Meet Claire Christinel – Artist In Residence
September 4, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Delighted and honoured that our “Still Life Diva” Claire Christinel will be joining us at Aquamaris Art Gallery in the early afternoon on Saturday, September 4th, 2021 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm, we cordially invite you to stop by our gallery on the second floor of the Duncan Garage Building for a chance to meet her and to witness the creation of a work of art that celebrates the magic of late summer through the universally appealing theme of sunflowers.
Claire will bring her already striking work in progress in oils, inspired by the glorious sunflower field of the Saanichton Corn Maze. She will be set up with her her easel near the back patio by our gallery, affording an opportunity for the general public, her enthusiastic followers and the friends of our gallery to observe her in her element, learn about her process and feel the passion behind her art.
Inspired by the quality of light and shadow on an object, Claire Christinel combines the colour, pattern and sets the mood of a scene, creating works of art of extraordinary beauty while striking the balance between realism and painterly interpretations.
