Painters and potters come together for Changing Colours

Two local watercolour painters will be showing off their latest work at The Arts Station for the next month.

Two local watercolour painters will be showing off their latest work at The Arts Station with an exhibit titled ‘Changing Colours’ for the next month.

Artists Pamm Ciupa and Anne Aitken-Anderson have been creating at SnowFlake Studio, as well as spending time taking their paints, easels, and brushes outside to use nature as a muse. Through their extensive knowledge of the medium and experience with South Country watercolour workshops, the painters are ready to finally display their own representations of nature.

Ciupa and Aitken-Anderson drew inspiration from the recent changing of the seasons. As summer has transitioned into autumn, the painters found themselves surrounded by brilliant reds, yellows, and oranges; colours and images that are reflected in the brushstrokes and lush colours present in their art.

The artists have partnered with members of the pottery guild to create a dynamic, multi-media show. The potters at The Arts Station have been hard at work in their studio to create a variety of beautiful and functional pieces, from hand built to wheel thrown, to accompany the watercolour paintings.

Ciupa and Aitken-Anderson, along with members of the pottery guild will celebrate their exhibit at an opening reception Thursday night at The Arts Station. The event is open to the public and runs from 7 to 9 p.m., featuring drinks, appetizers, good conversation, and great art. Changing Colours will be on display until November 27.
