Images of boats, landscapes, and even a Warhol-inspired Marilyn Monroe are among the colourful pieces on display at North Delta’s George Mackie Library this fall/winter.

From Nov. 6 through Dec. 31, the Mackie’s Art Wall is showcasing the works of White Rock artist Jacqueline Yearsley.

Immediately after retiring as an interior designer in December of 2013, Yearsley picked up a supply of paint brushes, canvases and lots of tubes of acrylic paint, and began her new vocation. Her style is abstract landscapes, creating art she describes as colourful and varied.

“Summers of my early years were spent with my grandparents in Dover, U.K., either in the ocean or on their pebbly beaches. [Ever] since that time, I have [loved] the colour and shape of stones and rocks, and, as young kids will do, I went home with pockets full of wet sand, stones and rocks,” Yearsley said in a press release.

“Much to my husband’s chagrin, I still fill my pockets with rocks, sand and pebbles, and if there is a chance of discreetly burying them in our cars or motor home, I will!”

Artists interested in displaying their work are encouraged to visit the library and check out the space available, then contact community librarian Minakshi Sidhu at 604-594-8155 to reserve a spot in 2024.
