Comox Valley Art Gallery invites you to join us for an afternoon Art Talk at 2pm-3pm on Saturday March 24 in the main exhibition space. Exhibiting artists Clive Powsey (Cumberland), Tony Martin (Courtenay) and Gordon Greenhough (Comox) will give a talk and slideshow concerning their process, materials and subject matter.
The three artists are currently showing their distinct style of watercolour paintings in the CVAG Community Gallery. Opening to a packed crowd a few weeks ago, this exhibition displays Powsey’s ethereal mountain landscapes, Martin’s colourful photo-realistic urban scenes and Greenhough’s light and shadow filled depictions of natural locales.
Gordon Greenhough is a graduate of the University of Calgary where he pursued his career in Education and Fine Arts. For twenty seven years, he taught Fine Arts to secondary students in Calgary.
Tony Martin was educated at St. Martin’s School of Art (now Central St. Martin’s) and Alberta College of Art (Post Grad Painting), and recently retired as Director / Curator of Comox Valley Art Gallery, Courtenay, BC after 19 years.
Clive Powsey studied drawing, painting and printmaking at the Ontario College of Art, graduating in 1980 and has exhibited his work regularly since 1981 in group and solo exhibitions. He has also worked in animated film and television with screen credits as an art director and background artist/stylist.)
