticks which she uses to sublime effects.
Sally’s light-filled paintings depict gardens, parks, neighbourhoods and the coastal areas that surround us, and speak of her ability to abstract the landscapes using soft palette and subtle shifts in colours to create poetic, airy representations of the places and subjects that inspire her.
Sally Chupick is an avid plein-air painter, noted for her ability to eloquently capture the essence of a place. Her field studies often serve as the preliminary steps of the creative process which inform her subsequent and larger studio works. It’s a joy to watch her create and to experience her warm, uplifting and graceful ways of sharing her passion with others.
