PAULA ANN VAN (Smith; nee Gregovski; formerly Whynot) shows an eclectic mix of her past and present works, along with a glimpse into the future… featuring art from Paula’s soon-to-be-released novel, “Cove Castle and the Tunnels of Doom” (for mature audiences, or immature-over-18).

Paula’s “TIDES OF TIME” exhibit at the SALT SPRING GALLERY http://www.saltspringgallery.combegins with a RECEPTION from 5 to 7 pm on FRIDAY, APRIL 26th. Come out and try Paula’s famous “Ginger Justification” cookies and “Harshmellow” candy, original recipes she features in Cove Castle, plus other treats!

Paula explores stained glass beyond-the-glass, still life, portrait & figure, abstract, and best of all, naughty political satire! If you’ve seen DJ Trump’s presidential coins, well, you’ll have to check out Paula’s coins! Her version is called Spectercles. Paula creates with polymer clay, glass, paint, pencil, fabric/yarn and ink.

Enter a raffle to win a novel or a mug! No purchase necessary, but her show prices will be crazy! Prices range from $5 to $325. Many framed originals will be priced at $50 or less! You can acquire a nice piece of art without breaking the bank! Who knows, if Paula’s novel is a hit, you could end up with a collector’s item!

In the meantime, get the pulse of Paula’s show and novel, by listening to her playlist, “Sunrise in Westview,” at http://www.Spotify.com …it’s there, to share, with you!

Paula’s show runs until Wednesday, May 8th and is not for the faint-of-heart. Hope to see you there!

Cheryl Long salt spring gallery Poster.jpg

Once upon a time.....not so long ago, Cheryl put a mattress in the back of her car and decided it was time to remember how awesome this country is. In this body of work, she shares with us her unique relationship to some of the landscapes she was inspired by on her travels.

Drawing on her experience as a massage therapist and illustrator, Cheryl allows herself to get carried away by the language of shape and form, and celebrates the profound connection between our environment and ourselves.
