Five incredible talents on display in latest Pynelogs showPosted: August 28, 2012

By Joshua Estabrooks

As we all scramble to make the most of the best part of summer, make sure you remember that our art shows are going strong down here at Pynelogs Cultural Centre.

Our sixth juried artist showcase is up now, and includes five incredible talents from up and down this wonderful valley.

Nelson’s Bryn Stevenson was born into a family of working artists, and has been practicing his own brand of oil painting for many years. He draws his inspiration from his backcountry explorations, classifying his works as an impressionistic form or realism.

Panorama ski instructor by day, and prolific acrylic painter by days off, Jon Howlett has done well in establishing his style as one of the more unique and stylistic artists in the valley today. Howlett’s unmistakable works express his passion for the natural world around him in a way that is truly his own.

Vittorio (Vic) Panei lives and works in Fairmont Hot Springs. He purchased his very first camera in 1967, and hasn’t looked back. Never leaving home without his camera, Vic’s photographs capture some of the most breathtaking scenery and backcountry moments you will ever see.

A compulsive artist, Calgary’s Colin Bell paints in a variety of mediums, including oils, acrylics and watercolours. He was born and educated in Argentina as an architect, but retired in 1994. Since then he has been capturing inspiring landscapes as much as possible, often times painting on location, or “En plein air.”

Known for her vivid use of colour, watercolour artist Lori Lees-Stout will be showing a collection of her most recent works. She describes her style as taking what she sees in front of her and changing the colour and intensity to what she feels it should be. Her unique varnishing process allows her watercolours to be framed with or without glass.

The show begins at Pynelogs on Tuesday August 28, and will be on display until Sunday, September 9.  Gallery Hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.  The Artist Opening Event is Wednesday August 29 from 7 to 9 p.m. These events have become wildly popular, and are a unique chance to meet with the artists themselves and have a beverage while you peruse the freshly hung works of art.
