Don't forget to Eat your Vegies

Our Summer Show, "Picnics and Potlucks" continues for another week, so it's time to come and see all the works created for the show in person before they are gone! If that's not enough to tempt you, we have air conditioning!

Today we thought we'd remind you all to eat your vegies or at least enjoy and perhaps buy one of these paintings that were created especially for the show. Both artists Alexander Koltakov and Merrilee Sett are new artists to the gallery walls and we're delighted with all these delicious greens. Almost makes you want to go home and make hodge podge.

Still Life with Vegetables and Greens, by Alexander Koltakov, 24" x 24", Oil on Canvas

Stalks and Bonds, by Merrilee Sett measures 16" x 20" and is watercolour on paper

Merrilee also shared a favourite potluck recipe with all of us, that pairs very nicely with her watercolour. Check it out below and enjoy making it tonight!  Hope to see you soon at the gallery!!!!
