VanDusen Plein Air activities APRIL

We’re almost there –  after a month or so of seeking out the best trees and and views I am down to touching up 5 paintings. 2 canvasses and 3 panels…and I will add one final piece on the day of the PAINT OUT & PICNIC April 20. Watch Carol McQuaid’s great little video about her printmaking on location (boy she works fast! ;-)

Enda Bardell – watercolor on location in Van Dusen gardens

There will be some anticipation waiting for the big reveal – the paintings from that day that will go up on the wall as the last part of our exhibition. Come and watch us work on location  OR  join the fun! Bring your sketchbook, moleskine, watercolor pad or full pochade box and enjoy a day under the blossom. Or find the coloring station and have fun coloring our free illustrated blossom pages. Thanks to OPUS ART SUPPLIES for their support !

The Gallery is accessible at no charge – in the main foyer of the fabulous new VanDusen Botanical Garden building.
(NOTE: garden entry fee + $20 picnic must be ordered by April 17th)

Order you PETAL PICNIC to enjoy together as we gather at days end 3:00 pm. and then come down to the Discovery Room Gallery to meet the exceptional painters that have worked on this event and see the final works in framed display.
ALL the work will be for sale to benefit the artists,  VCBF and VanDusen Gardens.

Informal ARTIST Reception at  4:00.  Discovery Room Gallery
