Spotlight on ~ Lorraine Khachatourians

This year I am looking more and more at colour, that is, how to represent the colours I see in the various objects I enjoy painting, in way that comes closest to how I see them. Over the past few months I have been paying more attention to the characteristics of colour and how to recreate them from the pigments in the paint. It is like solving a puzzle or a mystery, both of which I have always enjoyed. Below are photos of both works in progress of my favourite subjects, fruits and metal reflections, which you will be able to see completed at our open studio, and some finished pieces.

‘Stories Inside’ – a current show

With winter in full swing, and the holiday season winding down, we can take time to check out other things going on in our community.

Paige Mortensen, a member of our group, currently has a show entitled ‘Stories Inside’ at the Royal Gallery, The Centre Mall Saskatoon, from now until January 8, 2016. The series was inspired by Paige’s trip to Europe, all the fascinating doors, and wondering about the stories behind them.

Here are a few of the pieces you can see at the show. Just until January 8th!
