An artist with talents in all forms of media is showing her most personal work at The Arts Station.

An artist with talents in all forms of media is showing her most personal work at The Arts Station.

Although Liza Gareau Tosh is bursting with talent and has successfully been able to master various forms

of media including composing music in both French and English (due to her French-Canadian and Metis ancestry), painting and sculpting, she has selected some of her more personal drawings using graphite and watercolour paints to be featured in the upcoming exhibit “Draw Me In.”

An artist’s upbringing is often highly influential on the direction taken in later years and Tosh accredits her hometown of Bellevue, Saskatchewan for her own “sense of artistic investment.” She was also mentored by the painter and sculptor, Aurore Houle, at the tender age of 14 where she was fortunate enough to realize her true calling.

Since her early years in Bellevue, she moved on to earn a Bachelor of Education with Distinction from the University of Regina which led her to teaching both Art and English in some of Saskatchewan’s francophone schools.

After furthering the education of other French-Canadian high school students through Art and English in Saskatchewan, she decided that she would continue her own education and begin studying at Universite Laval (Quebec City) and in Regina, where she was able to work with many artists she admired.

Tosh has been all over Canada but she and her family have been able to call Fernie their winter home for over 10 years and has been showing her own works locally since 2004.

If you are ever in Harris, Saskatchewan, be she to visit her newly opened Arts and Culture Centre, Routes Gallery, to see works showcased by established and emerging artists alike.

For more information contact Roxanne Beaton at The Arts Station at 250-423-4842.

Draw Me In opens on Thursday, December 29 at 7 p.m. and continues until Tuesday, January 25.
